What’s On …  

  1. Club Membership

Your 2023-24 Club membership is due on 31st March please complete 2023-24 membership form. 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 Charity Vote

Each year the Club adopts a charity to support. For 2022-23 it has been Bristol Bone Marrow / Anthony Nolan Trust, now is the time to vote for our 2023-24 Club charity. We asked members to nominate charities they would like the club to support and 6 charities have been nominated. More details about these charities and why they have been nominated can be found here. We are now asking you to vote for the one charity you would like the Club to support for 2023-24 from this list of nominations by midnight 31st March, when the vote will close. The winning charity will be announced at the AGM. Thank you

  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 participants 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 who can walk or run to a marshal position (and get a free drink). Please contact
