  1. Track News

Unfortunately the WISE track will be closed from 4th July to change the infield to an American Football marked pitch and for the track to be resurfaced/re-laid. The plan is to reopen late Sept/ early Oct (tbc) with a sparkly track minus the infield. Whilst this is disappointing, we will have the track back in time for winter and in the meantime can use the summer evening to explore other venues. More Kenyan Diagonals @ Chantry Fields and Kenyan Hills coming soon!

  1. Park run of the month 11/6

Next parkrun of the month, also “graduation” run for beginners group that has just finished @ Chipping Sodbury 11/6.

  1. Club Charity Update

You will hopefully recall we recently voted to adopt Bristol Bone Marrow as our Club charity for 2022-23. Bristol Marrow is in fact a group of volunteers at Bristol University who raise money for Anthony Nolan but are not a registered charity in themselves. Any money we raise with them will go to the Anthony Nolan Trust.
