Winter Schedule

Through the Winter months (1 Nov 2013 to 30 March 2014) no regular club weekly sessions will be held at either of our club locations of Dam Park Stadium (Ayr) or the Ayrshire Athletics Arena (Kilmarnock). There are no indoor track facilities at Dam Park. There is an indoor track at the Ayrshire Athletics Arena (AAA) and the club had been planning utilise this indoor facility to hold a weekly winter session open to all members. However, the AAA facility cannot currently be heated and we learnt last year that this lack of heating results in the facility being too cold for our members to use. We do hope that in the not too distance future a solution can be implemented to enable the AAA to be heated and at that point we will be able to provide winter club sessions. Other indoor halls, such as Carrick Academy which we have used in past years, are now too small for us to safely use with our increased membership.

However, no weekly winter club sessions does not mean you have to stop all running bike activity through the winter. The AAA have kindly agreed to allow us to store club running bikes at their facility through the winter. On presenting your ACE club membership card to AAA staff, the bike allocated to you will be unlocked and you can use the bike in the AAA facility. The use of the bike will be your responsibility, at your risk and there will be no ACE or AAA supervision provided. The club will be allocated some club funds to cover AAA facility fees for individual use of through the Winter. On the unlikely situation that these funds have been used, you will need to pay an individual use facility fee to AAA  which is approximately £3 per hour.

If you would like to have the option of using a club running bike through the Winter at AAA, please contact Margaret.
