We encourage all members to wear club colours when competing.
The ‘fly the flag award’ was discontinued after 2015 and is currently dormant. We now have a ‘parkrun of the Month’ where we encourage club members to all run wearing club shirts (colours).
Fly the Flag
These awards were introduced in 2012 to encourage participation in races and representing the club and were based on the number of times members represented the Club over a calendar year. Any runner who ran for the Club 10-14 times, Jan – Dec won a bronze award, 15-19 times silver and in excess of 20 times gold!
Almost any race counted, providing:
1. you entered as Thornbury Running Club
2. you wore Club colours
TRC’s own races (Riverbank Rollick, Thornbury 10k, Oldbury Power 10 miler) did NOT count as this penalised those who marshaled – and marshaling or helping is more important than running on those occasions.
The award was discontinued after 2015 and is currently dormant.
Here are previous year results:
