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

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