Our Future

Following a workshop and consultation with members in 2013 we developed a vision and strategy for our club - Our Future

It will help to guide the club's activities and development over the coming years.  Help us to be clearer on where the club is heading, and how we're going to get there.

Our Strategy

Our current top three priority objectives are:

  • Grow the club's membership
  • Well planned and organised training programmes with clear goals.
  • Opportunities for members to build friendships and enjoy each other’s company.

Why is strategy important?

The world is constantly changing - it changes around us and we change within it.  Sometimes the changes are big, but often they are not, and only sometimes do we notice.

Being clear about why we are here, and where we are going is crucial.  This is Strategy.  A Strategy helps us to decide what to do, how to do it, and how we will know we are doing a good job.

"The essence of strategy is choosing what not to do." Michael Porter

Strategic planning need not be confusing.  It boils down to making choices.  We can't be all things to all people.  Choosing goals that achieve something worthwhile, help us to understand what to be good at.

Our Mission

Social distance running at it's best

Our Culture

Stronger together:  Everyone contributes.  Everyone benefits.

Small steps:  Act now on what is possible now.  Improve things as we go.

We’re all different:  Goals and motives are personal.  Diversity benefits us all.
