OVERVIEW OF ACE RACERUNNING CLUB ACTIVITIES
Providing Locally, Supporting Nationally
The Club is totally run and conducted by volunteers.

LOCAL ACTIVITIES

– The Club provides recreational activity primarily based on the running bike The emphasis is on fun, interesting activities, seeing friends and individual improvement, with participants enjoying themselves whilst they gain exercise, improve/enhance their individual capabilities, grow in self confidence and social skills. Brothers and sisters of club members are welcome to join in, which they usually do.

– Monday nights We meet at Dam Park Stadium athletics track in Ayr during the better weather months (March – October).
COMPETITIONS
– The club is both for recreation and sport. On forming the club it was expected that about 50% of the members might like to compete in competitions. Currently its more like 80%. The children very much enjoy the supportive atmosphere of the SDS (Scottish Disability Sport) athletics events, are delighted at being able to participate in what is their sport and take great satisfaction in achieving PBs (Personal Bests).

– At club meetings we train and familiarise members for participation in RaceRunning events.

– For those competing in events, the club seeks to help facilitate participation through subsidising entries fees and providing assistance at events. There is a lot more we would like to do facilitate this activity.

– For information on event programmes and opportunities refer to RaceRunning Scotland’s web site www.rrscotland.org.
COME & TRY EVENTS/SESSIONS

– The club conducts or helps to conduct Come & Try Events/Sessions at different locations across the Scotland. With RaceRunning being a new recreation and sport activity in Scotland, the club is active in providing opportunities for children and adults to try a running bike.

– Anyone is welcome to come along to a club meeting to try or view a running bike. We just ask that you inform us prior to the night so we might ensure a suitable sized bike is available.

– The club on invitation conducts specific Come & Try Sessions, such as at a school or disability sports club.

RACERUNNING PROMOTION

– As demonstrated by the Come & Try activity above, the club feels as the first RaceRunning Club in Scotland it is very important that the club helps to promote RaceRunning. With more children and adults participating, our members will benefit through more social contact, experiences and competition.

– In conjunction with RaceRunning Scotland, club representatives support special events through giving a running bike demonstration or participating in the actual event.

– During the winter months, we usually organise an Indoor Festival to allow new & experienced RaceRunners to come together for a fun filled day.
