Loose Canon Brewery Tour - This is a bit different to some of the other events which people post in this group, but, some of us have been discussing a club night to the very popular Loose Canon Brewery in Abingdon for one of their tours. £15 per head gets you a brief tour, unlimited ale (there is something for everyone), a free pint or half pint glass and sausage & chips (veg option available). 

The next tour is on Tuesday 18th October at 7pm and finishes at 21:30 and there are still plenty of spaces available. I am already booked on so if anyone would like to join me, please contact me and I'll let you know further details/how to book. There is also information on the Loose Canon website. contact Simon woods on the facebook page or message who will pass the message on.

Dear All, Cross Country details have been announced.

The venues are more local to us this season which should allow more of our runners to take part in this awesome winter event. Check out the link for more information on the league  If you are interested in having your name down for cross country, send me a message and I will add you to the team sheets. This year it is even more important to let me know your interests and it will not be so easy to 'turn up and run' - See the club website for Cross Country information  

Kind regards Theresa and Andrew

 Congratulations to our runners that tackled this race at the weekend, a great turn out, with Sian coming in as First lady. Well done to those that ran a PB too on this course, with great encouragement from runners and supporters it was a race to remember. A thank you to Geoff too for baking Viennese whirls (or Vienesse Waltz as the compère was saying) they were delicious, followed by a lovely social meal afterwards to talk tactics for the last championship race-Oxford Half.  Results can be found

Beginners - same time, same place next week

A big welcome to all the beginners that came to the first session last night, it was a really great turn out and we hoped you all enjoyed the session (and that you don't ache too much this morning).  Everyone put in a brilliant effort on the 'magic mile'. 

If you couldn't make it for the first week, don't worry, print off the form and bring it along with you to the next session and let the run leaders know you will be coming.

The first step is always the hardest and that's the one that gets you out of the door. Well done to you all. See you all next week.
