"What is it?"

The Down N UP is the event all of your training for the whole year has been focused on. 10Ks ..pah! 800m .. no chance! Marathon, are you having a laugh. This event is the pinnacle of athletic excellence. If you haven't competed before, here is your chance to get the your athletic palmares completed. Think getting that last sticker for your 1990 World Cup Panini album, only this will trump it by a mile!

"So seriously - what is it?

Simples. You run downhill for approximately 900m as fast as you can, you then get a wee breather have a chat with your competitors then you run back up even faster. There are prizes for both legs, the whole thing and many more. This is a fun and social event.

"OK you got me, how much is it?"

Are you a club member? Yes? Well then you have won a bloomin' watch, it is free! If not £1 which goes towards the mega prize haul.

"I still have no idea what this is all about, but I am intrigued what else is in it for me?"

OK, OK i need to give you the really hard sell. After we have ran down then up the (I suggest you wear off road shoes, but road shoes will be fine) course we will be heading back to 2e Caroline Terrace where there will be tea, coffee and a wee snack laid on for all. Plus of course the prizegiving.

Its great.

You should come. 

Anything else?

  1. You need to be at least 1 years old to take part. 
  2. You need to let me know you will be there by clicking SignUp below or by emailing me chris@caac.org.uk or by saying to me in person or indeed Mr Moray Anderson who is much better at turning up at training than me!
  3. Theme for this year? Masks! We are having our very own masquerade - bests masks definitely win a prize if not all the prizes.

World Athletics Champs in London - tickets available

Hi all,

I have a couple of tickets for the morning session of Sunday 6th August for the World Athletics Championships in London that I'm not planning on using.

If you, or anyone you know, happens to be about and interested then it would be good to see them used.

Face value they are £35 each. However, as of last night, tickets were still available for the session, so I'm happy to accept nearest offers. I'll be at training on Tuesday and Thursday so could hand them over then.
