Thanks to everyone who came to the first club social of the summer last week, it was great to see lots of new faces & some returnees.


Club Championships – June / July
A number of events coming up this month in the club championships. The first of the dedicated Saturday’s for Oxford Parkrun is next Saturday (17th June – note it’s Cutteslowe & not Uni Parks).

For those who are on the ball Brackley Chicken Run has returned to its usual June date & is on 18th June – link https://www.brackleyrunningclub.co.uk/brackley-10km-chicken-run/

We have asked the question about Motavation entries for those who didn’t enter the original series. If previous years are anything to go by it’ll be £10 per race & enter on the night but please don’t quote us on this without confirmation.

Next one is Combe I (the one you don’t you need to be a mountain goat for).

With there only being one event in July & Otmoor challenge now being confirmed we’ve added this to the championships. it’s on Saturday 1st July & is now a morning start so disappointingly there may not be a beer tent at the end.



Club nights this week

Both Tuesday (Whitelands) & Thursday (back of the sports centre) as normal this week. It’s been great to see new faces on both nights last month so please encourage each other to come along. The newcomers have been delighted with the welcome they’ve received.

As ever the premise is each group runs for about 50-55 minute on a Thursday with Tuesday’s interval sessions.

For those of you that wish to run the 4 mile ‘relaxed’ route on Thursday’s please can you let Katy Andrews know you’re coming so it can be forwarded on so we can ensure we have a buddy in place.

Don’t forget the road closure in place along Kings End. Hopefully only one more week.


Have a good week.
