Many thanks to all those who volunteered for SRC's parkrun takeover on Saturday 13th January. We filled all the volunteer positions and oversaw Ashton Court's second biggest parkrun ever, with almost 600 runners braving the cold.
Congratulations to all the runners who completed the Bristol Half Marathon. 59 runners completed the course and we were also hugely oversubscribed with volunteers to man our station on Cumberland Road - thanks to all those who volunteered and congratulations to all the runners.
A reminder that we will not be meeting at the Southbank tonight - we are meeting in the small park at the beginning of the Towpath under the Cumberland Basin flyover (see Google Maps: http://bit.ly/2fHM13C).
11 Southvillers represented us in the Bath Half Marathon this weekend with a number recording personal bests and first ever halfs - congratulations everyone. Elsewhere, Mark Kemp was victorious at the Railway River Run and Jane Faram took the women's 2nd place in the Silverstone Half.
Congratulations to the Southvillers who tackled the 46 mile Green Man Ultramarathon earlier this month. An excellent Southville haul of silverware with Phil Richards winning the women's race, Mark Ducker taking bronze in the men's and Southville also taking home the team prize.
A record 64 Southvillers turned out on Sunday for the Great Bristol Half Marathon. Congratulations to all finishers, and also to Tony Myers and Jo Finkel (and anyone we've missed) who stood out in the rain to marshal and cheer us on.
28 Southvillers headed to Bathurst Estate in Cirencester for a full 24 hours of running through day and night and all kinds of terrain. We had two teams of eight, two of five and two amazing solos in Mark Ducker and James Miller who went through the entire 24 hours by themselves.
