Press release - Run to the Hills


A hot and humid Thursday evening made for sticky conditions as 17 Weston Athletic Club members took on the Burrington Blaster - a five mile off-road race from Burrington Combe to the top of Beacon Batch and back again, with 1,000 feet of climb along the way.

Chris McMillan remains at the top of his game, and finished second overall on the night with a new course best time of 31.58 - a time that most runners would be proud of for a flat five mile race, let alone a hilly one. Sian Roberts was first club female to finish in 45.47, and averaging just over a nine minute mile on that terrain is impressive... read more

2017 Mendip Muddle


Entry to the 2017 Mendip Muddle is now open. Enter before 1 September for an early bird price of £13

The Mendip Muddle is our toughest race. Held over 20km (12 miles) of the finest Mendip Hills, the course is hilly (there’s 420m of climb) and set in some of the finest scenery in the West Country.

You will run past Velvet Bottom, Rhino Rift, Beacon Batch, Twin Brooks, Dolebury, Rowberrow Bottom, Tyning's, Black Down and Rains Batch. All but 2km of the course is off road and it can get a little boggy in places so make sure you bring your off road shoes.
