Mendip Muddle - Early bird discount ends soon!

25/08/2014

Entry to the Mendip Muddle on Sunday October 12th 2014 is now OPEN!

The early bird discount ends on 31st August and places are filling up fast so to be sure of a place enter soon.

This race is held in order to raise funds for the RNLI and other charities.

There is an entry limit of 350 and has been reached for the last three years so get your entry in early to be sure of a place in this popular race.

The Mendip Muddle is a 20km multi-terrain race. The route is tough (there is 420m of climb), but very interesting, set in some of the finest scenery in the West Country. There are Roman lead mines, underground rivers, a nature reserve, open moorland, potholes, an ancient rabbit warren, an Iron Age fort, deciduous and conifer forest, and prehistoric tumuli.

32nd Prom Run Series 2014-15 - Online entry now open!

25/08/2014

Online and paper entry to the 32nd Weston Prom Run Series 2014-15 is now open.

If four or more of you are entering the series from the same club why not consider entering the team competition? More details can be found on the Prom Web Page (link below). Team submissions can be made up until midnight Tuesday 28th October 2014 online or by 7.30pm on Thursday 30th October if submitting via paper form at race HQ.
