Although running is at the core of SRC many of our members wish to get more out of the club than just running so we have a very lively social side.


Following most of the internal club races and many of the external ones too,  members tend to gather at  a convenient pub in the locality, where we exchange gossip and expose the theory that runners abstain from the pleasures of good food and drink!


Events are also organised during the year when we can forsake our running shoes and shorts, put on our casual gear (or party clothes for the more adventurous) and enjoy the Summer and Christmas Parties. Recent successful themes have been formal dinners, barbecues, a hog roast, discos, barn dances and a quiz night. We have also provided dance evenings to live bands and joined with Caythorpe Cricket club to organise various other events.


Successful events that combine running with socialising include weekends in the Lake District or other equally attractive (and challenging) areas. There is also the annual Bramley Challenge at Caythorpe Cricket Club where runners from Southwell, Notfast and Holme Pierrepont compete over a five mile course. Finishing positions are taken for each club and these are added up and divided by the number of runners to calculate each team's average position. The club with the lowest average wins the Bramley Apple trophy for the year. The event is rounded off with chips, sandwiches and beer in the bar. As always we are grateful to CCC for their hospitality.

Recently SRC celebrated its 30th birthday  with a well attended ceilidh at Southwell Rugby Club. The band, food and venue were all excellent with plenty of "high quality" dancing. It was good to see some past members present, especially Bill Johnson and his wife Betty, as Bill formed the club back in 1986.
