Change of Venue for Winter running – 1st October 2013

This year we will begin our winter running series on Tuesday 1st October. Please meet at 6.30pm at the Banchory Sports Centre which is situated at the Academy on Raemoir Road, AB31 5UJ.

The different routes, 5km. 6km, 8km and 10km are described on the training page where you can find links to the individual route maps. We will meet at the Sports Centre every Tuesday and Thursday evening at 6.30pm until the clocks change forward in March.

Club Run Tuesday 24 September 2013

Heavy cloud and later, a light rain did not deter the ten of us; Jack, Steve, Gordon, Mark, Dave, Lesley, Bill, Nick, Paul and Rick. A pleasant run on an evening that could not be described as cold – but then it wasn’t warm either! Perfect for running in fact. It was dark in the woodland and everybody present agreed it was time to move under the street-lighting sooner rather than later, before somebody twisted an ankle or something worse.

Notice of a General Meeting

There’s a general meeting after the run next Tuesday. All are welcome. Please gather in the cocktail bar of the Douglas Arms Hotel, 22 High Street, Banchory AB31 5SR at 8pm on Tuesday 24. The purpose of the meeting is to talk about various ideas concerning the activities of the club in the near future. A full agenda will be posted by the weekend. Meantime please submit any items you would like to be included by emailing these to the secretary on or by leaving a comment on this website. (see icon in top right corner of this message)

You can come as you are, nip home for a shower or use the facilities at the Banchory Sports Centre to wash and change, for a nominal fee.
