  1. Volunteer Prize Draw – open to all Members. Win yourself £50

As you all know we are always looking for volunteers to help with our events, help with the Tea Rota and to lead Groups. Your committee has decided that we should put forward some incentives for you to volunteer. As from 1st May we are putting up an annual prize fund of £400 – £50 for each of our 3 events, £50 per quarter for the Tea Rota and £50 for a Group Leader.  These £50 prizes will be drawn at an appropriate date each quarter for all Members who have volunteered in those 8 categories. All you have to do is volunteer and then make sure your name is down! The first event draw will be for the Thornbury 10k and will be drawn after the race on 27th June.

  1. Pete Mainstone Challenge 2024

This is a series of specially selected local  10Km races where we aim to get a great club turn out boosted by a bit of healthy competition and a beer or two at the finish courtesy of TRC. Enter two races and claim back your entry fee for the third race you enter – see the Treasuer for more info. Run as many of the races as you can and your best 3 positions will count towards the series trophies awarded to best male and female overall  – there are age adjusted prizes too – as well as cold beers and healthy (ish) snacks to share with our TRC friends at the finish line.The aim is to get as many club members as possible out to share the fun of racing – no matter what your age or pace. This year’s remaining events are:

  1. GWR towpath series Race 3  – 26th July  –
  2. The Flying Monk 10k Malmesbury  – Sat 31st August  –

There may also be a final bonus race so keep a look out during the summer. So please get those entries in as soon as possible so you don’t miss out.  See you on the start line – any questions just ask Jo Plumbley – 07860 623312
