Well done to everyone who has been sporting an Alchester vest in various races over the last 7 days – just a few to choose from!

Another busy week, details of everything below.


Social Run – Lower Heyford – Thursday 1st June

Our next social run is on Thursday 1st June & will replace the usual club session. We will meet outside the Bell pub in Lower Heyford (OX25 5NY) at 6:50pm. The route is 10k mixed terrain but mainly off road.

If you plan to attend please email social@alchester-runningclub.co.uk 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.

Parking is limited in Heyford so please share lifts if possible. Arrive at 6:50pm for a prompt 7pm start.

Bring some spare clothes and see you in the pub garden afterwards for a drink.

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