SCRATCH CLUB 2017
JOIN US FROM 29 AUGUST TO 2 NOVEMBER 2017 FOR OUR ANNUAL SCRATCH CLUB
This is an annual event organised by Chiltern Athletic Club at the beginning of spring. The club is open to the community to encourage all shapes, sizes and fitness levels to embrace running as a sport. People come every Tuesday and Thursday evening for a period of two months. There is no cost involved.
The goal for these individuals is to encourage them to start with 2kms and build up to a distance of 8kms. We have had, on several occasions, people who have started Scratch Club and the run the Comrades Marathon the following year. This event also kick starts runners after their winter lay off, and is ideal for those returning to running after injury.
During this time the “Scratchers” also come to enjoy the club, its members and facilities. Generally we have an attendance in the region of 100 people in the first few weeks. We are pleased that this platform affords us the opportunity to involve families, as many children join in with their parents. Chiltern prides itself in being a very friendly and social club.
