Weston Prom Run
17/05/13 - Entry for the 31st Weston AC Prom Run Series is now open. Enter the series before 31st August 2013 for just £15 so don't delay, enter today.
Please be aware that for the 2013-14 Series (Sep 2013 - May 2014) series we will need to move from the usual 3rd Thursday of each month. This is due to the installation and use of the new flood defence system recently installed along Weston promenade. Whenever a very high tide is experienced with threatening high winds the Council now close the flood gates and the promenade around the pier and harbour becomes a prohibited area.
We will therefore be moving all of the Weston AC Prom race dates from the 3rd Thursday to the 4th Thursday of each month. The one exception will be December when it will take place on 2nd Thursday (December 12th). Full race date list below:
- Thursday 26 September 2013.
- Thursday 24 October 2013.
- Thursday 28 November 2013.
- Thursday 12 December 2013.
- Thursday 23 January 2014.
- Thursday 27 February2014.
- Thursday 27 March 2014.
- Thursday 24 April 2014.
- Thursday 22 May 2014.
