Oswestry Olympians Awards

Lots of fun was had by all as the Oswestry Olympians Seniors celebrated a fine year of achivement at the annual presentation evening.

All awards were given out by Club Vice Chairman John Shaughnassy.

The Rose Bowl awards were won by Peter Butler and Alison Lavender who have both had excellent years on the road and cross country.

Paul Jones was a winner of the 5k, 10k and Marathon comnpetitions.. Whilst Jackie Jarvis won the ladies marathon category. All other ladies categories were won by Alsion Lavender.

Ian Lowe won the mens Seniors best improved.

The Oswestry Olympians Tri section presented an Outstanding Achievement Award to Claire Birch.

10k club record holder, Paul JonesOne of the longest standing club records was broken by Paul Jones at the Telford 10k in December 2012. The previous M40 10k record had been set by the late John Rowlands back in 1991(34m 20s), but Paul who has been in great form this year has improved the record to a remarkable 33m 51s. Lets hope we don't have to wait another 21 years for the record to be broken again ! Well done Paul.

Ellesmere 10k Results 2017 - SEE ATTACHMENT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE (UPDATED 4/9/17)




The fabulously fast Ellesmere 10km race is back for 2017 and the date is confirmed as Sunday 27th August starting 11:00am.

This is as fast and as popular as ever!  This race genuinely does have PB potential for runners prepared to take it on.

The race is a mix of road and well surfaced flat trail, very gentle undulations with just one sharp turn and a hump-back canal bridge to negotiate. Plus some stunning scenery to zoom your way through.

The prize money this year is £100 for first place, 2nd (£50) and 3rd (£25).

Chip timing and technical t-shirt to all runners is included as well as free parking. The venue is Lakelands School, which has changing facilities and there will be tea and coffee and baps and cakes on offer within the venue. The sun usually shines on this race.

Ellesmere is a delightful small town with plenty to do and scenic vantage points to watch the race from. The race entry is capped at 500 runners so be sure to enter quickly before it's sold out.

Training Nights



Improvers Group


On Monday nights the Improvers’ group, for those who are already regularly running 3-4miles and would like to run with others, runs from Oswestry Leisure Centre at 6.30pm. Running around 10-12 minute miles and covering 4.5 – 6 miles on runs around Oswestry. Usually a steady run with some drills and other things mixed in.



Intermediate and Regular Training 

Meeting at the Oswestry Leisure Centre.

The Monday session is a steady run and  tempo sessions. Wednesday is a little different with intervals, hill work and one or two surprises thrown in ! There we would normally split into two (or more) groups.

During the Winter we keep to the roads for the street lights but as soon as the evenings get lighter we're off into the Shropshire countryside for some of the prettiest running around.

On clearer nights we will organise some "Head-torch" runs where will venture into the country lanes for some longer routes. 

There is also a run in Ellesmere on Fridays meeting at the Car park at 6.15pm.

Creating Your Site

Joomla! is all about allowing you to create a site that matches your vision. The possibilities are limitless; this sample site will just get you started.

There are a few things you should know to get you started.

First, every Joomla! site has two parts the Site (which is what your site visitors see) and the Administrator (which is where you will want to do a lot of the site management). You need to log in to the Administrator separately. There is a link to the administrator on the top menu. 

You can edit articles in the Site by clicking on the edit icon. You can create a new article by clicking on the Create Article link in the top menu.  

To do other things, like edit the contact form, edit the modules or change the site name you need to log in to the administrator. 

Some quick tips for working in the Administrator:

  • Change site name and tag line: Go to the Extensions, Template Manager and on the Styles tab click on Your Basic Template.
  • To edit the Header Module: Go to Extensions, Module Manager and click on Header Module.
  • To edit the Side Module: Go to Extensions, Module Manager and click on Side Module.
  • To edit the Contact Form: Go to Components, Contacts. Click on Your Name. 


Once you have your basic site you may want to install your own template (that controls the overall design of your site) and then, perhaps additional extensions. 

There is a lot of help available for Joomla!. You can visit the Joomla! forums and the Joomla! documentation site to get started.

About Us

Welcome to your new look web-site

Dear Oswestry Olympians Members

Welcome to your new look web-site. This is the first stage of what we hope will become an indispensible point of reference in your life to keep you up to date on all things Olympian, plus information on running, athletics, triathlon and events, and our advertisement to the world,  telling people about us and our events.

Our club needs a single point of communication that is up to date and relevant to all of us. This might be to update you on training, or communicate that an event has been cancelled or perhaps to tell you ways of improving your performances.
Today's web interaction has to be two way. We all want to download, upload and communicate, instead of just one-way viewing. Our site includes live feeds from facebook and twitter, so if anyone says something it will be on our site instantly too.

The site will allow you to have your own blog, perhaps to keep your own training log or add photos from your run or events you've been to and leave you to say anything you want (nothing offensive of course please!). You only need to log in and we'll authorise your membership and send you an email to confirm. Then you are free to start tapping away for your fellow club members to see.

Our website had lasted almost 12 years, and much thanks go to Keith Weetman, Jon Hancock and Dave Newton in particular for keeping it going. But the old site and our newsletters were almost driven by steam in comparison to our new site. We hope you like the look so far. Much work still needs to go on behind the scenes to get it perfect and filled with information.

It's going to be very interesting to see how it develops over the next weeks, months and years. Enjoy.

With best regards

Paul Davies
