Alchester 5k – Your Club Needs You!

On the evening of Wednesday 14th August, the club hosts its annual 5k race in Marsh Gibbon. For further information go to: Alchester Running Club Events

To ensure that this event is a success, we need the help of all of our club members, family and friends. Any profit made goes to charity and back into the club to help our membership fees stay low.

We need around 40 marshals – so please let Mike Fisher know if you (or a family member / friend) can help.

Remember if you want to enter the London Marathon ballot at the end of the year, then you need to have volunteered for the club at least once – so now’s your opportunity!

The race is fast, flat, and sold out in 2023 so if you want to run then go to: Alchester 5k 2024 Entry

Please note Run Britain has updated its entry system to Sport80, so you will need to sign up the first time you use it.



A fantastic turnout at Motavation at Charlton last week.

Some fantastic runs & really excellent performances from so many people. It was great that faces we hadn’t seen in a while were out racing. Good to have you back on the good ship Alchester.
