Following on from Monday’s “what’s occurring” email below is the information one.


⏰ Motavation #2 – 30th May

The next Mota-vation race is 2 weeks on Thursday – 30th May – 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 contacting Alan Bowen. 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.


🏃‍♀️ 🍻 Social Run – Fringford – Thursday 23rd May 🏃🍷

Our next social run is on Thursday 23rd May & will replace the usual club session. We will meet outside the Butchers Arms White at 6:45pm. The route is 5 miles of mixed terrain.

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 focused on social so no pb’s, just a good opportunity to run somewhere different 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.
