Hello All,

What a fantastic start to 2018 for Lodge Sports!  To continue the momentum moving forward we just wanted to remind our members that if they wish, they could compete for an Affiliated Athletics Club, if you dont already.

With open events and competitions coming up, as we coach athletes from different clubs in the area, we thought it would helpful to provide some links of some local clubs which you may want to join, to compete in athletics events. Remember to Google/Bing search for other local clubs which are not listed here. Dont forget affiliation starts at U13, U11 dont need to be affiliated to compete.

I should point out, in the interest of full disclosure,  South Glos AC is a new club which I am an Ambassador for.  But there are plenty of clubs to join.

Check out the opportunities before you register/move to make sure the club fits your personal requirements.


If you wish to move from an existing club to another, you can via this link: Please note there is a process and guidelines for this and any athlete should speak to their parent/guardian before hand.

We hope you find this of interest, and look forward to seeing you on the track/field!

Newsletter Apology

Dear members, our flagship newsletter, which was emailed yesterday, seemed to have a mixed up list where duplicate Email addresses became out of sync with Athlete Names.  We are incredibly sorry for this.  We can confirm this has now been rectified with a newly built list.

If you unsubscribed from our emails, but you again have received this, it is with our sincere apologies you have received another.  Of course we would love you to remain as subscribers but if you do wish to unsubscribe it should not be reversed.

If you have any questions, or concerns, please do get in touch via our website, or at one of our sessions. Alternatively you can email Mark (,

New Affiliated Athletics Club

Hi All

As some of you were aware that for some time I have been thinking about setting a new club, one local to the area that athletes can get more opportunities to compete. Phil Lucker and myself have taken the past year or so to set up South Glos AC. A club that can provide all members competitive opportunities on the track, road and cross country, wearing the same vest!

What does this mean to you and the coaching you have from either Running Revolutions or Lodge Sports? Absolutely nothing, you just have an extra club to choose from, coaching will still be provided as before, no matter which club you choose to join or not to join.

We at Lodge Sports dedicated to developing the sport especially for the juniors of South Glos and although intend to promote junior development we can accept senior membership. But it is the ability we now have to provide the more local options that excites us and we hope you guys are supportive of this move.

If you would like to know more detail about joining  South Glos AC please contact me and I will let you know. If you are happy to stay members of your current club then we are all still happy to provide the coaching, and after all, this is the most important part!!!

On behalf of Lodge Sports, thank you for reading this and we look forward in seeing you all soon.

Many thanks
