A friendly running club based in Cirencester!

RSE Club Report – Christmas Puddings and the Grand Prix!

Bromham Pudding Run

The Pudding Run is a 10k race around the Wiltshire village of Bromham, close to the towns of Melksham, Devizes and Chippenham. The 2-lap circular course is flat and regularly produces PBs for runners of all abilities. Not only do the winners receive trophies all finishing runners receive both a medal and a Christmas Pudding!

Three club members ran for RSE:

  • Kevin Joynes-Creed – 1:02:54
  • Caroline Joynes-Creed – 1:02:55
  • Cheri Edwards – Time TBC

Well done everyone! Love the costume, Cheri!

Centurion Grand Prix

On a cold winter’s morning, it takes a little more motivation to run, and so Centurion Running Club host a series of 5 mile races – the Grand Prix of Solihull! The second race in the series followed a 2 and a half lap, multi-terrain, course around Babbs Mill Lake and surrounding park; this is also RSE club member, Dave Witnall’s home turf as a junior athlete . The races have a local, friendly vibe, and runners are entered into a free raffle at the end.

Running for RSE were Dave and Ellie Witnall, who completed the course in 31:17 (course PB) and 39:33 respectively!
