Thanks to everyone who joined us for the summer Fire Station Run, which took place on Thursday 2nd August. Both runs started and ended at Stow Fire Station, with refreshments afterwards at the Fire Station. Both runs were well supported, including members of the North Cotswold Tri and Run who joined us. Particular thanks go to Ian and Niamh Shoemark for arranging everything.

Thanks to everyone who joined us for a trail run on Sunday 29th July at South Cerney, for aprroximately 10k. We met at the Gateway Cafe GL7 5TL (next door to Cotswold Outdoor). Despite a little rain, Graham led the group, with Linda acting as the tail runner. Following the run we had coffee and cake (and breakfast for some).

Photo Library

The Photo Library has been transferred to the Club Archive page, although are a few more photos within recent race reports.

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.
