Social Events

Throughout the year we have regular social events that include:

Christmas Party

Usually a Friday in December  at a local venue with a bar, DJ and Food - get your party dress on!

This year the party is on Friday 1st December 2023. See you there!

Mince Pies Night

On the last Wednesday track session before Christmas, the session will be a shorter ‘Fun’ Session organised by the coaches followed by coffee and mince pies in the sports centre afterwards (Bar is also open for those who wish to purchase drinks)

On this evening we take a club vote for Most Improved Runner, open the sign up sheets for the volunteer places at the London Marathon for the following year and also conduct the ballot for our club places for the London Marathon – please see the London Marathon information page for qualifying and disqualifying criteria for the club ballot

We are also lucky enough to have entries available for Brighton Marathon which are also balloted amongst club members – there are no specific eligibility criteria for this ballot

Annual General Meeting

This is the one night of the year when we ask you not to run but to come and understand and have a say in how the club is run plus who your committee will be for the following 12 months year - it's usually the Wednesday before the London Marathon each year at a venue big enough to offer everyone a seat plus a bar for afterwards (and before!)

Pub of the Month

Usually the first Friday of the month, venue changes each month

Post race meet ups 

After all the TVXC events and many other local races members nominate a pub close to the race venue for a post race conflab - usually involves food for those who want it as well as a beer or two!

Awards Night

Usually at the end of the race season and after the Spring marathons are done, we get together to recognise our Championship Winners, The Coaches Choice - Runner of the Year, Most Improved Runner (as voted for by club members at the Mince Pie night in December), members who have completed PB's for distance and some other fun awards. At a local venue wiht a bar, DJ and Food - a great night to celebrate the acheivements of all our members over the previous season.


Other Ad Hoc events organised by members include post race BBQ's in the summer, Quiz Nights and trips away for races in both UK and further afield for runners and supporters alike.

We have a saying amongst our members that we are 'Drinkers with Running Problems' who knows where the reputation came from?!
