Bearbrook Running Club 30th birthday celebration!

The club will be 30 years-old later this year and we're planning to organise a party to celebrate this landmark. Our social committee is busy planning an evening event that will take place on Saturday, 25th October at the Spread Eagle Hotel in Thame. There will be a three-course meal, dancing and a live band. The dress code will be black tie or lounge suit and we plan to book a coach to take members to and from Rivets. Tickets will be £33 each (plus coach travel if required).
More details to follow...

Volunteers are urgently required for the Bearbrook 10k on Sunday 10th August. It's a great opportunity to help the club out and cheer on your fellow runners we need at least another 20 so please contact Steve Wickham if you can help 07934 475164.

The Ridgeway Challenge takes place on Saturday 23 August & Sunday 24 August, when competitors run the whole length of the Ridgeway from Ivinghoe Beacon to Avebury. Our club is responsible for the first checkpoint at Wendover on Saturday and, as in previous years, Linda Huxley is looking for volunteers to help on the day. As well as offering refreshments, the times and number of each runner is recorded.  The race has a 10am and 12noon start and as we co-ordinate the first checkpoint it can be very hectic. The checkpoint is open between 11.15am and 2.30pm. If you are able to help for part or all of the time please contact Graham Sanders on 07906 841944.


All are welcome to join. Please email Lisa Ripley at ripleylisa75@gmail.com, about our varied runs that are designed to suit runners of different abilities. See the Training Calendar for more details. Health and Safety risk assessment
