Beginners update and next course 4th September

We have already had 3 people join the club from the recent ‘Beginners’ running course and a further two are coming along to check the club nights out. So we have decided to do it all again and organise another course starting 4th September and running for 9 weeks. We thought about running it sooner, during the glorious sunny summer months (!), but felt we would get a lot of absentees (beginners, coaches and supporters), so better to leave it until later in the year. If you know anyone who is interested please ask them to register their interest with beginners@thornburyrunningclub.co.uk . We will fully publicise later in the summer.

Kind Regards

Kevin Wood

An URGENT appeal for the Cotswold Way Relay – Sat 29th June

Tomorrow 21 May is the last day we can register runners for the Cotswold Way Relay on 29 June.

At this time we have just about enough runners for all the stages for the three teams, but if we lose any more through injury we will have ‘non-runner’ stages.

If you might be available, if you might like to have a go, Judy Mills must know by 5pm tomorrow, Tuesday 21st. She will need your name, date of birth and whether you have subscribed to EA. Email to judy.mills@live.co.uk or text 0781 795 8199.

If you are registered you won’t have to run, and you still may not get a chance to run, but if you are not registered by midnight on Tuesday 21 May you will not be able to run

Thanks,
Judy Mills

TRC beginners update, Thornbury parkrun support

Sorry, correction to the previous post. Please support them at the THORNBURY parkrun!  (No Chipping Sodbury one that day.)

This week is the 8th week of the 9 week beginners running course. The aim is to get the beginners from 0 to 5km in this time. To celebrate this achievement we are encouraging the participants to run the THORNBURY parkrun on Saturday 1st June. It would be great if club members could come along and run on that day too. You don’t have to run with them, just be there in club colours, meet them and say “hello” by the club flag and cheer them along.

Thanks,

Kevin Wood
