  1. TRC Membership Fees 2024/5

At last week’s Committee Meeting it was decided to maintain the current level of Membership fees for the next Club year 2024/5. England Athletics fees would continue to be subsidised and the subsidy would be increased to £9 per Member (leaving Members to pay £10 of the £19 EA fees)

  1. Club Night Runs in the dark

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.

As promised our Treasurer has put together a guide on Head Torches:

These will be allocated to Club members on a first come first served basis.If you wish to have one of these limited places please contact the Race Directors via  Members are requested to only enter our races on confirmation from the Race Directors.

  1. Rollick Gets Bigger – a message from Race Director Kevin Wood.

For 2024 we have expanded the Rollick entries to 450 and need your help to run the events safely and effectively, the Rollick needs a lot of marshals due to the nature of the course. Marshalling is also fun! The cake stall will be run this year by and for Friends of Castle School, so everyone in the Club can marshal the course.

Each year we organise three events from which we plan to make a surplus to fund. If you have eaten pizza and had a drink at ‘Run & Rehydrate’, had your X-Country entry paid, had your EA membership subsidised, had a % T-shirt etc you have benefited from this.

Please can everyone reply using the link below so we know who has seen this request and can follow up with anyone who has not responded. Thank you in anticipation for volunteering to marshal. RR’24 Call for Marshals

  1. London Marathon – Sunday 21st April 2024

The Club has one place for the London Marathon. Any Club Member who wishes to be considered for a Club place must furnish the Secretary with proof of race entry, or of a failed attempt at entry. This may take the form of either a letter sent to the Secretary by the end of November signalling that an attempt at online entry has been made and rejected because entries had already closed, or a rejection letter following the ballot (and copied to the Secretary by not later than the end of November).
