November 2021 As the nights get darker (and wetter and colder) its good to see our numbers on a Wednesday evening increasing again. I am sorry we are not offering the warmth of the Old Assembly Rooms but we are trying to keep fresh air and social distance as much as possible. Spoiler alert - the AGM will be in the Assembly Rooms and hopefully we will have plenty of space for those who come along. More on this in a moment. Thank you to all those who completed the survey, we will share the results as soon as we...

After the disruption of the last 18 months, we know there have been a lot of changes for our members, so we thought it would be a good idea to find out what your priorities are now and what changes we can make to the club to make it better.

The best way is to speak to a committee member on club night but you can always message us too. We have 122 members and are affiliated to both England Athletics and more recently the ARC (Association of Running Clubs). The ARC is a no f...

Well done to all our Strugglers Ladies and Gents who helped us undertake our first season in the Westward League, which I'd guess you'd describe as the 'Premier' League of its type in the South-West, regardless of terrain type. It's been a bit of a learning curve but I think I can say unequivocally that everybody enjoyed it (although none of the men enjoyed the start-line pelting we got from the weather yesterday...). We even managed to get teams out of 'the Shire' to the Newquay ...
