Welcome to Dumbarton Amature Athletic Club
We at DAAC would like to send an open invite to all runners within the local area to come along to one of our training sessions.
I can say that before they joined, most members of our club have all been in the position that you are in now. Whether you want to improve your running or just want to get fitter, we have all seen members of DAAC out training and thought to ourselves that they were either too fast for me, I wouldn’t be able to keep up as I would be the slowest, I feel intimidated, I’ve never ran in a group before and I’m not sure if I will fit in. All I can say is come along and try us out!
DAAC is a friendly sociable club who like to get together not just for training but also for a good drink and a laugh! Our social committee organise 3 main social events each year as well as some adhoc events. Our main social events are:
Annual Summer Day Out: This typically takes place on the last Saturday in June and is usually some sort of activity during the day (voted on by members) followed by a meal, club prizegiving and plenty of laughs. The full day and night is partially financially subsidised by the club, with a small cost to members (typically £20/person)
Lochaber half marathon: Usually first Sunday in November. The club enjoy going to Fort William for the day to take part in Eddie’s half marathon, organised by Lochaber AAC. For all members running the race, as well as those just wishing to come and watch for a day out, the club organises return bus transport and an evening meal in Fort William. The club partially subsidises the cost of the bus transport to this event. Typical cost to members £25 (+race entry fee)
Christmas Night Out: Usually the second Saturday night in December. Our Christmas party night usually takes place at the Abbotsford Hotel in Dumbarton with a DJ, some (very bad!) karaoke, a buffet and lots of dancing. Bring your dancing shoes, your friends, partners, family. The cost of this is financially subsidised by the club with cost to members (and their friends/family) being typically £5/person.
Hope to see you at the next event! 🙂
Annual General Meeting
The club AGM is held at the end of the summer season each year – usually beginning of October. An agenda is circulated beforehand. All members are encouraged to attend to feedback to the committee, vote on office bearers, events and have their say in the club.
