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 to quick racers and ultras. If you want encouragement in your running read more here (click). Or keep in touch on Facebook.
On Tuesdays at 7pm at the upper Leisure Centre car park on Tuesdays you can join a speedwork session for anyone wanting to run repeats between 200m and one kilometre.
There is also an ongoing beginners group on Tuesdays for anyone wanting to improve their fitness and perhaps then be able to join the main groups. And a new beginners group is starting on 8th August. If you can run a few hundred metres (yes, even slowly!), you can try it. The course will run until end of September and you can join any time during the first 4 weeks of the course. By the end of the course we hope that you will be able to run/walk 5km and if you may wish take part in the new Thornbury Park Run . All ages welcome but athletes under 18 much be accompanied by a running adult. Please tell your friends and family
The club organises three races a year:-
The Oldbury Power 10 miler race (click for more details) is on Sunday 3rd September. This popular flat race is now FULL. See here for the entry list.
Thanks to everyone who came to run or support the Thornbury 10k race on Thursday 13th July. Click here for results. We had a great time and hope you did too.
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!
