WELCOME

Featured

Welcome to Thornbury Running Club. We meet on Thursday, 7 pm, in Thornbury Leisure Centre and runners of all types are welcome, from walking speed upwards.

There are coaching sessions from the Leisure Centre car park on Tuesdays at 7pm.

Club annual membership fees are now due: £15 for an individual plus a recommended option for England Athletics. See the membership page.

Well done those that ran the Riverbank Rollick. For results and photos look here, or on Facebook, or FullonSport .

This year we have introduced a very special set of medals for runners who complete any of the three races that the club organises. All three form a set. We think they look terrific and those who complete the Rollick can start their collection!

Next races: Thornbury 10k on 13th July and Oldbury Power 10 miler on 3rd September.

Don’t forget we don’t have use of the Leisure Centre this Thursday- come changed & meet in top Car Park at the usual time. (19.00)

  • Pete M is off to New Zealand in Feb so whilst he is away Emma Barnes and Mike Willis will be standing in –  I’m sure they can rely on help from other Club Members if necessary!
  • AGM Thurs 2nd Feb after our usual Thursday night run. There is a final TRC Committee Meeting this Thursday so if anyone has any ideas to put forward then let any Committee Member know on Thursday before during or after our run.
  • Swimathon – we have two full Teams now. Thanks.
  • I have no Race Results as yet but I know 10 TRC Members did the Doynton Hard Half on Sunday and were led home by an ‘injured’ Rob Watkins and the ladies by Jo Plumbley.

Have Fun.
