2017 Club Race Dates

The Club organises a number of races throughout the year.  We have already had our first event - the Spring Handicap - and if you enjoyed it and would like to come along to our other races or if you missed it and are keen to make sure that you attend the next one, here are the dates for your diary: 

John McInally -  Tuesday 9th May - starting from Clatto we run approximately 7 miles on undulating roads and through Templeton Woods. 

Twin Peaks  - Tuesday 20th June - working in pairs, the team with the fastest combined time to get to the top of both Dundee Law and Balgay Hill wins.  Ged's hill sessions will pay off for this race!

Auchterhouse Hill Race -  Thursday 17th August - trail shoes are recommended for this race up Auchterhouse Hill 

Club 10k Championship - The male and female club 10k champions are decided at the Forfar 10k race on Sunday 20th August.  Entries are open at Entry Central.  It's billed as 'fast and flat' and we always have a great DRR turn out.  

Our Autumn Handicap - Thursday 7th September - is the same idea as the Spring Handicap - but the route is reversed. 

Club Half Marathon Championship - Male and female champions are the fastest DRR runners at the Glen Clova Half Marathon on Saturday 11th November.   Entry opens on Entry Central at 9pm on Monday 21st August and the event sells out very quickly, so set a reminder to make sure you get in.  Again, there is normally a large DRR contingent at this race and numerous PBs are set!

Santa Run - the last DRR race of the year is on Tuesday 12th December.  It's a fun team run and fancy dress is encouraged.

 

 

 

CLUB STANDARDS 2016

Congratulations to everyone who attained a club standard at the AGM last night. For the benefit of new members and those who were unable to attend the AGM last night, this is the second year the club has run its Club Standards programme. The target times are all based on British Athletics times; it is a real achievement to get one, as they are by no means entry-level standards. Full details on the website.

At our AGM last year we handed out 22 certificates for 2015. Last night, for 2016 we handed out 40!!

As a committee first and foremost we want everyone to enjoy their running and if you simply want to run for fun and a bit of exercise you will continue to receive as much encouragement as those members who want to aim for a club standard.

The following were presented with their certificates last night.

Santa Run 2016

 

Well done to everyone who took part in this year's Santa run! We had 12 teams out chasing down reindeer and medals tonight, with just 9 seconds between the winning teams!!

The post race entertainment was possibly as much fun as the race. Thanks to Ged and Dougie, and to Lee, Martin, Andrew and David who played for us. It was really great to have you guys playing!

Results are availble in the results section of the website.
