Hi. For some reason I was not listed as Weston AC in Bristol Half results so I am missing from the points. My race number was 2438 & time was 1:49:33. Thank you.

••••••••••BREAKING TWAC NEWS••••••••••

Some things in life are just not worth missing and our return to the magically Brecon Beacons is one of them!!

4 hours of your life you will never forget!

(Time on feet not running so don't panic!)

Details;

• Session name - 'Pen y TWAC 2 - Return of the TWACS'

• Session type - Mountain adventure

• Date - Sunday 24th September

• Meeting point - Summerhouse pub car park (at the back)

• Meeting time - 5:50am - Leaving at 6am sharp.

• Estimated time of return - 1-2pm

• Things to bring - trail shoes, running vest, drink to carry, snack, billy kit, waterproof or warm top, packed lunch and most importantly bottle of bubbles (if not driving!).

• Pub - Bring your own drinks

So for anyone who didn't come on our first trip you will need to be self sufficient for 3/4 hours on your feet.

Don't panic we will split into groups of different abilities so there's no rush and even the top group will be doing lots of walking up the steep bits! You will not have to run up there if that's what you're thinking.

This is an adventure as a team and hopefully we will get better weather this time to enjoy the stunning views.

What is IMPORTANT though that you are prepared for mountain conditions. Lots of you who came last time will of learnt lots so make sure you have these items;

1. Waterproof or warm top

One minute you could be boiling hot climbing up next you are freezing on top of the ridge. So you will need to adapt along route.

2. Drink

You will need to carry a drink with you, how you do this is up to you. Either a bottle holder or a flask in your vest or bladder. You will need to drink along route.

3. Snack

Because we will be on our feet for 3/4 hours, it's amazing what a snack half way round can do for your energy levels. Personally I choose Haribo every time but just make sure you have something.

4. Running vest or bag (optional)

How you carry the above things is up to you but the perfect way is to wear a running vest which you won't even realise you have on! Everything will fit in perfectly so you can run in comfort with everything to hand when you need it.

A lot of you have brought them since the last trip so great chance to test them out. Also they are not expensive (could someone put up the link in comments please).

5. Packed lunch

Once we have finished we will eat together as a team so bring what you want to eat.

MOST IMPORTANTLY

6. Prosecco (or drink of your choice if not driving!)

Once we have finished it's time to celebrate in style as we take time to enjoy each other's company over a glass of bubbles.

7. Towel & Billy kit

Anyone who's brave enough it's then a quick dip in the local reservoir to clean off then it's back home!

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

As the nights are drawing in and summer's coming to an end (sniff) we'll soon be running our evening runs in the dark.

You won't need one this week, but as of next week you will need to wear a hi-vis vest on all our evening runs.

If you've joined the club in the past few months and haven't got one, see Jim at training.

Alternatively you can pick them up very cheaply in Sports Direct or online.

Run safe people!

Also note that This year the race will be starting from Huish Leisure (next to Huish School) and not from the Langport town centre. The course route remains the same.

PB, It does state on their Website that Start time may be changed. It is always best to confirm on their own site, as our data is only checked every so often and entered at the beginning of the year.

Does this sound familiar?
“It puts everything into perspective – how appreciative I was to get back running and how much I love the sport. You take it for granted, I think, until you have something taken away from you. Most mornings you’d rock up, go for a run and not think about it but, when I got back from the injury, I was just so happy to be back running. It could be chucking it down with rain, or Andy (Muir’s coach, Andy Young) could give me the most horrible session and I wouldn’t care because ‘you know what? I’m running and I’m so happy to be running’. It almost made you commit to it that much more because you’re so appreciative of being back on your feet and running well. I think it makes you change the mindset a little bit.”

– GB’s Laura Muir talking about coming back from the stress fracture she had in her foot at the start of the summer. She’s recovered well and will do the 1500/5000 double in London.

Garmin Forerunner 220 for sale, I don't have a HRM but this can be purchased separately. I am selling it because I have upgraded to a Forerunner 735XT (multisports). It is in very good condition, about a year old and is boxed. It has served me well!
I thought I would post it on here before I list it on Ebay.
If you are interested or want more info please get in touch.

For those of you who ran in the 70's you may well be able to relate to this!
“When you’re a runner and you came through the era I came through – people used to laugh at you when you were out running because it wasn’t the thing to do,”

“They’d shout at you and not many people were out running – if ever you were out in your car and you saw another runner then chances are you’d know them because there weren’t that many of us about.

For Group 6 runners only, note from John Grimsey....

The consensus from our democratic group 6 was that we should run out by the River Banwell on Thursday. The plan is to meet in Sainsbury’s car park at 7:00 on Thursday (the T.K.Maxx end)

Please let your fellow G6ers know. Ta!

••••••••••TWAC NEXT SESSION ••••••••••

• Session name - 'Death Valley'

• Session type - Hill repeats

• Meeting point - Cider Barn Draycott (park in car park field, turn right on entrance

• Meeting time - 7:20pm

• Things to bring - Drink, warm top, Billy kit (if wet) and money for cider!

• Pub - Cider Barn

Another cracking new session which comes with a new TWIST!!!!!

You will have two options on the night;

1. Easy hill repeat option

2. Hard hill repeat option

All will be revealed on the night!

The positioning of the sun going down at the peak of Draycott hill is breathtaking, hence the slightly later start.

There is a whole field to park in and there is a gert lush outside area to watch the sun go down over the Mendips while enjoying a well earned cider!!!

Great to have everyone involved so even if you can't do the session come along to help and take in the views why you encourage your teammates along.

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

• Meeting point - Summerhouse pub car park (rear of car park)

• Meeting time - 6am - (LEAVING CAR PARK FOR 6:10am)

• Things to bring;

1. Packed lunch
2. Change of clothes

4. Drink of your choice for afterwards 🥂🍺
5. Drink to carry (if you choose)

Plan is to get there early to avoid traffic on the roads and easy to park when we arrive.

Who ever choices to drive will receive petrol money and will have bridge toll covered.

Once we meet at the Summerhouse we will make sure we fill up as many cars as possible. It will take about 1 hour and 20 minutes to get there.

We will split up in our groups as usual and then have the time of our life's!!!

Once we've all met again in the car park you will have an option to cool down in a local res (highly recommended) so you feel fresh.

Then we will find a nice scenic place to eat our pack lunches and drink of our choice.

Should be back in Weston for about 1pm ish so people can enjoy the rest of the day with their families.

So who's coming and who's willing to drive.

This TTT has everything, hills (obviously), technically section (rocky), downhill, BH, views and a sprint finish!

The session is for all abilities so it doesn't matter how long you take we will be there to support you round.

It will test the quickest runner to the slowest runner and I want you to all push your own boundaries to 'breaking point'.

Fully marked course as ever but I will need some help especially on this one so if anyone's injured or just want an easy night your help will make this the best session yet.

Another home fixture too so everyone is a winner!!!

Could this be TWAC's best ever session yet because it was my favourite recce to date!

NOT TO BE MISSED
