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!
