Road & Country

Right from the start ABAC recognised that the interests of its predominantly road and cross country club members were very different from the Track and Field clubs. A working party was established which led to the incorporation of ARC (The Association of Running Clubs) in Jan 2007. ARC was set up as a Governing body for extra stadia clubs and insures its members and permits races organised by member clubs and Associated bodies. Because of its low overheads it has enabled member clubs to receive most of the entry fees from permitted races. As a result of its initiatives ARC has driven down the cost of organising extra stadia events and continues to attract an ever increasing membership.

The articles in this section relate to the initial set up of ARC and lists update reports on road running and cross country matters.
