Thursdays - Main Club Night

Thursdays - Main Club Night

This is the main gathering of the week and there can be anything from 50 up to even 100 people turning up - most of them come to run, but a few may come just for the social evening. We meet at Hawker Leisure in Lower Ham Road (just off Richmond Road), where anyone in Stragglers kit will show you where you can leave your kit, tell you what's going on, and help you to find someone to run with.

We divide up into informal groups to run their desired distance and pace. There is also a structured training group for those with specific goals. Richmond Park is the most popular destination but there is an infinite number of routes in the parks, along the river, or round the local streets in Richmond, Twickenham and Teddington.

At the Thursday run we have changing and shower facilities at Hawker Leisure, and we then meet for a drink in the bar. At 9.30 our Club Captain Phil Davies gets up on a chair to yell "Your attention please for some brief announcements", the rest of us joining  in to emphasise the word brief. You might not think that a series of administrative announcements could turn into a session of banter and heckling but it does.
