Summer Timed Handicap Race Series

A great fun member event with a touch of competitiveness where anyone could be the winner and win prizes! Races are over the same demanding course with runners setting off at staggered times depending on running ability; the slowest first and the fastest last with the aim that everyone finishes at roughly the same time. You will need to run 4 of the 6 races to complete the series and place in the overall series results. For those taking part and paying for the whole series, or volunteering in 4 or more races, there will be a commemorative gift.

Thursday 23 May • Thursday 30 May • Thursday 20 June • Thursday 27 June • Thursday 11 July • Thursday 25 July

Under year 7 junior race, 6pm in Victoria Park, £5 per person for the series
Year 7 and above junior and senior races, registration 6.30pm, first runner 7pm, £5 per person for the series

Membership renewal

2024 club membership was due on 1 January 2024. There is no admin fee to pay online via Racenation, and this is the preferred payment method as it simplifies the process, saving club volunteers time and admin work. There is also a new option to pay membership online in instalments via Klarna, available at the online checkout. Single senior equals £4.17 per month and less than £1 per week.

Membership fees go to the main club, to help cover clubhouse costs, such as insurance and bills, maintenance, facilities, equipment and minibus, and do not go to the individual rowing or running sections.

Our clubhouse bar needs you

The clubhouse is maintained run through club membership and income from the bar and it needs volunteers and customers!
Can you help with the bar? No experience necessary and on a rota basis usually once every 4ish weeks.

And on the other side of the bar the drinks are very well priced which make it an affordable night out compared to other venues, why not stay with your running buddies after your run or pop in for a drink on your night out you are more than welcome to bring in family and friends too.
