Following last Fridays successful awards night the full list of award winners is set out below.

We will shortly be adding Hayleys and Darrens presentations to the this topic as well.

Vacancy for Club Secretary - applications welcome!

As mentioned at AGM we have a vacancy for Club Secretary to join our vibrant committee at an exciting time for the Club as we move towards becoming a CIO. This is a voluntary role and we meet once a month. Please let me know if you are interested and I will be happy to chat through and provide more info with a job description. 

VLM 2020 Charity Places available

We have been approached by the Spring Centre who have 2 marathon places available for runners willing to raise funds on their behalf. 

They are a local charity that supports families in Gloucestershire with children and young adults with special needs and disabilities. The London Marathon is a great source of funds for them as they are not funded by local authority or government and rely on donations and sponsorships to continue to provide day care services.

VLM 2020 Club ballot

Congratulations to Alan Price and Mike Stevenson who have won our two Club ballot places. Rob Case is the reserve. We had 26 applicants and 4 names were drawn but unfortunately one did not meet published eligibility rules. We will now apply to EA for our places and the winners will be notified when they can register. 

Stroud Half Marathon

Can I just say a huge thank you to everyone who worked so hard over the weekend (in some awful weather on Saturday!) to put on the race and to give the runners such a great experience. The Race Committee, led by Chris Bourne, the team from Immortal Sport and all the helpers from the Club did a fantastic job. I have also had some great feedback about the support and good humoured encouragement from all the marshals who helped to made the race safe and fun and the refreshments were superb! Thank you all, you did the Club proud!
