The Duchy Athletics Network (DAN) has been formed to amalgamate existing strengths and coordinate plans to release potential and nurture talent. The clubs involved have already shown a willingness and ability to build links with schools and each other and to consistently increase membership.
The Network has strong foundations in its committed clubs and winning athletes, from juniors to veterans, competing in Cross Country, Track and Field, Fell Running, Triathlons and Road Running.
As a remote, rural region, Cornwall suffers from lower than average GDP and higher travel costs than most other regions and sporting communities.
DAN has put together the following action plan; sharing a desire for local athletes and athletics to receive every opportunity possible and to inspire and enthuse our communities, schools, local partners, other regions and to add value to individuals personal development and therefore growing, sustaining and excelling participation in athletics in the whole county.
