Selected Events 2017

Here are the events that we're trying to get the club out in strength for in 2017, not just quick runners to have a go at team prizes, but everyone for some enjoyable competition and the fun of being there in big numbers.  There will be other events you’ll want to enter, and few runners will want to do all of them, but hopefully you’ll enjoy joining your clubmates at some of them!

Free club transport will be provided for the Bristol 10, Welsh Castles Relay, Tamar Trails Parkrun and the Stickler.
