Change of venue

The Committee is pleased to announce that WDAC will be moving to a new location from 1st September 2014.

We will be permanently based at the Wrenn School, Doddington Road, Wellingborough, NN8 2JJ. (This is not the campus opposite Wellingborough School but on the right on Doddington Road as you go out of Wellingborough).

Our new venue provides ample parking, changing rooms and facilities for our juniors. There will also be a track marked out on the field for our use from April- October each year. 

We hope that you are as excited about the new move as we are- CLICK HERE to see a map of Wrenn School detailing the location of the parking with green dots (using the end gate nearest to the traffic lights on Doddington Road).

All Committee members and Coaches will be visiting Wrenn before the move and will be on hand to answer any questions /direct you as appropriate on 2/9.

Our first session at Wrenn will be on Tuesday 2 September 2014.Times of sessions remain unchanged.

Pre Welly 5 BBQ

For those that have not attended previously, every year the club arranges a 5 mile timed 'race' where all members and families are welcome to enjoy the Welly 5 mile route before BBQs are lit and burgers and beer enjoyed back at the sports ground.  The teams chosen by Natasha and Jon for the actual Welly 5 race will be marshaling this BBQ run.

This year's Pre Welly 5 BBQ will be held on Thursday 24th July at 7pm at The Old Grammarians, Wellingborough.  Please arrive from 6:30pm as it is tradition to take a club photo of all members with the banner before the run begins.  For all club members intending on running the event, please wear club vests and hi vis tabards for the run itself.

Please bring food for the BBQ and some money to spend at the bar.

As per previous years, Northants Road Runners are also invited to the evening.
