From the Chairman

Welcome to the re-vamped website of Thame Runners, which I hope will encourage you to come along and join us on a run soon. We are a small club, with around 100 members, who meet to run three times each week in good weather and bad.

We pride ourselves on being a club that values the companionship of running with like-minded individuals in a friendly environment as much as running to win every race, appreciating that whilst it is running that brings us all together, it is the friendly atmosphere that keeps us together.

We run around the well lit streets of Thame through the winter months, and then during British Summer Time we take to the local countryside. On Mondays we run from our Thame headquarters into the immediate countryside; on Wednesdays we meet to run from a series of local pubs within the catchment area of most of our members and take the opportunity to socialise afterwards. Members take it in turn to organise these runs, so we have the chance to experience many different types of environment and terrain.

We try to cater for the differing needs of our members, with speed training sessions mixed with middle distance and marathon training. We have members who focus on short track races, and some who live for marathons and ultras, with a range of abilities from national and county standard to those whose running is exclusively in order to keep fit and run with friends. All of the above intermingled with a number of social events, both formal and informal.

Please feel free to turn up at the Racquets Fitness Centre in Thame’s Old Cattle market on a Monday or Wednesday evening and enjoy a run in our company. We look forward to meeting you soon.

Howard Papworth Chairman,

Thame Runners
