We are a friendly club based in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. No matter what your aims or goals are, whether it is for keeping fit, losing weight, joining in our social groups or running to be competitive, we can help! Training sessions are held on Tuesday and Thursday nights at 6.30 at Wrenn School, Doddington Road, Wellingborough, NN8 2JJ.

Nominations for the Club Charity 2015

Each year the club nominates one charity to raise money for. This is usually a local charity or local branch of a national charity.
The charity for 2015 will need to be proposed by a WDAC member and a reason give for why you think it deserves to be our charity for 2015. This years charity is National Deaf Children's Society.
Nominations to Steph by the start of December please and the Committee will decide at the next meeting.

VLM Ballot

The Ballot for the WDAC places in the Virgin London Marathon will be held on Thursday 20 November 2014 at 6.25pm just before training.


There are 4 places up for grabs. We will also draw one reserve.
If you have handed your slip in to Steph, please check to confirm you have the correct number of entries here:- http://www.wdac.org.uk/london_places.htm
You have been allocated one entry for your rejection slip, one if you marshalled the Welly 5 or ran one NRRL race and one entry if you ran 5 or more NRRL races. If you have any queries on the number of entries you have been allocated, you need to let Steph know by the end of this week.
If you have any questions regarding the process, please also drop an email to Steph.

Runner's Runner of the Year 2014

With the Christmas presentation evening fast approaching, it is time for us as members to begin voting for our male and female club runner of the year.
For those who are new to the club, or anybody that has not voted before, this is not an award that necessarily goes to the fastest runners, but a chance for all club members to vote for someone who they think is inspiring, encouraging, supportive, has improved a great deal, has been a valuable team member, or is simply a fantastic runner. The award is not a popularity contest and is really a chance to honour a male and female member of the club for their hard work and effort.
For anyone struggling, feel free to check out the videos from last year here.

Voting will end on Friday 5th December to allow the committee to have the relevant trophies engraved.

Any questions, please feel free to give Steph a shout.
You can cast your vote on the online form, happy voting!

Halloween Run 2014

Halloween Run

There will be no club at the school on Thursday 30th October but instead we will be based at the Quarryman's Cafe in Irchester Country Park.
There we will have a mixed group club night to run the 'scary park in the dark!'

So - high viz and head torches are essential items, plus any other form of illumination you see fit!

There will be no parking charges and the cafe car park (bottom of the hill in the park itself) will be open for our use (please car share if possible though). The cafe will be open late to serve hot food and drinks (plus alcohol is you fancy!) - this can be purchased over the counter on the night.

"Watch out on the run though as there might be a few surprises in store on the way?!?!?!?!"

Meet at Homebase

On Thursday 23 October 2014 we will not be meeting at Wrenn School as they have a Parents Evening.

Instead, we will meet at the Homebase car park at the usual time. There is no limit on car parking here and for those who don’t know it, it is on Turnells Mill Lane (next to Tesco).

There will be no groups meeting at Wrenn School on 23/10 so please do not go to the school.

We will let you know the week before at shout outs so you don’t forget!
