Why do we want to have these championships?

To encourage club members to enter some events where they know there will be other F&C AC members there to encourage them/run with them

• To run an event when you are part of a team
• To add some purpose to your regular training
• To show the local running world who we are and what we do
• To support other clubs who host events like they support our 1/2M and 10km races
• Most importantly have some fun doing them

You can view the list of road races HERE and the trail races HERE.

Please note that at the time of posting some dates are To Be Announced / Confirmed (TBA / C)
