Weekly Update 15th April

Please note that we will be switching to the summer routes from tomorrow.


Our annual London Marathon Pasta party is this Friday 19th April at the Finchampstead Sports Club. We'll aim to get there for around 6.30 to eat from 7pm. It’s an opportunity to catch up with other members and of course our runners taking part in the London marathon on Sunday. It is a relaxed event for all the family so please bring everyone along. It would be great if we can get as many as possible to make a tasty pasta dish to share. Please let Sarah know if you are able to attend and if you are able to make something so that all will be catered for. (Please keep your receipts if you cook something as we can then reimburse you.)

As you will have seen from another Sarah emails (we will really miss her when she steps down), our annual Awards dinner is on Saturday 18th May - 7.30 pm at The Ship Inn, 104 Peach Street, Wokingham. These events are always great fun so please let Sarah know if you can come ASAP please.

It’ really is time to renew your club membership forms if you haven’t already. Please can you get them in ASAP please.

Our Woodland 5 series of races is the club's main fundraiser and we need as many of you as possible to turn up and help us run the event.

The dates for your diary are:

Wednesday 22nd May

Wednesday 26th June

Wednesday 31st July


The race starts at 7:30pm in Crowthorne .  We'll be chasing up for commitments closer to the time, but please mark in your diary, and let Simon Crute know when you can help. We normally have a few kids along to help out marshalling too so that's not an excuse!


Finchampstead Society is arranging a Finchampstead Freshers Fayre at 7.30pm on Thursday 25th April at Finchampstead Memorial Hall.  The Society are looking to showcase as many local organisations, societies, clubs etc. from Finchampstead as possible. We’re looking for volunteers for the evening to promote the club. Please let me know if you’re interested.


We will have a stall at the Wokingham May Fayre on 6th May. We’re looking to promote the club and get some new members on board. It would be great if you could spare some time to help us sell the club to potential new runners. Please let me know if you can help out.


Our AGM will be on Thursday 16th May. More info in due course but please put the date in the diary so that you can have a say in the running of your running club.


The Wessex Relay is Sunday 19th May (not 15th as previously advised). A lot was fun was had last year. The club will fund your entry. More info in due course about the arrangement of teams etc.



We plan to attend the Love Life Love Running weekend which is 20th/ 21st July this year. It is a fantastic weekend of camping, running, drinking & eating and is very family orientated. More details to follow but thought you ought to get in your diaries.
