CAAC Ceilidh Fri 13th Jan 2017

CAAC Ceilidh 2017
Hi everyone, Just a wee heads up for the CAAC festive season ceilidh at the Bainfeild bowling club, Chesser. I now have the tickets in my possession and will have them with me every training night (Tue/Thu) at the school.They are £5. It's a bargain, all we ask is that you bring a plate of food for the buffet and a prize for the raffle. This is a great social get together for runners, partners, family, friends and parents of the younger runners. Numbers were quite low last time, so let's make this a night to remember and dust off these dancing shoes. C U soon. Thanks. The Dashing White Runner

No London Marathon Places

Unfortunately we have not obtained places for the London Marathon this year. We deeply regret this situation, and despite our appeals the organisers are unwilling to make an exception due to the administrative error. We will ensure that this does not occur for the 2018 race.

Signup: Down'N'Up. Saturday 24 December 2016

"When is it?"

Saturday 24 December 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 (with added fun this year).

"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? Long socks, calf warmers, elbow pads and headbands. Day-glo for bonus points!

Peebles Christmas Run

Hi Guys, Gillian and I would like to invite members down for a Christmas run on the hills and trails around Peebles/Innerleithen on Sunday 18th December. Plan is to meet at our place for 10am, then head off into the hills about 10:30. Course is to be confirmed but there will be a few options depending on the weather and group. Should be around 6-8 miles but will be at a fairly "social" pace. Post race soup and cakes back at our house. To get an idea of numbers please let myself or Gillian know if you want to come (so Gillian can bake enough cakes).
