The change of Thursday evening training sessions from Fifth Road to Newbury Rugby Football Club (NRFC) will take place as of Thursday the 20th of September 2018 (ie, this date will be the first night to meet at NRFC).
Please pass the word around all members in the event that someone turns up at Fifth Road on the 20th of September and wonders where the deuce everyone is?!
A huge congratulations goes to Newbury AC member Christina Pugsley who completed the 50km event of the ‘Salisbury 5-4-3-2-1’ running festival on Sunday August 12th, finishing 22nd of 227 finishers.

Charlotte Fowler, in training for the Amsterdam marathon, completed the 33k at the same event coming 5th SW (6th female – 28th/132 finishers) – the furthest she has ever run.
