Copyright 2021 - Dundee Roadrunners

Malcom Forbes

I joined Dundee Road Runners in 2006 and immediately realised what a mistake I had made in not joining earlier.  I had run, mainly for fitness, for many years but had been losing speed, and hoped that the decline could be halted by training with other runners. 


I was initially attracted by the web site, and the Clubís reputation for welcoming newcomers, regardless of their abilities.  I was particularly attracted to the Thursday night training programme, as it is difficult for an individual to do this as effectively alone.  I have noticed an improvement in running times and think I have progressed, in particular, from the Thursday sessions.  


The Club benefits greatly from the dedication of the coaches, Ged and Charlie, who turn up in all weathers and provide a varied and imaginative training programme.  The Club is also very well served by the Committee and Road Captain, in particular Gill, who keeps everyone up to date with the weekly e-mails.


Road running in Dundee is experiencing a renaissance, with the return of marathon and half marathon events to the city, and the Club has a very bright future.  I just regret not joining 25 years ago!
