Club Race Calendar 2017
The race club calendar list events where the club will be represented by quite a few members. If you are a new member – please don’t be shy! Get involved with races – it’s a great way to get to know other members.
An explanation of the event type is below the list of events.
Park Run, register once and print your bar code. Turn and run. Show your finishing tag and bar code to the marshal at the end. The Club takes part in the Park Run on the 1st Saturday of the Month, and usually meets afterwards for Coffee and Breakfast.

As a club member you are able to take part in the local club time trials and open events. There are events held during the Summer season on Tuesday night at Wolvey, and Thursday night at Six Hills. They are a fast timed 10 mile route – really beneficial to improve your speed.
The club will be organising a number of informal training sessions to get you comfortable with the idea of Time Trials. Ask Tiffany Mackness about them.
Keep checking back as we will add more events (running, triathlon, cycling, social) as the year goes on!
