Stroud Half Marathon – 27th October

As usual, we ask that any member not planning to run should offer their services as a marshal.

The Club also requests that any member planning to run should provide a replacement to help on the day – preferably as a marshal. Please remember that without the Half Marathon our membership fees would need to increase.
