Weston Prom Run

Organised by Weston Athletic Club

Weston Prom Run

In light of developments with the spread of COVID-19 and the fact that we now have confirmed cases in the local area we have taken the decision not to hold the March prom races this Thursday evening.

It would not be fair to our runners, volunteers or venue team to risk the spread of infection.

We would like to apologise to all our runners for the disappointment this news will no doubt bring, but the health of you all and our volunteers is paramount.

We will discuss over the coming days whether we might be able to hold the race at a later date or whether we might need to shorten the 2019-20 series.

In the meantime, keep healthy and keep running.

Weston AC

Following on from Official guidance and WAC Committee decision - This Thursday's 5 Mile Prom and 1 Mile Junior Prom Race have been cancelled for March 19th 2020. More information to follow.

1 Mile Junior Prom Race

Following our decision to cancel the Junior 1 Mile Prom Race this year, we had many contacts from disappointed parents asking us if it could be reinstated. I am pleased to announce that following a complete review of our procedures we now have a process which we are happy meets all of the relevant authorities requirements. This was tested at last months Prom Race with a small number of juniors and with the excellent support of our club members it worked extremely well. So the Junior 1 Mile Prom Race has been reinstated and will be open for entries at our next race on the 21st November and all races thereafter. Parents & Guardians please note there are changes to the race times (see below) and additional safeguarding measures we have put into place especially for the under 11ís. Registration will close at 18.15 pm to allow sufficient time for us to prepare for the race, so please arrive in plenty of time.
