  1. Riverbank Rollick 2024.

They say it takes a village to raise a child and I think we can say it takes a Club to run an event. Thank you to all those involved with helping stage the Rollick this weekend. I would like to call out a few people in particular, whilst conscious that I will be remembered for the people I forget to include rather than those I thank! There were 8 section leaders – Jon Welsh, Ashleigh Davidson, Kevin Cundy, Ros Roland, Jon Hall, Mark Williams, Carol Mosses and Natalie Bennett. Thanks to ‘The Magnificent 8’ for all their support and for getting up really early to set up the course. Thanks also to Steve Dimond for help with the route and stables and to Arthur for the handover. Thanks to Emma for supporting me form 7:00 am to 2:00 pm in a variety of roles. A big thank you to Nathan who does an amazing amount of work behind the scenes on the systems and finances. Thank you to Roger Glew for the generous loan of his van, although I had hoped he would lend me his Porsche. Finally thank you to the 69 Club members and 5 family members who turned up on the day to stand in the sunshine to make sure all the runners had a safe and friendly experience. Feedback from runners was great and you made that possible.

Conditions were a perfect mix of mud and sunshine! We had 395 runners and all the results are here with the winner finishing in an astonishing 59:01! We had 5 club members who marshalled and ran. Ben Bohane finished 4th in 1:06:18 followed by Peter Cable 1:13:23, Ollie Brown 1:25:17, Sarah Blakey 1:34:59 and Sarah Newnes 1:53:21. Our ‘Cut off Runner’ Tom Witherbed and ‘Tail Runners’ Annie Green and Jerry Clothier rounded off the event in 2 hours 45 mins by supporting two ladies determined to finish.

Highlights were the person who ran the last part of the race in only one shoe and being able to commentate that ‘Tom & Jerry’ we running into the finish.

You might like to take a look at a short video of the start and the official photos.

South Glos are seeking views on their proposals to make improvements at the Grovesend Road A38 junction. Through the improvements, they want to increase capacity at this busy junction to reduce congestion and delays. At the same time, they plan to introduce new walking and cycling paths, linking up with other proposed schemes to encourage more people to consider more active and sustainable ways of getting around. 

Please share your feedback on the proposals by completing this survey  Have Your Say Today – Grovesend Road/A38 Junction Improvements – Commonplace

  1. Are We Nearly There?

The number of Club members (and their non-member partners!) signing up to support the Club through marshalling at the Riverbank Rollick continues to grow, thank you. I will get back to all volunteers once I have enough people to allocate roles, please save the date – Sunday 14th January. We still need more marshals and have yet to hear from a great many members. This year we are implementing a race ‘cut off time’ which should reduce the time people are required to marshal for. It only takes 60 seconds to sign up and join the team. I would like to have all marshal positions sorted by the end of November please, as there is a lot to do in the final countdown to the event. Marshalling is fun and allows the Club to fund events – pizza, drinks, chilli, XC, CWR etc. We need marshals to run this event safely and not to lose any runners! Thanks again. ->  RR Link for everyone
