Unfortunately one of our scheduled Club Championship races, the Devizes 10K, has been cancelled for 2017.
Luckily we have found an alternative chip-timed 10K on the same day (March 19th). The Calne Rotary 10km Charity Fun Run takes place in the grounds of Bowood House and is run on mixture of tarmac, trail and grass. Please note that there are two entry types available, one with a medal and t-shirt and one without either so you have some flexibility on keeping the price low if you so wish.
The schedule of races has been updated so get your entries in and we look forward to seeing a lot of you there.
Following an email we have received from a Corsham resident where a runner in Corsham narrowly avoided being struck by a car in a poorly lit area, could we remind you that when out running at this time of year to wear some Hi Viz clothing, lights or anything that will make you visible to others. Like your family and friends we at Corsham Running Club want you to Be Seen & Be Safe.
All sessions will start and end at Springfield Community Campus so please try and arrive for 18:50 ready for 18:55 briefing and a prompt 19:00 start for all sessions.
The training schedule for this week is as follows (group leaders may change subject to their availability):
Please also see our full training schedule here. A fuller description of what each training session involves can also be found at the foot of the page. Route plans that correspond to the training sessions can be found here.
It looks like our members have been racking up the miles this weekend!
Huge congratulations to Alison Graham who won silver in her age category and the South West Inter-Counties XC Championships at Exeter racecourse. A well deserved reward for all of her hard work. It seems like Wiltshire had quite a few medals in different categories so our congratulations go out to all team members. Provisional results are available here.
Congratulations also to David Mackie who took part in the Rough’N’Tumble who knocked 13 minutes and 80 places off of his previous result. Indeed a great start to the year!
There were a number of ad-hoc runs organised on the club Facebook group for this weekend:
Slaughterford9 route social group run
OverTheHills route social group run
12 mile steady road run around Corsham and the surrounding areas
More and more weekend runs are being organised so please do keep an eye on the Facebook group to see if there is anything that you would like to join in with.
Lastly, well done to everyone who got out for a run this weekend regardless of distance or pace!
Happy New Year and welcome to our new look Corsham Running Club website and public Facebook page.
