Welcome to Calne SMaRTT

 

Calne SMaRTT is a young but fast growing Running and Triathlon club and we think it's the most friendly and welcoming in the area. Our members are of all ages and a wide range of abilities so whether you're an experienced runner or you've just starting out and want to meet people of the same level, then you'll be in great company for training - there's also the odd social event to look forward to.

 


Club Championships - Running

Once again the focus of this years championship races is variety and to support local club run races.  The aim is to have as many of the club runners turn up to the events and show Calne SMaRTT as an enthusiastic and active club.

Wiltshire Road Race League

February sees the start of the 2014 Wiltshire Road Race League. Following victories in both the Men’s and Ladies tables in the inaugural Wiltshire Road Race League by Avon Valley Runners, the new season will see the Ladies competing alongside the Men with the scores achieved by both sexes contributing to a clubs points tally, as the League is split into two divisions with Calne SMaRTT A in the first Division and our B Team in Division 2. The club encourages any of our members who want to run additional races to the Championship races to consider these as good races which also earn points for the club. Full details of the league races and teams are here.

Running Health & Safety

As you may have seen in the press, there have been some recent incidents where local runners have been taken ill during training.  REMEMBER - if you feel ill when training or competing then stop and seek help and advice. Better to be well for the next race than face a long lay-off pushing by the extra mile or few seconds.  In addition always carry identification whilst training by yourself.  Jimmy Connor has designed a great looking and inexpensive  'ICEID' tag which can be attached to your running shoes or bag. If you would like to find out more please talk to him at one of the training sessions.

Running Safety - Personal Stereos & Lights

At recent races competitors have been disqualified for wearing personal stereos during the run. It most definitely effects your ability to hear traffic and so can be extremely dangerous whilst out on the roads. It's also antisocial when in a group. If you feel you have to have tunes to run to then use one earpiece only or buy sports earpieces which allow outside noise to be heard as well (somehow!). Remember for Tri events it is instant disqualification to use phones, personal stereos or other devices at any time in the event.

During the dark months be seen - wear reflective jackets/bibs hats etc or better still get a small clip on cycle light which shows up a long way and will not affect your performance.
