  1. Club Night Runs in the dark

As it is now getting dark when we return from our Thursday run we strongly recommend that all runners and walkers wear a Hi Viz top and carry a head torch. Everyone please take extra care when running alongside and/or crossing roads and make sure you can be seen by car drivers.

Nathan is collating a guide for our new members of light torches “recommended by our members” If you’re happy with what you are using and feel it is worthy of a recommendation then please send an email with make and model to We will also use the feedback to get some club “spares” for our members to trial.

  1. TRC’s Oldbury 10 Mile road Race

Thanks to Race Director Emma Pritchard and everybody who helped with the 10 Mile race. Fortunately, the rain held off until most of the runners were back at the Finish. We had a sell-out 400 entries but we had a 25% no-show with only 300 runners getting a finish time. TRC Members finishing times are shown above.

  1. Basic First Aid & CPR for runners – Monday 25th September 

It is about time we revisited what to do when you are out running and someone nearby collapses. Clare Watt will lead an evening session on Monday 25th Sept in our usual room – Severnside Suite from 19.00-21.00.  All Members are welcome to come along. It just may save somebodies life if you know how to do CPR and give basic first aid.     Put your name down on the Google Form attached here.

  1. Cross Country (Gloucester League)

In a slight change to last year the running club will refund your entry fee at point of entry, so need to run the race and then claim.
