Our next monthly training session will take place in Perth on Wednesday 7 November, with two options for start times. 

Our monthly sessions provide an opportunity for club members and potential members to meet and train together to develop skills and fitness. Activities will vary from month to month but will typically last for an hour and will include a range of simple activities that will be flexible so as to suit all ages, levels of experience and fitness. Please note: these sessions are not coaching per se and children attending will need to remain under the close supervision of their parent or carer.

This month's session will be in the Muirton area - NOT at Bell's Sports Centre where we'll be working on map reading on the run whilst using a compass, and relocation. You have the option of coming for 4.30pm if you want to run in daylight or later at 6.30pm. If coming later you might want to arrange to run with a partner or in a small group. More details to follow or from Bill Melville, Organiser billmelville @ogoroad.  com (remove spaces).

Safety and Risk

A comprehensive risk assessment will have been carried out by the organiser, but participants take part at their own risk and are responsible for their own safety during the event.

Keep It Clean campaign - Forestry Commission Scotland

Our forests are at risk from tree pests and diseases. These can dramatically affect the health of our trees, upsetting the delicate ecosystem balance and devastating large areas of woodland.
Pests and diseases hitch a ride in mud and debris on shoes, paws and tyres, ending up in new forests. Here, they can spread rapidly in environments with no natural resilience.
