  1. Bristol Running Show

300 people attended the Bristol Running Show at BAWA on Sunday 16th July. Thank you to Suzy, Melanie, Jo, Kev C, Chris P, Chris F and Kevin W for giving up their time on a Sunday to be on our Club’s stand.. We had 14 people sign up to get more info about the 2024 Race Series, 2 people ask for more info about membership and a good number saying they will do the O10m.

  1. Basic First Aid & CPR for runners (September)

It is about time we revisited what to do when you are out running and someone nearby collapses. Clare Watt is going to organise an evening session in September so you all know how to do CPR and give basic first aid. More details to follow.

  1. TRC’s Next Events

The Oldbury 10 mile is on Sunday 17th September. This is the third and last event in the Thornbury 2023 series. Emma Prichard is the new Race Director for this event and in the next few weeks she will be looking for volunteers to help on the day. Please make yourself known to Emma if you can help.

Finally, we are still looking for a new Race Director and a team of 2 or 3 to organise next years Thornbury 10k. If you are interested in getting involved in a small team then please see Arthur Renshaw. Getting involved early, say by December, makes the whole job so much easier and there is plenty of experienced support around so you would not be left on your own.
