Wymeswold Running Club

 

Wymeswold RC

Wymeswold Running Club (WRC) meet on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6:30pm, at the bottom of The Stockwell. Everyone is welcome to join us, fast or slow.

From 5th April 2016 three NEW running groups will meet on Tuesdays. These groups will be for ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS, INTERMEDIATE and IMPROVERS. Everyone who runs or is interested in running with WRC are very welcome to come along.

Once we have established these Tuesday groups we'll look to add other dates/times, examples being Saturday morning and mid-week daytime runs.

On Thursdays there is only one group but feel free to come along and join in.

WRC's annual WADDLE (5 mile Road Race) and 2K Fun Run take place in May every year - Waddle Number 10 is on Sunday 8th May 2016. Club members take part in the "Duck Suit Challenge" for the Club Trophy - yes, that means racing in a Duck suit to be elligible. An entry form can be found on Wymeswold.com. 

The Club has an annual away trip. We've been to Berlin, Amsterdam, Edinburgh and Brussels: this year we are going to Munich (weekend of 8-10 October). If you want to come please contact Chris Taylor.

The Club has two big annual social events, a summer BarBQ and Christmas drinks. This year's summer BarBQ is on Saturday 18th June - Chris will be circulating details shortly.

We also have the annual BOB KING ROUND, a jaunt around the local pubs (jogging in between) on the evening of Tuesday 12th July. This annual "event" is very popular and a real laugh.
