Well done to all the runners who braved tonight's prom races. Cold, windy and damp conditions gave you all a tough race. Special thanks to all those marshals who stood out in the conditions to help make the race safe. Your support is very much appreciated. Well done to you all.

Hi everyone, With the new skating rink (Icescape) now up and running in the Tropicana we face additional marshaling challenges at this and next months prom races. We will need extra marshals based around the entrance to the rink so if you are not running and can help please come down and lend us a hand on Thursday night. A free tea or coffee will be waiting for you!

Club Championship 2018
Hi all I have just seen a note about Dursley entries so have looked at detail for 1st 10 weeks of 2018.
The prom runs and Burnham 5k's will feature as before. Sunday races:
14/1 Riverbank - already full
28/1 Slaughterford - 91 places left
11/2 Dursley Dozen - 70 places left
11/2 Humdinger half
25/2 2 Bays tough ten
11/3 Big Cheese
11/3 Bideford half
18/3 Weston half
18/3 Grizzly -already full

If wish to enter Slaughterford or Dursley I suggest you need to act now as they will fill very quickly.

I will firm up on more races shortly and pass to Mark for loading onto the website.

Hi Bill,
When I got back there everyone had gone so I did not get out and check sorry. Jamie phoned me to say he had one black top left in his car but it does not sound as though this is yours. May at least have gone to a good home if it is the person who has been sleeping there for a while. The police called in on Monday night when we were there and gave them some blankets.

Hi has anyone picked up my wac Hoddie at the timed mile tonight it was left on the bench in the shelter where we meet.

Jim [WAC]

Well done everyone who came down to run the timed mile to raise money for children in need. 45 people ran and so far we have £40, with the extra £5 paid I am sure the committee will agree to make our donation up to £100.
Conditions were good esp. running the way we did. Some very fast times led by Chris McMillan in 4.33 and Michelle Fryer in 6.09.
Jamie had one piece of unclaimed kit a black top that he will bring to the front on Saturday morning.

If you have a couple of hours to spare on New Year's Day, and aren't tempted to run it for yourself, I'm on the look out for marshals and helpers, indoor and out, for the Hangover 10k. Please drop me a line if you're able to help.


Posted : 16:22
Thanks all round to the 54 persons who ventured out to Barton for the Presidents Breakfast Run. We were blessed with fine weather for a change and donations came to £127.00 which I will pass onto the Charity. Special mention to the regular band of helpers who continually turn each year with fail, so I have awarded them an apron each!!
Cheers Dave.

Congratulations to all the finishers in both of our races this evening. Record numbers in both races.

Thanks as always to all those people who helped both on the course and in race HQ. Without your help these races could not take place. Great to see the results posted so quickly after the race.

If anyone fancies the idea of Triathlon, but isn't sure about the swimming part, why not give Duathlon a go?
The Chilly Duathlon at Castle Combe Circuit on 19 November has just been made a Grand Prix event for the Tri Championship giving 250 extra championship points to everyone who finishes.
Hopefully there will be a few WAC members competing, so you should see some friendly faces.

If anybody has a wimborne 10m place that they have decided not to run, please could you let me know. This event has sold out and its the only event left for me to do to complete the club championship. I'm more than happy to pay for the place. Thanks in advance. Phil

Good turnout for the first 5k back on the winter circuit in just about ideal conditions. 34 finishers with 7 pb's and loads of new first times. Pride of place though I think must go to Bill Green whose dedication to training has led to a new lifetime pb of 20.39

My mistake Phil I thought when we spoke at Mob Match you said you were now 1st claim with Southville. As you are still 1st claim I will get John to put you back in. Jules is 1st claim B&W so will change next race she does. Sian should be in result I will ask John to add and Eugene to change to male. Are there any other changes that people can see need to be made to Prom/championship result ?


Posted : 08:34
More important than me not being listed, is Jules...she's still down as WAC and was first female home, but is down as male...


Posted : 02:52
Thank you all. Pleased you are still on board Phil. I have another query, is there a reason why Katherine (aka Sian) Roberts is not on the WAC results?

Friday 29 September 2017


Posted : 22:29
I probably wouldn't go that far ;-)

Can confirm Phil is definately showing as fully paid up & first claim affiliation with Weston AC on the EA Site.

Victor says the bird is innocent!


Posted : 21:07
News to me! EA are under the impression I'm 1st claim WAC, 2nd claim Southville...unless I've been kicked out of which case, none taken!

Jim [WAC]

Posted : 16:34
Jamie Phil is now 1st claim Southville as she lives much close to them for training

Re: Prom Teams.

Is Phil Richards not on WAC Results due to her lack of appropriate attire or is Phil not a current member? Thank you.

Also thanks to all those friends and members who turned out to help marshal and help with the race. Without your help it simply would not happen.
