New Club 5k Road Race a Step Closer to Reality

24 Dec

Club Chairman and Race Director of the Club’s new 5k Road Race Roger Brocklesby received some welcome news earlier this week when a representative from South Gloucestershire Council confirmed that the Council has no objections to the proposed route for the new race which will be based from the DW Fitness First Centre at Filton. Roger can now press ahead with the course measurement, finalising the risk assessment and securing a licence for the race from UK Athletics. ‘I am already advanced with the planning but now Council permission has been secured I can press ahead to ensure that all the official paperwork is in place as soon as possible. I am still aiming for a trial event on Tuesday 30th January 2018 followed by the first proper race on Tuesday 27th February 2018.’ Roger said.

The name of the new race is – as yet – undecided so if you fancy entering a competition for a free entry to the race please let us know by 1st January 2018 your idea for a race name via e-mail to
