Press Release - Chris crowned with cake and cider

Chris crowned with cake and cider

Weston Athletic Club’s Chris McMillan wasn’t content with just one race victory in a week, so he went on to bag a second over the bank holiday weekend.


His first came at the Crook Peak Cake Race on Wednesday. At only three miles, you could be forgiven for thinking the event would be a stroll in the park, but far from it, as runners tackle not one, but two ferocious climbs over the short course. First, a visit to the peak itself, before descending to Wavering Down, then a call to the trig point before a tricky descent to the finish at Cross... Read more

Portishead multi-terrain 10k

20/08/2017

We've found out today that the date for this year's Portishead multi-terrain 10k has changed from Sun 24 September to Sun 8 October.

This means it now clashes with our own Mendip Muddle race and as a result we will be taking it out of this year's club championship.

We never hold our own races on the same day as championship races because we want people to help out (or run) and not feel that they're missing out on points.

Hopefully next year the dates won't clash and we'll be able to add it back in.

This leaves three short races in the off-road championship this year - Crook Peak Cake Race, Ash Excellent 8 and Brent Knoll.
