New club kit

Over the last few months the committee has been looking to refresh our club kit to take advantage of the new style sublimation printed tops that are available today.

Our classic design has been given a bit of a face lift. The main elements of the current design have been kept with a few new additions that hopefully add a more modern feel to the shirts.

Club Sports Day 2018

After the success of last year's event, I have provisionally booked Archway School field for Sunday 24 June for this year's Club Sports Day! We are going a little earlier this year to avoid clashes in the Juniors' racing timetable and hopefully to enjoy some good mid-summer weather. We now need a small team of volunteers to plan and organise . We want to attract all age-groups and have events that all members will enjoy, including a Silver Kilometre and Silver Mile with medals for all participants.

Kerrin Cocks shines in the Irene Ultra in South Africa - 8th April

Stroud AC runners travel all around the world to indulge in their passion for running. Predictably Kerrin Cocks was the only Stroud runner at Sundays Irene Ultra (South Africa).  In the blistering heat of 30 degrees, she ran 30 miles to finish in a fantastic time of 4h 34. Kerrin reported that she was "Sunburnt, knackered but very happy".  Well done Kerrin, we are all in awe of your performance and we hope you are relaxing now and enjoying your holiday.
