As well as weekly races, the club also has a very busy social calendar! Every year there is the pre-marathon meal, Christmas eve run at Irchester park and Christmas meal with awards.
Several other various events take place across the year, and Long Chatty Runs (LCRs) are informally organised several weekends in the build up to marathon season.
Last year's Welly Wobble event was such a success it's back again this year with hopes for another fantastic night!
As part of our club 20 year celebrations in 2012, runners from all six running groups ran between 20 different pubs during the evening of the bank holiday set aside for the Jubilee.
This year, Neil's first event as WDAC Social Secretary will take place in the form of Welly Wobble 2 on Saturday the 29th June 2013. Not only do we like to run, but we like to run to pubs! So if you are of the same mindset, make sure that you are a member of our Facebook group and click 'Attending' to the event Neil has added to the group. Details of the route and starting point to follow...
You might think you're good at running, but can you hit a ball?! Come join us for an informal evening of Rounders fun at Irchester Country Park on Thursday the 27th June. There will be NO formal running training on this evening as coaches will be competing too!
