London Marathon Coach

The 2016 London Marathon club coach has now been booked and as with previous years the cost of a seat, one way only will be a nominal £5 per head. We have booked a 33 seater for this year and seats will be allocated on a first come, first served basis allocating to club members first. If we have seats remaining we will happily allow non club members to travel with us. The coach will leave the club at 7am sharp so please arrive by 6:45 am to ensure you are boarded and ready to go by the departure time.

If you wish to travel up on the coach please reply to our forum thread -> here <- to be sure of securing your seat.

Grand Prix 2016-2017 Fixtures 1-6

Whilst we still have the final GP fixture of the current season to come, the Grand Prix organisers are now in a position to announce the first batch of fixtures for the coming season. In an effort to help you all plan your race diaries, we’ve got this announcement out as early as possible.

As ever, we’ve tried to keep things varied, with a selection of road and off-road races, with a preference towards smaller, local run events. However, we have thrown in a bigger race – the Ealing Half Marathon – an altogether slightly bigger affair. We have secured three free entries to this race. Once the race has sold out (which it tends to do in August), three entrants will be chosen at random and they will each receive a full refund of their entry fee from the race organisers. 

The first six fixtures are…

Date Race Club Championship?
1st June 2016 Club One Mile Championship – Kingsmeadow One Mile
19th June 2016 Ranelagh Harriers Richmond 10k 10k
29th July Wedding Day 7k n/a
11th September Second Sunday Five n/a
25th September Ealing Half Marathon n/a
15th October 2016 TBC Surrey League Cross Country Fixture One n/a

If you have any races you’d like to see in the second half of the season, do feel free to post up on the new forum.

Does something look different?

Hang on a minute…is something different around here? Did you change your hair? 

Please don’t adjust your computer screens! Our website has indeed changed.

We have upgraded to a new version that will hopefully be much easier for everyone to use and will definitely be easier for us to administer. For the tech-inclined we have moved from Joomla to WordPress. For the non-tech minded, look how pretty the new website is!

Over the weekend we have reset all user passwords. If you have not received your reset e-mail, please do let us know and we will sort it out for you. You can use either the public forum or contact form to get in touch.

If you have any suggestions about the new website, please do let us know. We want to know about ideas for new content, anything that isn’t working or anything that you feel is missing since we upgraded. Why not try posting your feedback in the new forum?

We hope you enjoy using the new site. Please come back regularly!
