This Summer saw athletes enjoying their first full post-pandemic T&F season. No masks, no sanitising, no distancing. Normal service resumed. Pity any Minister for Health who tried to bring those restrictions back for fear that we might all get the monkey pox! We are generally a law-abiding and placid-natured people. Push us too far and one might just re-ignite the spirit of ’98!
See Fixtures page for updates on events.

Healthy Mind, Healthy Body
We take the development and promotion of athletics very seriously in these parts. That’s why we have one of the most dynamic athletics communities in the country.
We also pay attention to the big health and social benefits which athletics brings. “Mens sana in corpore sano” as the Romans say! And the good news is that you are never to old, or too young, to start. If you are new to athletics you will find details of the club nearest to you under ‘Clubs’.
Running really is good for you! We spotted an article entitled 10 Mental Health Benefits of Running on Competitor Running (online).
“Run when you can, walk if you have to, crawl if you must; just never give up.” Dean Karnazes
