British Cycling Statement:
With regards to daily exercise, without specific time or distance limits having been stated, it is to some degree open to interpretation what is considered reasonable (although it is hard to argue that a 200-mile ride constitutes ‘minimising time spent out of the home’).

The overriding sentiment seems to be that you can (and should) do enough to stay healthy and sane – but not really any more than that.

British Cycling is advising people to ride “for calm recreation” and not to challenge themselves.

“Now, more than ever, we must ride our bikes responsibly – that means only going out once a day, on our own, or with people we live with, and keeping two metres apart from anyone we meet, stopping and waiting for people to pass when necessary.

Suspension of club activities
16/03/2020
Following the government briefings of Monday 16th March 2020 the actions being taken to tackle the Coronavirus emergency now call on all of us to change our behaviours to help the effort.

In addition to actions for certain parts of the community to self isolate and other requests they have asked all of us to try to work from home where possible, avoid unnecessary travel and non-essential gatherings.

With the particular request to limit travel and gatherings your committee has decided that as a socially responsible club we should suspend all official club sessions for the foreseeable future.

We will resume as soon as developments allow but in the meantime stay safe and keep running.

With the extra time that you may have available why not try getting involved in helping out with supporting shopping and deliveries for the self isolating people in your area, family or neighbourhood watch etc.

I have now updated the December handicap result and shown January start times. I have also posted the results of the timed mile from December on the next tab.
If you are not on the handicap list it just means that you have not run one in the last 12 months and we can agree start time before you run.

Big thanks to all the Marshalls yesterday. We have had a message from a competitor and I wonder if anyone can help:

"At the end of the first loop I passed my jacket to a marshal but couldn’t find it at the end. If someone hands it in or reports it I’d be very grateful! It’s a karrimor blue wind lightweight jacket with orange zips and had half a packet of haribo and a berocca energy packet in the pocket."

Hi. I very much enjoyed the run today. Lovely, friendly marshals and the bad weather held off until the afternoon. Thank you to everyone involved in providing the event.
I have a couple of points:
1. My age category is shown as V40 but I should be V60 - the female is correct. Please can this be corrected?
2. Near Uphill, I lost my black buff, black with a multi coloured pattern. I wonder if it has been handed in?

Many thanks

Congratulations to all the runners who braved the strong cold winds to compete in our Christmas Cracker races today.

A big thank you to everyone who came and helped make the race happen. A huge team of marshals both inside race HQ and outside on the course did an amazing job in challenging conditions. For those out on the course it was a very cold job and must have been really difficult. I have received many positive comments and thanks from runners to you all.

No matter how small or large the role you played it was all very important in making it a safe and enjoyable race for the 2000+ runners.

A job very well done. Thank you.

Congratulations to all the runners who competed in our races last night. A wet and cold evening made it unpleasant for all our marshals who did a great job as usual. Without their help we would not have a race. Good to see all the juniors back and running in our newly formatted races. Thanks to the team who made it all happen.

PRESIDENTS BREAKFAST RUN
1st December 2019

UPDATE

This annual event has been cancelled for this year only, due simply to safety reasons, currently both Janet and I are hobbling around, one with a fractured ankle (me) and the other (Janet) awaiting a hip replacement. For example a minor slip in a crowded kitchen with very hot dishes etc could lead to a serious outcome. Therefor I'm confident you will understand my concerns, but I can assure you with my band of regular volunteers we can all look forward to a social run and full English breakfast around this time next year, as we will be back.

President DAVE.

Message from our friends at the hospice

It’s the hospice’s 30th anniversary year in 2019, and one of the events we have planned is a birthday celebration night on October 19. This is a little different from most of our events in that it’s not designed as a fundraiser; rather, it is a celebration of the hospice’s 30 years to which we’re inviting staff, volunteers, and supporters.
 
We’re acutely aware of the magnificent support which WAC gives to the hospice each year, through the Christmas Cracker and support and participation in our own events. If anyone from the club is keen to attend, we’d love to see them there.  
 
For background info, although this is a ticketed event at Cadbury House, the tickets are priced to cover costs, rather than to make a profit; we want the event to be as accessible as possible for those who would like to come, and so it’s first and foremost a celebration rather than a fundraiser.
 
The cost per ticket is just £30, which includes a glass of fizz on arrival, a three-course dinner and coffee, live music from the Lipinski Band, and then a DJ to ensure the party continues until late. It promises to be a really special occasion and a lot of fun. I’m sure your members would enjoy the evening, whether they came along in small numbers or opted to organise a bigger group.
 
Prior to now, tickets have been offered to staff and volunteers, but we do plan to share info about the event with the public shortly. However, we were keen to give WAC an advance heads-up, as tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis – so do please let me know if you or any of your members are keen, as we’d love to see you there.

Thank you to everybody who came down to help and put on a successful first race of the series esp. with the added complications of the filming going on from the Trop, Handing out 300ish series numbers (our 3 degrees) and the expensive looking convoy of fast cars leaving the pier during the race.
