Vets League Track & Field Meeting 14th June 

A team of 9 RPAC members took to the track at the Weir Archer Centre in Kingston on Monday, in the first Vets League fixture for 2021. Covid restrictions meant that the event had a different look this season. Despite the long lay off from track competition there were some sparkling results from our athletes. For full details of the event see here


Couch to 5K "Graduation" 10th July

Our Couch to 5k group has made really excellent progress and have less than three weeks until their "graduation". With the return of Parkrun being delayed we now plan to run three 1 mile laps in  Priory Park at 09:00 on Saturday 10th July.

It would be great if we could get a strong turnout of club members to run with the group to help support them and celebrate their achievement.
