Welcome

 

Tewkesbury AC was founded initially in 1983 and then officially affiliated to the Midland Counties in 1984, we changed our name to Tewkesbury Running Club in 2015 to better reflect what we actually do... running.

 

We have over 100 members of all ages, abilities and running styles. You don't need to live in Tewkesbury to join the club - many members travel from as far as Ledbury, Gloucester, Cheltenham, Pershore and numerous small villages nearby.

 

Centred around social enjoyment and keeping fit, many of us enjoy a bit of healthy competition and some still yearn to nail that seemingly elusive Parkrun PB.

 

We regularly enter teams into local and regional events of varying distances (the Gloucestershire county championships & the Cotswold Way Relay) and there are often members at races further afield in the UK and beyond. We dabble in the odd Triathlon, Duathlon, Ultra and a few muddy challenges.

 

Life is short, running makes it seem longer!

  • January

Our first Member of the Month of 2023 is someone who has never received the esteemed award before... Tracy Tailford has recently become one of our most prolific club runners, not just joining the evening sessions but also teaming-up for the weekend runs. Just this last Saturday, she took on a half-marathon distance as a training run, entering new realms with mutual support from the club. January saw her helping the Ladies team in the XC at the Cotswold Farm Park and indeed she has bravely ventured into the Gloucestershire XC league - something completly new to her. Already a popular member of the club, Tracy’s quiet and smiley demeanour hides a determination whilst running that is resulting in some fine and notably improved performances. One to watch in 2023 as the seeds of consistent training are being sown. Congratulations Tracy - our MotM for January.
