Results as reported 4th February 2019

The snow and ice played havoc with the racing calendar and parkrun schedule at the weekend, leading to many cancelled events.

Ian Shepherd is Thornbury Running Club’s most prolific parkrunner; having completed 239 runs and volunteered on an equally impressive 139 occasions. On Saturday, Ian ventured up to Churchfields Farm parkrun near Droitwich and ran 37:05 mins.

Romeo Maddalena took part in the Atlasville parkrun near Johannesburg and finished in 28:12 mins.

Hi TRC Members,

Guy Oldring from the Thornbury Clinic has now arranged their first talk in conjunction with the leisure centre. It will be on Tuesday the 26th of Feb at 7.30pm and the subject is “common injuries and how to prevent them”. The event is of course free.

For anyone to join they just need to register for the event with the link below. If you would be able to share this with the club I think it may really help them to stay fit and healthy.

Club news – membership update.

When we conducted the ‘Club Survey’ in 2017 the largest age group was 51-55 (we did not ask for specific ages). With many older members we were concerned that we were an aging club and not attracting younger members. Fast forward …. Analysing the ages of all recent joiners, who have an average age of 39, this brings the overall average down to 47.

Also in 2017 the gender balance was 42% ladies and 55% men (with 3% not providing info). The split is now almost exactly 50% 50%.

Happy running,

Kevin Wood.
