Jon Hall and Chis Pritchard will be promoting the event via FaceBook and Carol Mosses will be helping as she looks after the Beginners sessions. The normal Thursday night runs may need to be a bit more flexible depending on who turns up.

  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. Thornbury 10k – Thursday 27th June 2024

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.
