The sky’s the limit SW “Are there sufficient superlatives to describe Steve Way’s achievement in the London Marathon on Sunday 13 April 2014?” His PB of resulted in a finish in 15th position overall (1st of the ‘non-elite’ runners), 3rd Briton (after Mo Farah and Chris Thompson) and a qualifying time for the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow later this year.

The sky’s the limit TD In 1997 she set a British U13 age best with 3:00.1 for 1000m in 1997, when she also ran the second best ever for 1500m with 4:39.3. In 2002 still with three more season’s in junior ranks, she elected to go to the Commonwealth Games rather than the World Junior Championships. Charlotte ran sensationally well in Manchester, improving her 800m best from the 2:02.39, and coming 4th in the trials, and then running a British Junior record of 2:00.95 in the semi-final, and improving this to 1:59.75 for 6th in the final.

BAC – the Future DR Club has a great history – now we need to look to the future What kind of club do we want – large, small, stable, growing, dynamic, innovative….? What facilities do we want? What levels do we want to compete at? What are our key values and policies? What do we want to look like in 5, 10, 20 years from now?
BAC - A Planned Future DR Members, users, and a range of other stakeholders will determine the club’s future… …..but this has to be planned, rather than left to chance. Right now we’re working on a strategic plan that will signal the direction the club is moving in, and how it will be structured, organised, managed and led. Join us – and help plan this future!
