Update – May 2013

Update – Ayrshire Indoor Festival

The latest Running Bike Festival was held on May 12th, 2013, at Ayrshire Athletics Arena, Kilmarnock, with the support of students from the Sports Degree course at SRUC, Ayr. It was a great success, with 33 participants of different ages taking part. For almost one third of those it was their first chance to try out a Running Bike. In the morning, in addition to the Running Bike session, the students organised fun challenges as well as face painting and nails by Bella Mani. All these activities were greatly enjoyed by both RaceRunners and family members.

Unfortunately the weather prevented us from moving outdoors in the afternoon for our races, but that didn’t diminish the competitive spirit on display on the indoor track. A huge thank you goes to the students for all their hard work before the event and to them & all the volunteers for their enthusiasm on the day. Our thanks go as well to David & Andy from Quest88 for again supporting us and to the staff of Ayrshire Athletics Arena for their assistance both prior to the event and on the day.

Update – Come & Try – Edinburgh

On May 4th, 2013, the club supported a ‘Come & Try’ event at Meadowmill Sports Centre, Tranent, Edinburgh, which is the home of the Lothian Leopards Disability Athletics Club. It was hoped that this would be the first step towards the introduction of regular running bike activity there. Speaking to those who attended, most of whom have previously come to an Indoor Festival, they are very keen for this to happen. This could be the start of another RaceRunning opportunity in Scotland.
