  1. Thornbury 10k – Thursday 27th June 

On behalf of Race Director Colette Jackson thanks to all the 60+ Members who Marshalled and helped in various capacities last Thursday. Feedback from the runners has been very positive and we kept up with the hight standard of race organisation that we are known for. We had a few problems with large agricultural vehicles insisting on going past the finish when runners were coming in but otherwise all went well. Special thanks to the Sailing Club who organised the car parking and laid on cake at the finish.

If you have any remaining Marshal bibs or any other bits of race equipment please return to Arthur Renshaw when you can. Thanks
