Every couple of years Bicester AC holds a Family Day for its members and their families. On the 17th  of July we held our latest one. The idea of the event is for BAC athletes and their families to socialise with the BAC coaches / team managers away from the stresses of competition and training whilst taking part in some athletics based fun events, followed by a BBQ.

The event started with a mass warm up.

After the warm up everyone was split up into five teams. They then participated in five fun events in their teams. Four of the events give the parents a chance to experience what their children do at training and in competition.

 

The events were:

 

75m sprint

 

Soft hammer throw
