Use of Parkrun facilities

Members of Hogweed Trotters may use the toilets at Chipping Sodbury Football Club on Saturday Mornings at Chipping Sodbury Parkrun without paying for tea or coffee. 

However in order to do so you must either be wearing a Hogweeds Top or have printed out your membership card from Love Admin

The volunteers who work there don’t know which runners are Hogweed members, so some form of identification is required to avoid confusion.

The How To Guide on our Joining page explains how you can download your membership card.

Please note that discounts on running kit of at least 10% are usually available from local sports retailers (including those based in Bristol and Bath) on presentation of your club membership card.

2023 Calendar updates

The calendar is currently being updated with 2023 events both within the Hogweeds community ( The Trot, Cotswold relay etc) and further afield such as the London Marathon.
Links to events have been added where possible.
Please contact Gaz Keen at if you think an events needs adding, amended or deleted.

Happy New Hogweed Year!

Hogweed Trotters Chairman’s Run this Sunday

Hi All

This Sunday we are bringing back the Chairman’s Run starting at 10am from the clubhouse. Some of us will be meeting at 9am for a short run beforehand but will be heading back to the club before the Chairman’s run starts.

Fancy Dress is encouraged.

After the run around Yate (usually about 5 miles at a very gentle pace) we will have refreshments at the Club House, so please bring along some food to contribute to the buffet.

See you all then.

Four Inspirational Hogweeds!

Thanks everyone for all good wishes today.
We have done well.

We won the gold medal in the National Cross Country Team Relay Champs.
Also, gold in the Midland Team County Champs.

And Lesley was awarded a Gold for doing the fastest lap time in the over 65’s.
What a good day.

Next year we will have more teams.


Happy 22nd Birthday – Hogweeds Did Parkrun!

The Hogweeds turned out in force for Parkrun on Saturday 22nd October to celebrate the 22nd birthday of the founding of the club.

22 Birthday Cake

Members volunteered as marshals, participated in the run and celebrated afterwards with a tea and cakes, with a special 22 shaped cake baked by Sarah which was simply delicious!

Special thanks to Anita for overall organisation of the event and to Jan who designed the flyer which were using to recruit new members.

We’re all looking forward to the 23rd anniversary!
