Sunday 13th January – A further appeal for Marshals & Helpers

Our main Event the Riverbank Rollick is only just over 2 weeks away and we still need a lot more Marshals & Helpers on the day to make our event go smoothly. We are looking for about another 30 people to help sometime between 10.00 & 14.00

For those who have volunteered so far a big thank you – we will be getting back to you with your jobs & positions in the next few days.

For those of you who have yet to volunteer, and I think you know who you are, if you could get back to me or Jo in the next week that would be very helpful. If you can, please send me an e-mail with your availability.

Five valleys walk/run, this Sunday, 30th.

5-Valleys Walk/Run/Jog for Meningitis Now is this Sunday, 30 September. Tickets can be booked in advance at…/five-valleys-walk-2018-boo…/

We will be leaving from the Nailsworth checkpoint at 8.30am (there is no longer a checkpoint at Wycliffe where we used to begin), and there is free parking as shown on the map: if you park next to Tesco I think you need to use the upper car park.  (Map below.)

We will travel at the speed of the slowest person so no-one will be left behind. The full distance is 21 miles but there are buses to return people to the start if they have had enough.

And the weather forecast is good!

Judy Mills

PS Posted by Steve Dimond for Judy, and I can confirm that the scenery is glorious on the five valleys, and the company will be good.

The TRC Christmas Party

Please read this message from our party organizer Suzy Cundy.

***** Christmas Party Vote Result ******

By 38 votes to 11 the decision was for 5th January 2019.

So to ensure we don’t lose this date we need to give the golf club our commitment, so we need to get names down of who will be coming (partners welcome).

To have “exclusive” use of the party room we need to have a minimum of 70 people, we managed over 80 last year. Let’s see if we can get more!

Now comes the boring bit….. we need to secure this date with a £10 deposit from each person which needs to be paid ASAP either by cash or bank transfer.

I will bring a sign up sheet Tuesday and Thursday.

Thank you

With the 3rd and final race of the summer handicap series coming up on this Thursday 16th August the handicaps that will be applied have now been posted on the race page.  You will be able to see how much you will have to beat your rivals by or how close to keep them for your position.

Remember that it is your 2 best times added together that will give your series time for the final results.  So, everyone who has raced before, even if just once, has a chance for a position.

If you are not happy with your handicap then say beforehand, not after, but you will be referred to how far ahead, behind you were to others in the previous 2 races.  Basically, give it a go, try and beat someone, be quickest round, hold on to a lead, just enjoy it and someone will win.

Good news – more new runners

Tuesday night saw a terrific turn out for the second ‘Introductory Course for New Runners’ this year. 19 people had pre-registered 13 of whom turned up on the night and 2 send apologies. We also had 3 arrive on the night to register. So we had a grand total of 16 beginners for Craig to train. This should swell to 18 when the others join next week.

See you at the Rockhampton Fun Run tonight (Thursday 5th) with BBQ afterwards at the old Cricket Field, Rockhampton. Get there early as the race will be starting at 19.00. There is a small fee.

TRC Club Night Tomorrow Thursday 28th June

Please Note this message that was on the Club Facebook page .

Due to the football clashing with Club Night tomorrow it has been suggested that If you don’t think you can make it at 7pm some of us are going for a shorter 5k run at 6pm. You’re more than welcome to join us. We will meet at the top of the leisure centre car park – where we meet on a Tuesday evening or where we warm up if that’s too busy.

(This is in addition to the usual club night starting at 7).

Cotswold Way Relay message from Mike Bennewitz…

The final Team line-ups  as at Wed 27th is here on the website (scroll down) plus it is on Facebook.

I will be at Club tomorrow night hoping to give out as many numbers as possible. If you are going and can pick up the numbers for the others on your leg that would be helpful. Otherwise contact me on Friday  if you don’t know what’s happening.

The 30th is drawing closer and I know fellow runners have been doing their final Recce’s. The weather looks fair (no rain!) but make sure you have plenty of water as the weather will be hot! The list of Thornbury Runners and the various legs have changed between the original version we posted on the Website and now, but hopefully by tonight that table will have been updated so you can check all is ok.

The Full Team list should confirm what you already know and by now you should have sorted your transport out of how you are going to get to the start and be collected from the finish. If you haven’t now is the time to do it!!

Please also let your Team Leads have your mobile numbers for H&S purposes – we want to make sure you are all back safe and sound and it’s the Team Leads responsibility to check you are!!  I know Judy has asked but we are still missing some numbers. Mine and Judy’s number is on the website and Kevin’s/Rob’s  numbers you should have already.

And finally as Judy says ‘you are not to get injured between now and the 30th’!

Even more importantly, enjoy the day and especially the party afterwards which Arthur, Kathy and Suzy are organising!
