Social Events

We have a number of social events during the year including the Christmas presentation evening, Annual Dinner and often some new member evenings.

Christmas Presentation Evening and V50 Challenge – 13th December

The Christmas Presentation Evening – AKA Squares Night after the prize draw at the end of the night – will be at the Water Sports Centre on 13th December.

The race starts in Lady Bay just near Skylarks at 7pm. If you are running, you need to be  at HP from 6:30pm to get your race number and be ready to walk / jog down to the start. This annual challenge race was started many years ago when Bernard Jarvis unearthed a piece of research which suggested that a senior lady ought to be of a similar standard to  a V50 man. We’ve been putting it to the test every year since in a variety of formats. It  now takes the form of a 5K race around Lady Bay.

After the V50 Challenge there is time to grab a quick shower, before we all meet in the bar for a social evening. There will be the presentation evening, where certificates will be given for club records on all distance road races.

There is also an opportunity for those of you that was unsuccessful in the London Marathon Ballot, to put your rejection email into a raffle for the three club places.

Finally, we have the drawing of the raffle from the Squares sales. Half the money raised from the squares sold goes to our chosen charity (local charity yet to be agreed). The other half is used to purchase the raffle prizes. So make sure to buy some squares – tickets will be sold most Mondays and Thursdays before club runs.
