Couple of important updates for the coming months this week


Alchester AGM

Our annual AGM will be on Thursday 9 February at the Emmanuel Church on Bure Park (next to the shops) at 20:15

Club runs will start and finish from here as a one off.

Pizza will be provided & in the coming weeks a list of those likely to attend will be shared so we know approximate catering numbers.

Usual drills of election of officers & new committee will take place. New volunteers always very welcome, for more information let Jonathan know.


London Marathon Bus

Alchester Running Club are now welcoming bookings for the bus to and from the London Marathon on Sunday 23rd April 2023. Bookings are open to all, whether a member of Alchester, our friends from other local running clubs, or anybody else running or spectating.

Booking early is advised due to the ongoing uncertainty around the train strikes. This popular bus will take runners directly to the start in a relaxed and stress free manner.

Our bus partners have increased the cost this year, so for the first time in over 5 years we will have a slight increase in price. But it is still fantastic value at only £20 per person for members and £25 per person for non-members.

The bus will leave the rear of Bicester Leisure Centre at 0600 hours sharp. (Meet at 0545.) Runners will be dropped at the start at Blackheath in good time, and spectators will have the choice of getting off there or at Marble Arch in Central London.

The bus will pick up runners and spectators at 1630-1645 from close to the finish at the RAC Club, Pall Mall and return to Bicester for about 1830.

Wendy and Ian Hunter have organised this bus for several years now, and will make sure all runners get to the right start area and will be on hand to answer any questions.

If you would like to secure a place(s) on the bus please contact Wendy at w_hunter1@sky.com
