Flying the Flag

These new awards were introduced in 2012 to encourage participation in races and representing the club and are based on the number of times members represent the Club over a calendar year.  Any runner who races for the Club 10-14 times, Jan – Dec wins a bronze award, 15-19 times silver and in excess of 20 times gold!

Almost any race counts, providing:

1. you enter as Thornbury Running Club
2. you wear Club colours

TRC’s own races (Rollick, Sundays Hill, OPS10, also the Oldbury fun-run) do NOT count as this penalises those who marshal – and marshalling or helping is more important than running on those occasions.

Although the running and tri-results will be scanned regularly it will be no good complaining if your races aren’t counted, unless you have sent an e-mail to John Grimsey (running) Rob Hopkins (duathlon/triathlon) Craig Carscadden (Road Race championships) or Judy Mills (Gazette reports and Flying the Flag).

So, get entered, get out there, and fly the flag for Thornbury Running Club!
