Club Championship Parkruns and 2018

2017 is already our most successful year for entrants in club championship races with over 200 to date and a few races to go. 

The ladies championship is wide open with a decent number of possible victors and the gents appears to be coming down to a battle of our speedy veterans Pete Allen and Alan ‘Rex’ Kember. Pete has been leading the whole year but Alan is tracking his prey like a mighty Tyrannosaurus. 

Just to note: The club championship tables on the website will not be updated after Over the Hills. We’ll leave Bromham, 2x Parkrun, Half and Full Marathon off and the winners will be announced at the AGM. 

2 of the races remaining are the best of 3 Parkruns. One will be the graduation of our current Beginners section around the end of November. 

The 2nd one, I am pleased to announce is going to be the inaugural Melksham Parkrun. It has been over a year since the local council gave approval for a Parkrun in Melksham and the final hurdle has been overcome so the first one is imminent. We will let you know the date when it has been confirmed.

The committee have started looking at races for 2018, Slaughterford 9 will definitely be on there so make sure you sign up when it becomes available.  

It has been decided to drop Bromham from the 2018 schedule due to difficulty to get in for some, the rising cost and we have 4 Road 10k races. It was nearly removed from 2017 but hung on and its time is up. 

So does anyone have a suggestion for a race to end the year with? It probably needs to be within about 20 miles. Please email me or message me through Facebook or speak to me on a club night and I’ll collate responses. 

And finally, if there are any other races you’ve done which you think should be considered, we’re always looking to keep the championship fresh so let me know. 

Committee will sign off at their November meeting so please let me know by the end of this month. 

Thanks all,
