TRC Club Night 13/08/20

Last Thursday seemed to work ok so we intend to do it all again with the same rules again this Thursday. We had 28 people turn up last week and they went off in 6 groups. All Members should have had an e-mail dated 29th July from Kevin Wood, our acting Captain, explaining everything in detail about what we all need to do to recommence Club Night.

Meet Thursday just before 7pm top car park at the Leisure Centre. You can use the toilets but no changing or showers. The top car park is marked out with the usual Group names (7 min, 8 min, 9 min, 11 min, 5k, & Walkers) Go direct to your Group area to meet your leaders and have your name taken for track & trace. Once you have six people and a Leader have your Group photo taken then off you go. There are 9 exits from around the Leisure Centre so no bunching.

    2. Tuesday Night sessions

    This has been postponed until 17th March 2021.

    4. Road, trail and cross country races.
    As everyone knows by now London as a mass participation event has been cancelled as expected. The Elite race will still go on in a closed London park on Sun 4th October. For those keen they can do a virtual marathon on the same day anywhere in the world! All local races have been cancelled or postponed – with one local exception The Severn Bridge 10k scheduled for the end of August. This race is using the Motorway carriageway of the old Severn Bridge and is having a staggered start over 2 hours . The race is full as they cancelled the Half Marathon and offered places on the 10k instead. Entries for the 2021 Bath Half Marathon are now open at
    This year’s Glos League Cross Country events are provisionally scheduled for 22 Nov, 12 Dec, 9 Jan & 27 Feb. Our Riverbank Rollick is still scheduled for Sunday 10th January 2021 using the Castle School as the HQ again.

    That’s all for this week. If you have anything to add or any suggestions or announcements please send by e-mail to

    Let’s try and make the Thursday night run a safe and enjoyable experience and please observe the points above – groups of no more than 6 and social distancing wherever possible.
