  1. Club Membership

2023-24 Club membership was due on 31st March, thank you to all those who have already renewed. If you have not,  please complete 2023-24 membership form. The membership fees for 2023-24 are unchanged from 2022-23. If you want EA membership support it is important you apply by the end April latest. Please can you pay promptly as it takes a lot of admin from Nathan and I chasing people every year. If you are one of the 7 people who joined in January 2023, this does not apply to you, as your membership is valid until end March 2024. If you have any questions please contact

  1. Club Road Race Championships + Run & Rehydrate

Please join us for the 2023 Club Road Race Championships on Thursday 27th April  for a 7:00 pm run start. This event is open to ALL club members and is a great opportunity for us all to run together. Starting close to The Anchor Inn Oldbury and running over the new Thornbury 10k course (reverse direction to 2022). This is a straight shoot out single race with trophies for 1st female and 1st male runners. More importantly it’s a chance for us to run together as a Club. First drinks free for all runners and marshals. We also plan to use this event to present our Club charity (Bristol Bone Marrow / Anthony Nolan Trust) with a cheque. I need 7 marshals please who can walk or run to a marshal position (and get a free drink). Ideal for anyone injured or the walking group. Please contact
