COVID-19 - UPDATE - April 3rd 2020

Hello Fellow Doddlers

Since our last email to you all the UK has entered lockdown and all athletic events have been cancelled until at least the 31st May and in all probability later. Sadly this has lead to the postponement of the North Dorset Village Marathon until the Autumn and the cancellation of the Wessex Ridgeway Relay. In the meanwhile we have paused entries for the Stur Half in August until such time as things become clearer.

Club membership is now due for renewal, whilst we appreciate that this may not be the highest priority on your list but we would love you to sign up and remain a part of the Doddler family.

There are many Doddlers working within the health community as Doctors, Nurses, First responders, Carers and no doubt in further roles of which we are not aware, we thank you all for your professionalism and dedication in these trying times, safe safe folks.

In the meanwhile running solo remains an option for us all, why not join the Doddler Strava page and post your runs to help motivate us all get out there and stay fit.

Stay safe and keep solo Doddling, we will see you all once life returns to normal

Dave Jackson (Chairman)

A bit about us…

The Dorset Doddlers have been running around in circles since 1983. The club was originally formed by a small group of runners who had just completed their first London Marathon and now has well over 100 members.

It feels great to be part of a club… There are many benefits to joining the Doddlers, including reduced race entry fees and discounts at many of the local sports shops. Also you will have a whole new bunch of friends to go running with!

Come and join us, our main training is on Thursday nights from SturFit Leisure Centre

We also meet in Shaftesbury or Blandford Forum on a Tuesday night for our winter training

From April to September we explore different parts of Dorset – come and run with us on our Summer Runs – all welcome, walkers and dogs too
