First Aid Course

2 Day Outdoor First Aid Course. 5/6th February.

Fri 26 Nov

The club has to provide First Aid cover at all Regional and larger events and needs members to regularly volunteer to provide that cover.

With that in mind we have organised a 2 Day Course which will be run by Chris Leuleux giving a qualification of ITC level 3 award in Outdoor First Aid with SQA accreditation. The course will run 5th/6th February 9am to 6 pm on University campus in the Edge Sports Centre.

The course (which is normally £75) is Free for those attending on the basis that once qualified participants can take turns to regularly fill the First Aider role at events.

There are currently 5 of 12 places remaining. If this is of interest please let David Williams know

If the full 2 day course is too much of a commitment we will also shortly be organising an Introductory First Aider Course to be given by Will Patterson. Again it will be free and held at Leeds University one evening from 18:30 and will last circa 3 hours the date will be confirmed shortly. Again if interested please let David know.

AIRE places 5th in CompassSport Cup Final

Thu 21 Oct

Thanks to everybody who represented AIRE in the final at Tankersley, Hesley and Parkin Woods on Sunday. We had a really good turnout of 59 runners on the day with representation across all the age classes from the 12s to the 80s. The team gamely tackled courses in the wooded post-industrial landscape; some with great aplomb, some with exasperation in places (more the latter for me!).

In a field of 10 very competitive clubs we finished 5th, just 4 points off 4th position. Full results are:


South Yorkshire



Forth Valley



West Cumberland



Octavian Droobers (Coventry)



You know who



South London



Derwent Valley









Edinburgh Southern
