Huge thanks and well done to everyone involved in organising, volunteering at, running or otherwise supporting this year’s Bison Bash. Results can be found via the Bison Bash page.
In a change to the previously advertised location, the final summer outrun will now take place at 7pm on Weds 28th August from the Wheel Inn at Branston.
This will be followed by the annual cake competition, so get baking and get ready to run (and then eat cake…) – see you there!
Well done to all who took part in, and to Shane for organising, this year’s No Watch Race. With 9 out of 27 runners all within 1 minute of their prediction, it really was anybody’s to win – so a huge well done to Ashley for taking the victory!
Location for this year’s No Watch Race is Crown Inn, Sproxton – 7pm on 14th August.
New to the “No Watch Race”? Full details are on the No Watch Race page.
There has been a slight change of plans to the previously published Summer Outrun schedule. Following the Three Club Challenge on Tues Aug 6th, the Croxton Kerrial outrun will now be on Wed Aug 7th at 7pm from the Goose and Feathers and the No Watch Run will be on Wed Aug 14th at a location to be confirmed closer to the time.
Updated schedule for all the Summer Outruns on Wednesdays is at summer outruns page.
In this edition we profile a current club member (Greeba Heard), her incredible progress and motivation, then highlight members’ charitable fundraising efforts and revamp the London Marathon eligibility criteria for the club’s place(s) plus introduce our new race “the Bison Bash” as well as a round up of the many events over the last month or so.
Three Club Challenge 7.00pm Rushcliffe Golf Course Tuesday 6th August. £5.00 including post race food.
This year it is hosted by Barrow Runners and although it is not our usual club night we need to muster as many runners as we can so please put the date in your diaries and it gives you enough time to make any arrangements.
This is an annual event between Barrow, Wreake Runners and ourselves and if you haven’t experienced a race yet this is a great way to start as it is a low key and friendly event, albeit there is a trophy and the associated bragging rights at stake.
We would welcome your participation on the night and we can arrange car sharing closer.
Let’s see if we can beat last year’s turnout.
See you on the 6th.
More details on the event can be found on the three club challenge page.
Over the summer months, we still have club runs on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings.
On Wednesdays we have our summer outruns – the schedule can be found on the dedicated summer outrun page (follow this link, or type “summer outruns” in the search bar).
Thursdays remains technical sessions, and Fridays we have the ‘chatty runs’ – keep an eye on our Facebook page (or join the members closed group) for the latest details each week.
