DTFC One mile Time trial -2
1 Mile Time Trial - 2
Friday 22nd May - Monday 25th May
For ALL DTFC athletes and parents the next 1 mile time trial is over 4 days - starting Friday 22nd May. Over the 4 days run one mile and post the result here using a screenshot from Strava or Garmin. A FaceBook post will be created to allow athletes to post their times. This is open to all DTFC athletes and parents, not just those who may favour endurance. With no competitions likely for quite some time this is a great way to get a bit of focus on something mildly competitive. For those that did the first one lets see if you can improve on your time!
The mile should comprise a safe route, preferably without crossing any roads or junctions, younger runners should be accompanied by an adult (running or on a bike) or done in a location where the runner can do it on their own but be closely supervised. There is no restriction on the size of loop to make up the mile but please don't run it all downhill.
Please remember this is a bit of fun - enjoy!

Coronavirus update- Training suspended
CLUB TRAINING – SUSPENDED TILL FURTHER NOTICE.
Due to the announcements this evening by the Scottish & Uk Governments it is with regret that the club will have to suspend regular Mon & Wed training until further notice.
U11. U13 & U15 Groups – Training cancelled with immediate effect until further notice.
VICKY Group , JULIET Group, STEVEN endurance Group – Training will be on an ad-hoc basis with any co-ordination & training plans through the team-app chat / email / text .
As long as the centre remains open – athletes will be able to train on an individual basis if they wish, being mindful of govt advice at the time.
If as expected, the centre shuts in the weeks ahead , It may also be possible for athletes to retain fitness by running or cycling in their local area on an individual basis or to a plan set out by your coaches.
CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS – CANCELLED
Unfortunately the club championships scheduled for Sat 4th of April has also had to be cancelled . Full refunds of entry money will be given in due course.
It seems unlikely that any athletic events will proceed in the next few months and the club will keep you updated of any developments. Hopefully we may get some competition later in the summer.
All of us that are involved in the club are gutted at these developments but we must bear in mind they are for the safety of all involved, with this virus being a life or death issue for many in the athletics community that help out in all aspects of the sport.
So please be mindful of others in your community and be safe in any training that you may do yourselves and we will keep everyone posted when things can get up and running again
