The Magnolia committee would like to thank each and every one of our members for their continued support throughout 2020 which has been a strange and difficult year for us all.

Here's to a prosperous 2021!

Seasons Greetings from the Magnolia Committee.
Latest News
With the Covid pandemic still a harsh reality it is doubtful that there will be much in the way of road races in the first half of 2021.

This poses a threat to the continued existence of many running clubs as they rely on generating an income from membership fees and the ability to host a race.

Magnolia Road Runners is in the fortunate position to have a strong balance sheet which will help get us through the next financial year even though we won't be hosting our Intercare Classic road race in the coming year.

We will, however, still need the continued support from our members through membership fees to help ride out the pandemic.

The committee, therefore, has proposed that we firstly keep our membership fees unchanged for 2021 and secondly, that we split our membership fee into two components, membership and AGN license fee separately.

This will help our members to continue to support the club financially at a reduced rate without having to purchase an AGN license until it's needed for when road races are once again a reality on the calendar.

To help support our runners during this time we will be introducing a monthly time trial which has some lovely prizes up for grabs. More details will follow soon... Also, our RacePace quality coaching sessions will resume as normal from the 6th of January.

Speed work is the core of what drives improvement in our running. So Magnolia has joined forces with Clinton Hunter from RacePace Coaching to provide group coaching sessions to all Magnolia members who are interested in improving their running.

These coaching sessions are for old, young, slow, and fast.

The professional coaching sessions are paid for by the club, so it will be free of charge to our members.
