Barcelona Half Marathon
PBs all around in February’s Barcelona half marathon for AAAC members, Eloi Gispert, John Bromley, and Mike Kilbride!


London Marathon
Aberdeen AAC is typically allocated two or three places for the London Marathon each year.  The club committee accepts requests from AAAC members for these places in November and awards the places at the December committee meeting.  Preference is generally given to members who regularly compete and/or volunteer for the club.  Contact Alan Dick for further details or to make a request for a place.

For 2019, the places will be filled by Paul Kelly and Bill Lonsdale.

London Fundraising
From AAAC member, Elspeth Aspinall:

This year I’m running a London Marathon with a difference. I will be along side my dear friend, Ali who was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour just over a year ago. I am supporting her to raise funds for Brain Research Charity, Meningitis Now and Get Kids Going Charity.
Although her future is uncertain to say the least, she is fighting hard, and running is one of her main coping strategies. She is also planning various running events, like London, to keep living for. She says that running “makes me feel alive.”
She’s an amazing lady and a true inspiration. If you would be able to support her by donating via this JustGiving link, it would be so so so appreciated.
