Ašais runners went went for the first time to the city of Klaipeda to compete in an international athletics competition for youngsters. Latvia's and Lithuania's strongest athletes had come to compete in their respective age groups. An astonishing number of runners in our distances - 30 on average! On the first race day to the start line went Renāte Beļājeva (U16) and Kārlis Dieviņš (U18) to test their limits in the 600m distance. Renāte, in a very cutthroat competition of 35 girls, got 4th place. To bronze medal only -1,5 seconds! Kārlis' return in the world of athletics after ankle fracture and 6 month long "empty" period resulted in a new PR, but still with a humble place in the leaderboard.
It's a tradition for youngsters all around Vidzeme to test their abilities in Limbažu olimpic center. Competition for many types of athletic disciplines. At noon of November 23rd Ašais athletes of age groups U14 and U16 arrived at Limbažu OC. For variety, our athletes, especially of U16 age group, tried sprint. However let's start with the achievements of U14! Excellently his fall/winter cycle has started Ričards Špacs, winning the 600m race, but in the 60m sprint being 2nd. In U14 age group for girls, Tīna Briša gets silver in 600m. Roberts Cercins in U14 age group 5th in 600m distance. Next is U16, although our beloved distance is 800m, Roberts Glazers and Renāte Beļājeva tried 200m sprint. They did it very well! Both of them have got split 4th-5th place. Also new PR for Roberts! Both have a new PR in 60m. p.s Tīna's medal is the 100th this season and Ričards' is 101st! Photos - here!

Everyone has their own way of celebrating holidays. Some need fireworks, others need holiday meal. This our third time celebrating November 18th by participating in the Līvenhofas run. This year in a bit smaller composition, without the older runners. Middle and youngest generation fought for medals in the 1500m through the streets of Līvāni. Excellently Roberts Glazers reached his goal,
Fresh news from Rihards Serģis, that cross country season has ended in the USA. As Rihards writes, NJCAA Nationals for boys 8th place, for girls 21st place. 50 teams from the whole USA. The best runner from Colby got 2nd place and the next was 10th. Track was very difficult and hilly, they ran even across golf fields. Vast amounts of runners and supporters. Rihards had never seen so many runners! Now Rihards will enojoy a little pause and then indoor season will start!
Ašais athletes have had the opportunity to train for winter season 2019,
like never before! Thanks to a very good money printer :D, already in
November our runners can regularly travel neigbhouring country.
Happiness through tears, because soon Latvia will be indepented for 30
years and still will have 0 good running maneges. At the same time,
Estonia has 3 maneges in a 80 km diameter. Our runners enhance their
athletic abilities in two of these maneges - Valga's and Vōru. We are
very happy that we are able to use these high quality maneges! The first
competitions slowly are approaching.
2018 is rapidly coming to an end. We have recieved good news from Latvian Athletics union. Three of our runners have been added to the National team candidate list! In U20 junior group as 4th in 800m - Artis Rožkalns! In U16 age group as 1st in 1500m and 2nd in 800m - Roberts Aleksis Glazers! Also is the same age group Renāte Beļājeva 2nd for 400m sprint! What else to say? An interesting season awaits us!
Cold weather being
more often and the sky being grey and not blue means autumn is
here, but that definitely isn't a bad thing, because autumn is the
time when we pack our bags look forward going on a ferry that takes
us to..., that's right once again Ašais visited the beautiful &
magical island - Saaremaa. Like every year, fall comes, and so does
SAAREMAA 3 PÄEVA JOOKS. This is our 6th year competing is this
event and we are already waiting for the next years' competition.
Every year is different in some way and we haven't become bored of
it. Part of the beauty is in the fact, that it's a rally, because
results from each day are added together and that total time from
all 3 days is yout end result. This year in the youth race
participated a record amount of competitors - 210!
2018. /2019. season is the 11th season of SC Ašais! On 12th December we will be celebrating club's 10 year birthday! What is sports club AŠAIS? It is one big sports family with many different personalities, but it is believed to have one big collective and personal goal - to be better both in sport and in life. And the pursuit of the great goals is one that brings us together everyday - in training sessions, races, jokes, laughs and all the good things that happen to us!
