Footpath Closure proposed: Some of you may have seen that the Castle School /Shieling School are trying to close a footpath we use for the route of the Riverbank Rollick. The Committee decided that the Club would make it known to the Council that we do use the path but would leave it up to individual Members to decide whether to formally object or not. Please see the link here… it’s your choice; closing date for comment 23 Aug. https://consultations.southglos.gov.uk/consult.ti/PT.6312_OTH19/consultationHome
TRC Website. We are seeking an individual who knows something about web sites to help us maintain & improve the TRC website. If you are interested please see Nick Langridge, Dave Beard or Steve Dimond.
Results reporting: Finally, if you want to see your results on the TRC website and in the papers please make sure you enter any races as “Thornbury RC”. This also applies to your parkrun profile. If you are not down as Thornbury RC we cannot guarantee your results will be picked up

Please send any results for publication to Matt Johnstone reports@thornburyrunningclub.co.uk

Ron Hill – The Runners’ Runner

To mark Ron’s 80th year Sports Tours International made a short 20 minute documentary about him.  Interviews with Ron about his life, his races, first marathon, wins, Olympics and now, also string vests, split shorts and tracksters.  Other luminaries and friends talking about him.  How he started running barefoot because he forgot his shoes, how he psyched out Gaston Roelants.

And Ron now, being cheered and starting the race named after him – the Dr Ron Hyde 7, last stage of the Tour of Tameside which he started.

For anyone interested in running and how it was it’s really good,  so good I thought it was worth posting.  Follow the link, scroll down and hit the video.  Enjoy.

This Saturday, 29th, Summer Party at the Royal George!

Hi everyone,

As we haven’t arranged a summer party this year, thought it would be nice to have a get together this Saturday, 29th June. This also happens to be after the Cotswold Way Relay, in case any runners need recovery drinks!

Hopefully the sun will be shining ☀️

Meet at the Royal George, in The Plain in Thornbury from 7.30. Open to all.

See you there!

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
