Challenge 1: ‘Water’ Great 10k

During our 10,000km July challenge we’ll be asking you to do some mini-challenges. Some are simply fun, some might be a bit more, well, challenging.

The Evesham Town 10k water station provides welcome relief to runners as they pass by the beautiful Hampton Ferry twice during the route.

The first challenge is a simple one. Run 10k this weekend, but make it water themed in the most imaginative way you can and add a photo as a reply to our Facebook post or on your run in our Strava club.

Please do not do anything risky or dangerous around water!

There is some rain forecast, so you could just go for your wettest run ever, find the most beautiful lake or river you know, have part of the run around your garden while someone sprays a hose at you, set up your own fancy water station … whatever you can think of.

If you want to be hyper-accurate, our water stations are placed at 3.6km and 6.9km from the start.

Don’t forget, if you don’t use Strava you can submit your run here to be added to our total.

Restarting Efforts

We’re restarting Efforts Sessions this Wednesday, 24th June – but we can only offer sessions to limited numbers. 

To be fair to all members, we will be conducting a ballot to determine who can come to this first session.

How we manage future sessions will depend on demand this week, and how the evening goes.

You’ll need to enter the ballot before 7pm on Tuesday 23rd June.

We’re currently updating our risk assessment and the final details of how the sessions will be structured, and we’ll share all of this with you as soon as they’re complete.

It’s been a strange few months, but we hope you have been able to keep up with the running habit, and have kept safe and well. We’ be updating you again soon with details about social runs, the club’s AGM, committee structure and more over the coming weeks.

Best wishes

The EVRC Committee

Club runs cancelled

Tonight’s club run is cancelled, as are all official club runs / efforts sessions* until further notice.

We’re sorry to do this but in view of the government’s advice just now to avoid unnecessary social contact we’re going to suspend all official club activities, effective immediately.

There will be no club run tonight – please let people know who may not have seen this message.

This is obviously a fast-moving situation, and we will update you with more detail when we’ve had time to discuss what we should do next, but wanted to get this message out quickly ahead of tonight’s run.
