Welcome to Bourton Roadrunners Website

Bourton Roadrunners' Members' Library

We have a library of club newletters and past results from our club races.   Our latest newsletter, March 2017, is available as a PDF (portable document files) to download.  We have transferred the Newsletter library of back-issues to a separate page to make it easier for you to select the one you want.

Catch up on our recent race reports and the back-library of reports.

We have a few new additions to our Club Kit range; check-out the range.

Bourton Roadrunners are very proud that one of their runners, Susan Hunt, has qualified to run for an England Masters team in 2017 at the marathon distance from her performance last week in the Chester Marathon. The team will be picked from the 5 specific marathons of Bournemouth, Chester, Yorkshire, Brighton and Greater Manchester from the autumn of 2016 till April 2017 and those selected will be notified later this year.

We are starting to put together a comprehensive members' photo library, representing the activities, achievements and history of Bourton Roadrunners. If you are able to contribute to this photographic collection please let us know. In the meantime, visit the library and enjoy what we have made available. Robin Macdonald has recently supplied a couple of photographs from the 1998 Bourton 15 mile race, featuring a young Richard Bufton and Dennis Abbotts.

We are collating the data to enable us to build a member-focused library, recording club records, competition winners and a 'hall of fame', recording the many representative honours that club members have achieved since the club was formed. At the time of writing we are trying to locate the official record book.

For those of you wishing to track the progress of Dr Kate Evans, who heads the charity Elephants for Africa, can read the latest edition of their newsletter - Elephant Tails - or read their blog. Kate and her partner Simon trained with us last year, mainly through the cold winter months pior to emigrating to Botswana, are currently experiencing high temperatures and are longing for the rains! As they note, it is not only the humans that feel it, the elephants are all looking a little skinny and a little hot under the collar, the rains will bring the fresh grasses they need to bulk up again.
