Some of you may be working with volunteers from Weston Lions Club and Weston Hospice. Please make them feel welcome.

Finally, we all must be mindful of not only our own welfare but that of the runners and spectators. Unfortunately, we live in times when there are those who may wish to cause us harm, so we ask that you remain vigilant and if there is anything that arouses your suspicions please contact your team leader, Kim or Annette immediately.

December Prom

05/12/2017

Following last months prom race which was found to be slightly short of 5 miles due to an incorrectly positioned turn cone we have decided to make the following offer: Any athlete who had entered, paid and run for just the month of November will be invited to compete in our December race free of charge. To take up this offer they will need to enter at race HQ on the night by completing an entry form and handing it into a member of our registration desk team. This offer is not available for on line entries. On behalf of Weston AC can I offer my apologies for the mistake made and ensure all runners that we have taken steps to avoid this happening again.

Please also note that due to the increased popularity of Icescape and challenge of managing members of the public crossing the race route we have decided to use the alternative 3 lap course for the December race which will avoid passing the front of the Tropicana. This alternative route was measured and ratified by ARC in August 2015.

If you would like to contact me regarding this or any matter please email me using the link on our contacts page

The Dirty Dozen versus the Full Monty Cute

Twelve runners from Weston Athletic Club braved the mud on Sunday to take on the ten miles and ten hills of the Full Monty Cute race organised by Crewkerne Running Club. The route begins and ends on the top of Ham Hill, and during the race this year runners encountered more than their fair share of cloying and slippery mud to sap their energy before tackling hill after hill. After just over 1,500 feet of climb, and looking decidedly muckier than when they began, the dirty dozen eventually climbed their way back to the top of Ham Hill to cross the finish line...
