Alchester Weekly Update – 11/07/2022

Hi,

We hope you all had a good weekend.

 

Social Run - Thursday 14th July

The next summer social run is from Fringford Village Hall OX27 8DY.  The run is approximately 10k and mainly off road. If you plan to attend please email social@alchester-runningclub.co.uk so we have a rough idea of numbers and groups.  Everyone is more than welcome. The weather looks hot so we will take it easy. The run is focused on social so no pbs, just a good opportunity to run somewhere different and have a chat.  The route is mixed with footpaths, gravel tracks and a wooded section. We will have drinks afterwards at the Butchers Arms pub.  Even if you're not running feel free to join us at 8pm for a drink. Please bring some spare clothes and plenty of water. Arrive at 6:45pm for a prompt 7pm start. Please note this will replace the usual Thursday club session.

Looking forward to seeing you all.

Hi,

Thanks to everyone who helped out at Bicester Parkrun on Saturday and well done to all those who raced at Combe I last Thursday (a perfect evening for running!).

 

Social Run - Thursday 14th July

The next social run will be on Thursday 14th July and will replace our normal Thursday night club-run.

We will be running from a different location at a nearby village. For those who haven't been to the social runs before they are very relaxed, we run in groups of similar ability and the focus is social not speed.

Venue to be confirmed

 

 

Oxford University Parks parkrun - Saturday 9th July

Join us on this Saturday at Oxford University parkrun at "The Parks" - https://www.parkrun.org.uk/universityparks/ After the run we will go to a local cafe for a drink.  For those that fancy the train goes at 07:39 from Bicester Village station.  The park is just over one mile from Oxford station so a slow jog or walk will get you to the start in plenty of time.  Alternatively the bus drops you very close. 

We'll meet at the start from 8:45.

Alchester Weekly Update – 27/06/2022

Hi,

Well done to everyone who ran at the Ridgeway Relay yesterday. Special thanks to Andy Stickley for all his efforts and the 3 team captains for their support (Annelies Henshall, Graham Grieve & Jonathan White)

Bicester parkrun Saturday 2nd July

Usually once a year we give the Bicester parkrun marshals a welcome break and take on their roles. It's a way of letting other parkrunners know about us, who we are, where me meet, what we do as well as giving us an opportunity to let people know of the races we hold.

Despite saying we'd give the usual gang a welcome break Katy has kindly volunteered for the 250th and some (lost count!) time to co-ordinate marshals so please reply to Bicester@parkrun.com

We'll need the following roles for this Saturday

  • Timekeeper
  • Finish token hander out
  • Barcode scanner (can run the barcode scan)
  • Pacers - 30 minutes to 40 minutes x 4
  • 2 more marshals

Oxford University Parks parkrun - Saturday 9th July

Hi All,

Quite a few bits this week with some duplication from last week but worth re-sharing, especially the social run this Thursday.

Social Run - Thursday 16th June - Great Western Arms

The next social run is this Thursday at the Great Western Arms, Aynho (OX17 3BP).  The run is 6.2 miles or if you prefer there's a walk-jog option available. If anybody wants to lead this group please let us know.

If you plan to attend, please email social@alchester-runningclub.co.uk so we have a rough idea of numbers.


The run is focused on social so no pb's, just a good opportunity to run somewhere different and have a chat. The route is mixed with canal footpaths gravel tracks and a small road section.

We will be going for a drink afterwards in the pub where we have reserved an outside area.

Please car share where possible, arrive at 6.45pm for a prompt 7pm start.

Please note this will replace the usual Thursday club session.

Alchester Weekly Update – 30/05/2022

Hi,

Well done to everyone who’s raced over the past week. Some excellent performances at Banbury 5, Motavation where it was good to see a good turnout on a cool "summer” evening and Deddington.

Social Run – Thursday 16th June

The next social run will be on Thursday 16th June and this will replace our normal Thursday night club run.

We will be running from a different location at a nearby village. For those who haven’t been to the social runs before they are very relaxed, we run in groups of similar ability and the focus is social not speed.

Venue to be confirmed

Local Races Update

  • The Otmoor Challenge on 11th June has been cancelled for "safety reasons”
  • Next Motavation is on Thursday 30th June
  • For other races take a look at www.oxonraces.com

Club this week

  • Tuesday as normal from Whitelands – 18:50 for a 19:00 start
  • Thursday has been cancelled for this week only – as it’s the Jubilee bank holiday we’ve taken the decision not to have a club night this Thursday however if keen to run with someone else on Thursday either reply to this email or post on Facebook. Can’t promise but it’s worth the question

Jubilee Special

For a bit of fun why not challenge yourself with a Jubilee run, walk or ride (bike or horse). The Queen has been on the throne for 70 years so 7k, 7 miles, 70k (!!) you choose. Run walk wherever you like but consider street names such as Queens Avenue, Queens Crescent, Kings End, Jubilee Lake, The Kings Arms, Kings Avenue, Buckingham Road, George Street, Anniversary Avenue etc.

Be as creative as you can and name it on Strava "Alchester Jubilee.” Bonus points for photos and fancy dress.

Good luck and enjoy the bank holiday weekend
