TRC Virtual Club Night 30/04/20

Hi All,

We last had a proper Thursday night run on 12th March which is now 7 weeks ago. I trust everyone is finding new ways to keep up their running fitness and fortunately the weather has certainly helped over the past few weeks. – keeping the footpaths around Thornbury nice and dry.

There has been no change in the official advice either from the Government or from England Athletics – EA have cancelled all activities until 31st May.

A big shout out to Emma and Chris Pritchard on the birth of their daughter Grace on 21 April. Both Emma and Grace are doing well (see Chris’s Facebook post for a picture of Grace wearing a TRC top!)

Coming up next week two longstanding Members also reach a new milestone – 70 years old!
Anne Palmer on 4th May and Chris Foley on 6th May. Congratulations to both who are still running so a bottle of Champagne is waiting for you when we finally get back to something like normal.

Those on the Club’s Facebook page will have been entertained by Judy Mills nominating a different song for each day which includes some surprising choices; and photos of your London Marathon experiences including a black and white photo of John Grimsey from 1988 looking like a boy.

• TRC Virtual Run Series – April Challenge
Don’t forget to get your times to Kevin before Thursday 30th April.
Kevin will try and do a live Facebook stream at 7:00pm on Thursday 7th May to announce the winners, and announce the May challenge.

• England Athletics Membership 20/21
Thanks to Dave Beard and Mike B all those of you who wanted EA Membership for 20/21 have had their Membership paid up front by the Club (1 April – 31 March 2021) When we come to renew your Club Membership in October we will be seeking for you to pay the subsidised £10 back to the Club.

If there is any change to the official position or we have any news for you we will post the details on here.

Look after yourselves and keep safe.
Arthur Renshaw,
