Your club needs you – Hazelbury Hurrah!

Hazelbury Hurrah! really needs your help on Friday 12th July.

Without volunteers the event, which is raising funds for the Club, Cotswold Volunteer Wardens and SSAFA (The Armed Forces Charity), is a non-starter and we still have roles to fill. So if you are free some or all of the time between 5pm and 9pm please and think you can help, please, please drop a line to hazelburyhurrah@corshamrunningclub.co.uk.

We are running the fun run from 6pm, the Junior race from 6:30 and the main event from 7:15.

You don’t have to help with all 3, if you’re racing the main event then please help with the first 2, if you’re watching your children in either of the first 2, then please help with the main race.

And don’t forget to ask. friends/family/neighbours or anyone else who you think may be able to help.

Weekly Review – Week Ending 21st April

It’s the calm before the storm.

We had 15 runners at the Good Friday 10 miler in Chippenham on a glorious day for running. Some smashing results led home by Tom Frost in 1:04:24. There were PBs for Lois Norcott (1:33:59), Katharine Burrett (1:35:44) and Lauren Edwards (1:18:16).

But most importantly, there were Easter Eggs for all.

Annika Davidson completed the Helmsley 10K in 50:47, another one of those races with a mug in the goody bag.

Of course, next Sunday sees the Corsham 10K and 2K fun run. Good luck to all of those running it. We’re looking forward to welcoming all the runners and an army of volunteers. It’s never too late to volunteer.

And details have been released of our new beginners running course, we’ve had many successful courses over the last couple of years and many of those members are still with us and still improving.

It’s a fun friendly course to take you from couch to 5K in a group environment and with much encouragement along the way. If you’re interested or know someone who may be then get in contact. Details on the poster.

Weekly Review – Week Ending 23rd December

The only racers this week were the Mackies (and Willow the dog) who did the FREE Clumber Park 10k in Nottinghamshire.

However we’ve been keeping active with the Chippenham Darkrun on Wednesday.

Thursday saw the annual Christmas lights run and caroling led by Jane Clarke. 3 miles of lights, singing and ending at a pub.

Then Friday was the Monkton Farleigh Full Moon run. A new route and a new pub.

If you’re not at Castle Combe today then Corsham Running Club would like to wish you a merry Christmas.

We’ve got a lot going on in August culminating in our new race; the Hazelbury Hurrah! If you’re available then get signed up to help or race.
