2020 Vegan Runners UK AGM – Bristol

Dear VR Members

The 2020 AGM will be in Bristol on 2 May!

After a tightly fought race, the majority of members who voted have chosen Bristol as the location for the 2020 AGM. Our thanks to Ipswich for also putting forward an exciting alternative bid.

Many of you have already signed up for the Bristol Big weekend and we are now expecting it to be even bigger!

As previously advertised, Fiona Oakes (VR member and owner of Tower Hill Stables Animal Sanctuary) will be racing for England in the Bristol 10K on Sunday 3 May and we will therefore be having the AGM on the Saturday afternoon.

Full details of the venue and the weekend events will be circulated in March and advertised in the Facebook event in the VR Club Members Group (so if you are not already signed up to that please join it). https://facebook.com/events/s/the-big-bristol-10k-weekend-20/1373174046140316/ The details will also be posted on the Club’s website and we will send updates via email for those of you not on Facebook..


Over 60 members signed up in January to the 15% club discount. As more members may now decide to attend, we are reopening up the bulk discount. If you are interested in taking advantage of this promotion please complete the google poll below before 15 March and pay the entry fee of £26.35 (a discount of almost £5) to the club bank account (sort code 08-92-99 Account Number 65419869) and include the reference BR10 and your first initial and surname. For instance BR10HCARPENDALE.

It is a condition of the promotion that you must be a member of the club on race day so please ensure that you renew your membership in early March when you receive your notification from Peter Simpson. Second claim members are also entitled to the discount, and it is hoped that unless you are an elite runner, you will seek permission from your First Claim club to wear VR vests and register under Vegan Runners. If more than one person in the household is applying for the discount please complete the poll for each member and pay separately.
