21st May 2017
The Raby Castle Races will be held on Sunday 21st May 2017. A new 3k race will be included to cover the 8yrs to 11yrs old athletes.
For anyone who hasn't entered these races before, the course is around the beautiful parkland surrounding Raby Castle nr Staindrop. It is mostly on good tarmac road but there is a short good quality stretch of woodland trail, which unfortunately makes it unsuitable for wheelchair athletes.
1.2k - 8yrs old and under, 3k fun run 11yrs old and under, 5k fun run 11yrs old and upwards and 10k race 16yrs and upwards. Medals will be issued to finishers in all three races.
*** Raby Castle 10k Paper Entry Forms 21st May 2017 Will be available soon ***
Couch to 5k
Our new couch to 5k program has started on Thursday 2nd February.
Cost of the whole course is £24. This includes free entry into the Raby Castle 5k (21st May 2017) and a years membership (including affiliation to England Athletics).
We are meeting at Teesdale sports centre at 6pm. (It would be appreciated if on the first night you can arrive early to allow time to complete the initial admin paperwork).
We are looking forward to meeting you all. Very excited to get started.
Previous graduate from the couch to 5k quote.
"I joined the Teesdale Athletic Club in September 2015 when I took part in the couch to 5k group with the aim to becoming fitter. I have continued to attend the club and taken part in some 10k races including one in Edinburgh. I enjoy going to the club sessions as I find everyone friendly and supportive, and I feel it has really improved my fitness"
