Thursday session – group leaders required

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 are on at 5 o’clock so plenty of time to make it (if you’re 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 fully understand you might be on the ✈️ home or overdone the IrnBru)

🤷‍♂️ we have 5 pace groups so there is something for everyone. Each one is earmarked to all finish at the same time & it’s very important people keep together.

If you’re not feeling it go in an easier group, if wanting to push it be mindful of others in the group.

Please be careful at junctions & on corners as the weeds & verges are high & visibility not always the best.
Group 99 (walk / run) group lead required
– Group 1 – 9:45 min miling doing about 5.5 miles – group lead required
– Group 2 – 8:45 min miling doing about 6 miles – group lead required
– Group 3 – 8 min miling doing about 6.5 miles – group lead required
– Group 4 – 7:20 min miling doing about 8 miles – group lead required

⏰18:55 for a prompt 19:00 start.

Everyone welcome & group leaders encouraged to put their hand up. 🙋‍♂️ 🙋‍♀️

 

Ridgeway Relay 🦵🦵🦵🦵🦵🦵🦵🦵🦵🦵

🤷‍♂️ we have 20 runners in 2 teams signed up to run from Ivinghoe Beacon to Marlborough School starting at 07:30 on Sunday.

It’s a relay race with legs ranging from just under 5 miles to over 11 miles. Almost all off road with some big ⛰️

Good luck & don’t get lost 😉 – just follow the acorn 🥜 (I know it’s a peanut but it’s the closest emoji). They’ve almost all practiced their legs….

 

Have a good week

Alchester Weekly Update – 12/06/2024

Hi,

Don’t forget the social tomorrow at Lower Heyford.

 

Motavation #3 – Combe I

The next Mota-vation race is 2 weeks on Thursday – 27th June – at Combe so there won’t be a club run from the leisure centre that evening. Alchester needs to provide 3 marshals for this race. If you’re not running, or you have friends or family you could persuade to help out, then please do offer by emailing Alan on alanb.alchester@gmail.com . Marshalling is actually good fun, and it’s only by providing marshals that we get the big discount on entry prices! Any questions about what’s involved, just ask Alan either by email or at a club night.

 

Club champs races coming up

Besides Motavation there’s a number of future club champs races open for the entries. In no particular order:
– Waddesdon 5k https://www.voaac.org.uk/waddesdon-manor-5k/
– Cotswold Classic https://www.witneyroadrunners.co.uk/cotswoldclassic/
– Headington 5 https://hrr.org.uk/headington-5m/
– Buckingham 10k is currently not showing as being on. If no decision by the end of this month we’ll move to the reserve race of Tring 15k which is a lovely run. https://www.tringrunningclub.org.uk/ridgewayrun/

 

See you tomorrow

Simple message this week.

🏃‍♀️🍹🍻Next social🏃‍♂️ 13 June 2024 – Bell Inn, Lower Heyford

Our next social run is on Thursday 13th June & will replace the usual club session. We will meet outside The Bell Inn (thebellinnlowerheyford.co.uk) at 6:45pm. The route is 5.75 miles of mixed terrain. We had a great turnout at the last social run and hope to see lots of you again. We’ll try to arrange some slightly better weather!

If you plan to attend please email social@alchester-runningclub.co.uk / respond on Spond so we have a rough idea of numbers.

The run is again focused on social so no pb’s, just a good opportunity to run somewhere different, enjoy the countryside and have a chat.

We will have various paced groups so don’t worry about your pace, everyone is welcome.

Arrive at 6:45pm for a prompt 7pm start.

Bring some spare clothes and see you in the pub afterwards for a drink.

Please note this replaces the club run from the sports centre.
