Runners on The Road

Runners on The Road

Come and join us for International Events!!

Often throughout the year many of us Roadrunners organise our own trips abroad. Someone will come up with an idea and we'll then eventually post it on Facebook.

These events are usually marathons but many incorporate half marathons & 10Ks also. We also have members who travel to international parkruns.  Often many may just come to support, so it's ideal if you just want a holiday.

The problem is many people can feel left out or new members may not have noticed old posts on Facebook.

If you have a trip planned in next year or so, or have a great idea then please contact me or email your idea and rough details to runnersontheroad@readingroadrunners.org or just tag me in (Paul Monaghan) and mention details on Facebook. Note you're not obliged to do this and it's totally understandable that you just may want to arrange your own trip with friends. But come on we all love a good holiday.

Reading Roadrunners TVXC 2021-22 Final Results

This sheet shows only those members who have met the qualifying standard of running or volunteering in at least 4 of the 6 TVXC events. So, those who ran or volunteered in 3 or fewer events, your scores are not shown. In each of the 6 races we’ve allocated 50 points for the 1st Roadrunner in each category, 49 for 2nd place, 48 for 3rd place and so forth. If you volunteered so didn’t run at our own event at Ashenbury points have been allocated equal to your average score over the other events. The rules provide that your best 3 scores count with the person with the highest score in each category in 1st place.

A trophy will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each age category (as applicable). Participation awards will also be made to those members who ran or volunteered in every TVXC race.  These will be awarded at the Dinner Dance on 5th March.
