Hi All,
Mentioned this in my mail on Sunday but tonight we have a fun event consisting of obstacle course team race and raft building / floating competition. The full cost of the event is being met by the club so it would be a shame if we did not use all of the spaces.

We currently have room for about 10 more so if you fancy coming along there is still time for you to join us. The event takes place at 7:00pm in Hewish just over the M5 full detail on the facebook event.

You will need to complete the attached medical form and you may want to bring a dry set of clothes - just in case.

Please can you send me a mail or text on 07928 634252 to let me know that you intend to come.

Cheers

Jim

••••••••••TWAC NEXT SESSION••••••••••

• Session name - 'Mendip mission 1:45'

• Session type - Distance run

• Meeting point - Swan car park

• Meeting time - 6:50pm (leaving car park for 7pm)

• Things to bring - Water to carry (however you choose), warm top, trail shoes and money to buy Woots a beer.

• Pub - The Swan

Not sure if anyone has noticed but our monthly distance runs have slowly been increasing in time and we are stepping up to 1 hour and 45 minutes this Monday.

Please don't be put off by this, as usual we will split up into 4/5 different groups and you will all stick together and go at your own abilities in your chosen group.

You will certainly have breaks so don't think you have to be running for all of that time.

You will never be left alone in your group and you will work as a team to get round together.

Every group will reach Beacon Batch trig point, just in case you've missed out on the fun the last couple of days!

Don't want anyone to be scared or put off by the time as you all are more than capable of being on your feet for that period of time.

Little tip for everyone not used to being out for this period of time, carry some sweets you like to help give you energy along route.

Also if you have the means to carry water then do so as it will come in handy especially if the weather is hot.

So who's in.............?????

Hello!

Beacon Batch

Posted : 11:41
It was my first outing as the race director for the beacon batch last night and I wanted to thank everyone for their help, in preparation and in the running of the evening. Thank you to those who ran, who marshalled, did the timings, results, water and course sweeping. I really appreciate all you did.
I have realised there were a few things I should and shouldn't have done in organising the race. I would like to do improve a few areas next year, and if there was something you spotted that you feel I could do to improve then send me an email and I will try and get it covered next time. Thanks again and I hope you all had a fun evening. Nick.

Lots of you should go and see The Tortoise & Hare at The Tropicana next week. A brilliant show about running and lots of other funny things. Two talented actors and so worth it

The beacon Batch race will be run in 2 weeks today, there are on-line and on the day entries still available. The view on course are wonderful and a great place to enjoy a summers evening with your friends, also with 32 prizes on offer, you could surprise yourself.
If you don't fancy running but don't wont to miss out on the fun you cheer everyone along or marshal along the course. Just contact me through the Beacon Batch page to let me know if you are available. If in previous years you enjoyed doing a particular role and are available this year it would be great to hear from you. Thanks club mates, Nick.

Thanks guys! Yes, that's 11 years on the trot now (so very sad!) so I would have no excuse if I went wrong! Nothing like a 30 mile run as a warm up for the 44 mile Classic Quarter race this coming Saturday. Wish me luck!

••••••••TWAC NEXT SESSION••••••••

• Session name - 'Peak de résistance'

• Session type - Hill Repeats

• Meeting point - Webbington Rd off road car park (Don't panic full details to follow)

• Meeting time - 6:50pm (Leaving car park at 7pm)

• Pub - 'The New Inn'

• Things to bring - Drink (to carry to start), warm top (to carry to start), trail shoes, towel and money for pub.

Another brand new session coming to TWAC!!!

This is going to be the best session yet as it's probably one of the best views around and you will get it quite a few times hopefully as you will get 30 minutes to challenge yourself against the mighty Crook Peak!!!

Anyone who did the 'Boobie Hill TTT' will have already done the climb as it's the last section leading up to the peak. Then as before you touch the cone before looping back around the peak before doing it all again.

You can see the top of Crook Peak from a lot of places in and around Weston, so look out for it this week as a reminder of the fun you will have next Monday.

Hopefully we will get great weather so we can stretch off and relax afterwards on top of the peak because the views of a sun set from there is spectacular!!! And after last night we deserve a beautiful view!!!

Any injured or recovering TWAC's then you will be most welcome as could do with a couple of helpers so the other leaders can enjoy the session too.

So who's in..............????

Hi Bruce,

There are no organised club runs on Sunday, members organise their own groups to meet, There is usually a group that meet in the car park opposite the Walnut Tree pub at the end of Winterstoke road at 8.15 with various distances being run usually around 9min mile pace,a faster group meet from the donkey in Worle plus there are a few others, sorry not familiar with them all as I tend to join the group from the Walnut. The best way is to ask around on a club night with people in the group you are running with. You would be more than welcome to join the Walnut Group.

Jim [WAC]

There will be no led groups from Hutton Moor tonight 29/5/17.
There will be 4 led groups with the TWAC group meeting at 6:50 Black Rock Cheddar for a run of about 4 miles see TWAC facebook page for more detail.

Thanks to all for another great Prom series. Really appreciate the support on the way round each month. Also, would highly recommend the Dartmoor Discovery to anyone who is thinking of taking Teresa's place. There are a few of us going down so you won't be alone. Cheers Josh.

••••••••••TWAC'S NEXT SESSION••••••••••

TWAC will take on Cheddars 'Hells Steps' next Monday (22/5/17) in our first step repeat session.

• Session Name - 'To Hell & Back'

• Session Type - Step Repeats

• Meeting Point - Black Rock

• Meeting Time - 6:50pm

• Pub - The White Hart

• Things To Bring - Trail shoes, water bottle, warm top and money for a drink.

Firstly don't be put off by the name and I would be very disappointed if any TWAC thought they couldn't do this session because they are not fit enough or not strong enough.

Every TWAC is capable of completing this session, every ability!!

You will be only challenging yourself for 30 minutes to see how many repeats you can complete.

Please don't think you have to run it all believe me you'll be walking up bits. This is a session to push you out of your comfort zones and as our TWAC motto states have #noboundaries.

It's a short session, it's a very short warm up run to the start point and the session is for 30 minutes. So we will be finished and back at the cars for 8pm.

Your final effort will be converted into how much elevation gain in feet you covered. I will have a chart to work this out easily at the end of your efforts.

Every TWAC who comes and gives it a go will be rewarded with a special award afterwards.

There will be leaders the entire way up giving you encouragement and form advice so you won't be alone.

Best part is we will all be together as a team pushing each other through!

So who's in...........????

I seem to have a fan out there. Thanks very much...it was sooooo tough but I can recommend WAC runners give it a try next year! There is no flat terrain whatsoever but wonderful scenery weaving out of the Cornish Pyramids (china clay spoil heaps) in St Austell. That's my 3rd marathon in 6 weeks. I need sectioning! Roll on the Classic Quarter in 4 weeks...groan!

Thank you!! - 5 years ago today I joined WAC, I can safely say it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made – doubtless my sister will rightly take some credit for this – I’d long thought of joining but was scared I’d be too slow. Shaleen joining before me meant I knew at least one person would be slower than me.
To date I’ve spent £10o on memberships, I’ve gained well over 100 friends, some of whom I’ve no doubt will be friends for life, truly money well spent.
My aim when joining was to break 1h 40mins for a half marathon, I’d failed 3 times previously, with proper training was swiftly achieved, I didn’t then expect to progress much more, however I hadn’t factored in the camaraderie and competitive spirit that resides in so many at this great club, I owe a debt of thanks to all members past and present, the committee, coaches and my training group, but most of all to my family who have had a deal with this growing obsession (I call it dedication) over the years.
Once again – Thank you!!
