We have a wide range of club competitions, find out about each one below.
Mike Cloke Memorial Handicap
The aim of the Thursday Night Handicap is to give each runner the opportunity to test their current training levels against the clock over a set distance. Each runner is given a handicap time and sets off at intervals according to this time from 19:00hrs. Following the handicap all runners will be able to reflect on their performance to assess their future training needs, which can be discussed with any of our qualified coaches.

Conceived by Spin, a former Club Chairman, the awards aim to reward runners for their racing achievements. Target times have been set for various distances for four levels of achievement – designated Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum – for all age groups. It isn’t possible to scan every list of race results and match runners times with an achievement award, so please claim your award by submitting your official race time via Heather Allen.
You will be awarded a certificate presented by a club representative in the pub. Presentations usually take place in the pub every quarter following the Thursday Handicap. Dates are announced in advance so you don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy the support and applause of your fellow runners.
