1. Run Group Sizes
We are back to Groups of 6 on a Thursday Club Night & on a Tuesday Efforts Night for a few weeks at least or until the Government or England Athletics issue further directives. If you intend cutting short your run or leaving your group for any other reason please make sure your Group Leader is fully aware.

2. Renewal of Membership, annual subs and EA fees
The Committee voted unanimously to forgo the deferred TRC Membership Fees for 2020/21. ie. You will not pay any TRC fees for this year! The next TRC Membership renewal will be from 1 April 2021.

For those Members where the Club paid the England Athletics (EA) fees for 2020/21 in advance we expect those Members to repay the Club the £10 subsidised fee (Full EA fees are £15 per person). To date we have only had payment from 24 out of the 61 people where we have paid your EA fees.

Please pay directly by Bank Transfer or if necessary by cheque to Mike Bennewitz. A/C No. 01190517, Bank sort code 30-12-04, please include your full name as a reference. Cheques to ‘Thornbury Running Club’.

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