The 2018 edition of the MTR will take place on Saturday 8th September, and with just over 2 weeks to go, this is an urgent request for volunteers. 

As with previous CAAC events, it is hoped that as many of our members as possible will actually run the race, but the positions noted below are the minimum required for the race to proceed safely, so I would urge you to add your name to the list.

"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.

  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.
