Calling for a Great BRJ Bake off to support this weekend’s Duathlon.

Frankie who is the Fundraising Officer for the club has asked all you brilliant bakers out there to get baking and bring along cakes that we can sell to raise money for our BRJ charity Marie Curie Cancer Care. The money we raise will help fund a Marie Curie nurse for local people...Read more

The financial year just finished saw us support the Alzheimer's Society as our charity of the year and we raised an amazing £5767.04 through a series of fund raising events, dressing up at nuns etc. I believe this is the most the club has ever raised for it's charity. So well done to everyone.

As our juniors go from strength to strength they are starting to enjoy some really successful runs and triathlons, winning events and getting podium finishes, which is great. It rewards all their efforts at training and inspires both themselves and the other juniors. Success is infectious.
