Press Release - Weston conquer the Exmoor Beast

29/07/2015

Race folklore has it that the Seaview 17 is so called because the course offers 17 chances to see the sea along the route, or that there are 17 benches along the way tempting runners to rest their weary feet. In fact, it`s down to a map measurement error on the part of the race director seven years ago when the race started. The name stuck, and has caught out many a runner expecting 17 miles, but getting nearer 21...read more

2015 Championship Points

20/07/2015

Two races that took place very early in the year have since been moved to different categories. These races are the Riverbank Rollick (18th Jan) now in the cross country category (previously shown as long multi) and the Babcary (22nd Feb) now a misc road (previously short multi). This change has caused some scheduling issues for a number of runners and an agreement has been made at committee that the points for these races can count in either category. The points total will be what you achieved in the race whatever category you decide to nominate and you can only have the points counting once. In order that we can finalise these races can anybody who ran in ether of these races and wants their points for the Riverbank to count as a long multi or for the Babcary to count as short multi please send me a mail to let me know. Please can you let Jim Wotton know by 31/7/15 so that he can update the overall position with the correct scores.
