Cotswold Way Association

I am delighted to confirm that Club has today become an affiliated member of the Cotswold Way Association after approval at this month's Committee meeting.  This charity was established a couple of years ago to ensure that this popular National Trail does not fall into disrepair due to lack of funding. To  date its projects include installing handrails and steps on tricky sections of the path, replacing stiles with gates, improving drainage at kissing gates and repairing a well used seat.

Stroud Trail races

We have been contacted by the Hop, Skip and Jump respite care organisation to offer our members the opportunity to raise money by running any of the Stroud Trail events for them. 

Hop, Skip and Jump are the chosen Charity for these events and they would love to see some Stroud runners supporting them.

If you commit to raise money and run for them then you will get a FREE entry into either the Trail Quarter, Half or Marathon.

New Club Member Benefit

Membership Benefit

It was agreed at the last race committee meeting to provide all paid up members of Stroud AC 24-hour early access to enter the Frampton 10k as a trial for 2019. If it is successful, then we will look at making this a ongoing benefit for club members.

Welcome to our new and extensive Runners Race Diary!

Mike Dorey took inspiration from the google race diary we already have on our website and felt there was an opportunity to develop the idea further and create a totally comprehensive list of races which would appeal to the many!
