If you’ve looked at Facebook today you might see the key news item – summer has finally made an appearance! There’s also an important bit on the club champs.


Social Run this Thursday

Join us this Thursday for probably the last jaunt out of Bicester on a Thursday this year.

We will meet by the windmill (HP18 9TQ) at 6:45pm for a prompt 7pm start. Parking is limited in Brill so please arrive early and try your hardest to lift share. There is some free parking at village hall, some near the village green and some by the windmill.

After the run we will congregate at the windmill admire the sunset and have a drink on the grass.

Feel free to bring drinks a few nibbles and a picnic rug.

The run is a mainly off road. The weather forecast looks hot so bring water and don’t worry we won’t be going fast. If you didn’t know Brill is on a hill so you can work out the rest but fear not the route isn’t too far and walking is allowed 😊

We haven’t booked the pub so feel free to just turn up and run but if you could let us know you’re coming in advance it really helps us to work out guide runners. Please email social@alchester-runningclub.co.uk

Everyone welcome regardless of pace. Bring the family, bring the dog. They can have a walk on the common while we have a gentle run.

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


Club Champs

Well done to all those who did Cotswold Classic on Saturday. A tad warm & always lumpy!

We’ll have an updated table next week (please let Lewis know your Oxford Parkrun time if not already done so) but please note Hanney 5 has been cancelled and won’t be replaced.

Don’t worry there’s 2 other events in October & links to them are on the website.


Club nights

Tuesday continues at Whitelands this week. Updates on Tuesday’s on a weekly basis as the move back to Gavray gets ever closer.

Thursday is the social run & next week we’ll be back to winter routes. We have variations this year (in Italy they say all roads lead to Rome, in Bicester all roads lead to the ring road) which we’ll introduce over the coming weeks.


Have a good week.
