What’s On …


  1. A year of ‘parkrun of the month’

In 2021- 22 we have had 7 parkruns of the month with attendance varying from 31 in July at Thornbury and in October, to 2 at Chipping Sodbury and Rogiet. We clearly don’t travel far! 59 of our men have taken part in 455 parkruns and 27 of our ladies in 193 parkruns.  So, altogether a total of 648 parkrunners at 63 locations. Most travelled parkrunner is John Franacksen with 11 event, but he didn’t visited Thornbury this year! Most popular parkruns were Thornbury with a total of 294 runners, then Severn Bridge with 63 and Chipping Sodbury with 59. We have had 25 first finishers by 8 runners at 8 different locations and a further 10 first gender finishers by 5 runners at 5 different locations. Winners of parkrun ladies and men’s outright time and age adjusted time, along with greatest number of parkruns completed in the year, will be announced at the Annual Party & Awards Night . Many thanks to Mel Lloyd for all the stats this year.

  1. Self Defence

This session is for both women and men. We need 20 people for the session and we have 6 signed up. Unless we have a minimum of 15 signed up by next Wednesday I will disappointingly cancel the event in fairness to the instructors. If I have 15 I will open to the public for family and friends, but with only 6 this becomes a public not club event. Saturday 28th May 9:30 – 12:30 at a Club subsidised price of just £9.50 (full price £25.50) sign up link

  1. TRC Annual Party & Awards Night – May 20th

  1. Membership Renewal Overdue

Thank you to those who have already paid. Unfortunately we still have a number of people who have yet to renew.  These people will now be contacted individually and asked to renew  and make payment  by end April, or it will be assumed they do not wish to renew.
