Ašais athletes rewrite the history of the Saaremaa race
In the three intense race days spent with 200 more estonian athletes, Ašais athletes to do historical feat, thereby rewriting the history of the event. Firstly, it was the unbelievable run for Roberts Glazers. The Aim for Roberts was to correct the 11 year old record in the P14 age group. Before the race it was clear, that it will be no easy feat, because the bar was set very high. We are truly happy to announce that the summative result Roberts presented within the three race days, was not only a new record in P14 age group, but also the all time fastest result in this distance. This had been the 21st youth race. Thus Roberts has reached a new height. He now holds the record for youth distance in P6/P11/P14 age groups! Not only that, but he is also faster than the record of P16 age group! Next year Roberts will be in P16. His result in each race day - 2km=6:07/ 3,24km=10:11/ 3,2km=10:07!!! On top of all this, the total time among all three days is 26:26... Roberts birthday is on the 26th date. Another beautiful performance demonstrated Stella Paltiņa. Her pace had been so great, that she can now claim two titles - All time fastest time in T11 age group and the unofficial Queen title also in the T14 age group!!!! If last year Stella didn't have the power to last all three race days, then now her rivals stand no chance!
Masterclass with Cesis running ensemble
Without a doubt it is clear, that motion is life. Beautiful motion is the highest aesthetic, which God has created. On thursdays' evening, SC Ašais met with running enthusiasts in the Cesis stadium to give an insight to fast running. Evening activities began with special excersises and cocluded with swedish relays. We are happy that TRX Cesis group joined the #NoskrienCēsis family. Double happiness, because the bad weather didn't discourage the motion lovers!
Once again SC Ašais celebrates fall with "Smiltenes laps"!
SC Ašais have been competing in "Smiltenes laps" for many years now, and fall wouldn't be imaginable without this established race. This year, racing passed with flying colours! Roberts Glazers had an excellent start in the 2 lap race, with an absolute victory and the fastest time of this distance in the history of the competition!!! The 6,5 km were done with an astounding result of 23:13! Average pace 3:35/km! Ašais runners secured 3 more victories in the 1 lap race. Stella Paltiņa dominated her age group with the fastest result from ALL girls! Likewise victorious were Renāte Beļājeva and Teodors Godiņš! Furthermore, Teodors had his first pedestal as an Ašais athlete. Congratulations! Second in their age groups were Ričards Špacs and Elza Niklase, third in his age group was Roberts Cercins. Teams' youngest, Annija Cercina, ended up 4th in her age group, but Luīze Rajecka and Egija Mihailova 5th and 6th respectively! Thanks you Smiltene! We will return! Photos - here!
Ašais demonstrate how it is done in Fall cross
Thank God - Fall cross
was able to happen! Thus Ašais runners too took a part in Cesis
region fall cross. Furthermore, the track was selected by our own

athletics by winning 6 medals, 5 of them being absolute victories!
First to set off was Stella Paltiņa with an excellent performance!
Stella not only had the quickest stride in her own age group and
primary school group, but also in highschool group of the 1km

The most compelling start in the school championship came about to none other than Roberts Glazers, who managed to outrun his strongest opponent Lauris Grīniņš, therefore winning 3rd stage both in his age group and overall! Furthermore, Roberts had the fastest time from all "squirrel" distance runners! Which means that Roberts will have to run full force in the last stage in order to be the absolute winner overall. Overall and in U14 age group among girls, Stella Paltiņa 2nd, who managed to outrun, till now undefeated, estere Volfa!

Age group was mega tough. In girl U16 group Elza Niklase was 7th. Unfortunately, Renāte Beļājeva cocludes her season 10th. Photos - here!
Review and statistics of the C-19 season
Despite the worldwide pandemic, summer season of 2020 has turned out to be a dense one. Light euphoria because expectation for the season were exceeded. This year, almost all Ašais athletes were in the younger year of their respective age groups, which often times is a disadvantage, but not for our athletes, because of the hard work during quarantine. This summer, athletes of Ašais won gold and bronze in Latvian championships, in addition a bronze medal in Baltic Championship for U16 too! Small note - in each age group to U18, there are two athletes. The statistics are as follow:
Summer season 2020 closed off with 5 pedestals and 4 PB's in Pärnu
It is clear that this has been the all time latest season in athletics in the history of SC Ašais. Not the longest, but the latest. Never before had we finished the summer season in August 22nd, but if we can finish a season in this manner, then we can finish it even in January! Journey to Pärnu was because of the last part of a race series hosted by the Estonian Athletics federation in the excellent stadium of this city! And look how it turned out - Ašais runners went home with 5 pedestals and 4 PB's! All as one started in 800m. The fastest of Ašais runners in this distance was Roberts Glazers, who got silver medal in the U18 age group with a fresh new PB of 2:04,46! Stella Paltiņa with a super PB of 2:29,25 and a silver medal in the U14 age group!
Ašais runners set fire to Tartu stadium with hot new PB's
There is bright side for everything, even the monster with the name of Covid19, but if it wasn't for Covid19, then SC Ašais wouldn't have started participating in Tartu sports club's race series! It was worth it! In the last race of the series, Ašais athletes manage to run like the Flash. Firstly, track was litu up by Roberts Glazers in the 1500m race, leaving his toughest opponent in the dust and hopeless - Kronberg from Tartu. Roberts 3rd overall, unquestionably the fastest amongst the youth and 2nd fastest in the U18 Latvian ratings this summer - 4:15,55!
SC Ašais start the season of Stirnu Buks with 4 medals and the fastest team title!
Unusual to talk about the start of Stirnu Buks season in August, when usually the seasons final adventures occur, but this is an unusual year.
Trail runners had also been put to rest by the relentless C19, however trail running in Stirnu Buks has finally returned. And this time to one of our favorite outdoor spots! Ašais runners have jumped from stadium to trailrunning further proving why athletics is the queen of sports. Why? Because Stirnu Buks has started with excellent results! SC Ašais got the title of the fastest team, and 4 of our 6 athletes also took a spot on the pedestal. Victory for Stella Paltiņa (U14) and Renāte Beļājeva (U18), silver for Roberts Glazers (U18) and Elza Niklase (U16)! Furthermore all three Ašais girls are TOP 5 overall among girls - Stella 2nd, Elza 4th and Renāte 5th! Even more so, Stella was only 17 seconds from the overall winner among girls - Estere Volfa! Roberts, however concludes the TOP 3 boys overall, being just behind U20 Niks Zauls and his own age groups Ralfs Rogs, with whom Roberts has tough competition also in stadiums. Roberts relentless chase after vocyory is proven by the results of boys TOP 3 - Roberts was only 6 seconds from 2nd place and a few more from the 1st place... Ričards Špacs got got 6th place in U16 and Roberts Cercins 9th. Photos - here! Results - here!
2019. /2020. season is the 12th season of SC Ašais! 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.
