Mob Match

This years Mob Match is next Friday, 19th July. This is an event where all the local clubs in the area compete against one another, last year we finished in 3rd place only beaten by Bristol & West and Southville - clubs with a much bigger membership than us!

The race is 10k held on the towpath underneath the suspension bridge. There are no limits on numbers, you only need to be capable of running 10k and have a Bitton vest! The mob match is this year’s RO8 starting race. We need as many club members as possible to attend this event. It is a flat and fast 10k course with PB potential. You run 5k out along the towpath underneath the Suspension bridge and 5k back. The event is paid for by the club and there is no need to pre-register, just turn up in plenty of time for the team photograph!

Further information regarding the race can be found on the GWR Towpath race page here.

Club vests

The club rules state that you should wear your club vest in all competitive races. Exceptions can be made for example if running for charity but only if you inform the committee at least 14 days in advance. Now the important bit - If you run without a vest then you effect the results of your club mates and this is unfair. Even if you dont intend to compete in the club championship or race of 8 you still effect the scores of those who do.   If you don't wear your vest for whatever reason then it's your responsibility to ensure that the website admins know this. You can tell any committee member or Rich Kershaw ( website admin) it's also important to enter your club name when entering races, it makes it much easier for website admins to find your results
