Training info for 2016 to be updated soon!


2012JOlympics01We do fun games and activities based around running and running technique. The group is normally split into two or three smaller groups and they rotate around different activities. Parents may be asked to assist in a session.

Bude RATs takes the safety and well-being of all its runners very seriously. With this in mind, any children who are 14 years of age and wish to train with the adult groups should seek approval from the club committee.

Only children (14 yrs +) considered to have the appropriate level of maturity and running ability as well as a nominated adult (parent/carer to run with them and look after them if required) will be approved by the club committee to run with the adult groups.

2012juniorhash01Requests for such approval can be made via either the junior coaches or any committee member, and they will pass it on to the committee.

Anyone over the age of 16 can join an adult group but should speak with a run leader first to ensure that they begin on the correct night in the correct group.

Well done to all the Junior Rats who ran in the final North Devon Cross Country League race yesterday at West Buckland.

Special congratulations to all who got a medal for completing at least 3 races. Extra special congratulations to our Under 9 Girls who came 2nd overall in the League, led home by 2nd placed finisher overall Ella Henry Brock. Ably backed up by Maddie Old, Sophie Shute and Mitzi Irish. Great running girls.

And a big whoop for Georgia Higham who finished an excellent 2nd overall in the Under 15 Girls.

Looks like the boys have got some catching up to do next year!!          Dave
