 Nick Williams’s time at the Shakespear Marathon is a Club Record and finally surpasses Nick Langridge’s 2:43:30 at Hereford in 1991. A problem with the results doesn’t show Nick Williams in the Marathon but he would have been in 4th place overall. Jess Heffer who did 3:04:25 at London last year finally smashed 3hours today with 2:51:55 which is a new Female Club record. Paul & Mary Thomas did run and finish together.

Well done to all our finishers in London today and commiserations to George Evans who had to drop out half way around with a pulled hamstring.

  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. Thornbury 10k – Thursday 27th Start 19.30 Oldbury

The 2nd race of the club’s 2024 race series is coming up in June.  It is a great route from the Oldbury Sailing club, around the lanes, and back down from St Arilda’s finishing at the Anchor. The profits from the club events go towards the club charity donation, and lots of the social activities we put on such as “Run & Rehydrate”, cross country, t shirt discounts etc. Your help makes this all possible!  To deliver this event successfully and safely, we will need club members to come and marshal (60+ in total).  Please put your name down on the Form attached here  Thornbury 10K. Any questions please contact Colette Jackson on 

Note we will be running the route of the 10k for the Club Champs 2 weeks before the open event (Club night Thursday 13th June)

  1. AGM – Thursday 16th May (Club Year 1st April 2024 – 31st March 2025)

The AGM will be after Club Night on Thursday 16th May at 20.30.  An e-mail has been sent to all Members today from the Club Secretary with more information about the AGM.

  1. Charity or worthy cause for the Club to support in 2024-25.

A voting form will be made available in the near future where all Members will be able to vote for their Charity/worthy cause of choice. This will be advertised in the weekly Bulletin. The aim is to announce the new Charity of choice at the AGM.

  1. A Group to organise Social activities for the Club

The Committee are looking for a small Team of people to organise some social functions including the Annual Dinner and a BBQ after the Cotswold Relay on the weekend of 6/7th July. If you are interested in helping please make yourself known to any Committee Member.
