Thame Runners

Social Events and Activities

As a club we provide a variety of opportunities not only to run together and compete in local races, but to meet up after training runs, or at our regular social events and also on social media. We seek not only to encourage our members to support each other in attaining their running goals, but also to build new friendships.

During the summer months we do a trail run each Wednesday from a wide variety of local pubs and many runners stay behind for a drink afterwards and as winter approaches we will be starting a series of monthly social evenings.

Monthly Social Evenings

The club social evenings take place on Wednesday’s following the club run, starting at 8:15pm; even if you can’t make the run make sure you come to the social if you are able.

We meet in the upstairs bar at Racquets, and will have a short talk or discussion on a club or running related topic for 20-30 minutes at 8:30pm then a chance to chat afterward if you wish. This is a great opportunity to get to know people better and contribute to some of the club’s new ideas.

Dates and topics planned

Wed October 3rd 8:15pm Racquets Bar – Focus on winter training plans and how we can keep variety and motivation up during the dark evenings. We welcome new ideas!

Wed November 7th 8:15pm Racquets Bar – Club Kit Evening. We will have samples of the new club training kit to try on, you can order your competition shirts and we’ll even have some special offers on the night

Christmas Curry Night – Friday 14th December

We will once again be having our club Christmas celebration at Chinnor Indian Cuisine on Friday 14th December at 7pm.
