Club Night 24/11/16 cont…

Tonight there is the usual Pete’s run for all and Ros will be leading an off-road night run for those who have good head-torches and hi-viz tops and some extra courage!.

There is a Committee meeting tonight at 21.00 so the run may be a bit on the shorter side but Pete will make sure it will still be a challenge!

For those who haven’t tried Cross Country before the next two events are very local so now is the opportunity to have a go. Make yourself known on Thursday night if you fancy going to Blaise Castle &/or Wotton-Under-Edge

Club Members Results are in this week’s Thornbury Gazette in full thanks to Judy Mills. Judy is stopping doing the press reporting after mid January so we are looking for somebody (anybody) who can write to maybe take over from Judy. We are also looking for a new Club Secretary so if anyone is interested please see Chairman Craig.

Notable in this weeks Results are…

  • Ros Rowland 49.36  2nd LV50 at the Mallards Pike off-road 8.2km night run. Mike Benewitz has also been eating his carrots and he did 64.57
  • At the Castle Coombe 10k in pretty miserable conditions Liam Jones did 48.00; Alison Dyson in her first race for a while and in her new shoes did 51.19 and Cathy Watkins is getting closer to that hour with 60.28
  • At various Park Runs: Moray Sloan 20.43 at Stonehouse; Judy Mills 27.10 at W-U-E; Kevin Arnold 21.19 at Chip Sod and Paul Thomas 20.14 at Gloucester.

Finally this week we are still looking for volunteers for our Riverbank Rollick race on Sun 15th January. If you helped last year we are hoping you will do the same this time around but it would be very good if some of our newer Members were prepared to help out on our biggest event of the year.(The Race is limited to 400 entries and we are close to half full already) Please make yourself known to Arthur Renshaw if you can help. (07810 300025)
