Vacancy on Committee

We are looking for a person to take on the role of Secretary for the club from January.  If you are interested, please let me know and I can tell you a bit about the role and what is involved.

We are also looking for someone to help with the website – if you have the skills needed and would like to help out, please let me know.

The AGM will be held this year on Thursday 7th January 2021.  It will be a virtual meeting via Zoom.  Everyone is welcome to join in and have their say.  If you would like to  attend, please send me an email to and when I have set up the meeting, I will send you an invite.  Please put ‘AGM’ in the title of the email so I can spot it.  Thanks!


I hope that we will be able to run again in our groups in January.  The first run back will hopefully be 5th January.  However, things move quickly at the moment so please keep an eye on the website and newsletter to see what is happening.


As this will be the last newsletter of 2020, I’d like to thank you for your support in this very strange year.  Thank you to the Lead Runners for volunteering and enabling us to run two groups at most paces on a Tuesday night.  We couldn’t do it without you!   It’s difficult to know what 2021 will bring us but hopefully back into some ‘normal’ club runs and races before too long.

Wishing you all a safe Christmas and a Happy and Healthy 2021.
