Off Road / Trail


Hi there,

As we are nearly at the end of the cross country apart from the Nationals I thought it would be a good idea to think a bit further on leading up to the road race season in Spring / Summer.

Gartmorn 6 on 11th March --- this is a 6 mile trail race up through some muddy woods onto the reservoir path, loop around the reservoir and back through the woods.  Can be tough if muddy. Great food after in the village hall.

Signup: down N UP, Saturday 23 December 9:00AM 2017

"When is it?"

Saturday 23 December 2017 at 9:00AM for a 9:15AM START

"Where is it?"

Meet at the car park at the top of Kaimes Road by 9AM for registration, It will be manned from 8:45AM at latest

"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 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.

Blairaddam Badass Trail Race

I noticed this race and as it had a nice picture in the advert I thought I might as well enter it. Then I decided to let some of my FB friends know and before I knew it we had a big CAAC contingent down for this race.
