Tomorrow night is reps on the seafront. Meet 6.50pm for 7pm at the shelter just north of the Trop. The current forecast is heavy rain and 40+mph wind coming in off the sea, so you may need a coat!

Hi Phil,
Riverbank, Slaughterford, Dursley and Grizzly are full already. 2 Bays and Big Cheese are open. Sodbury will fill as soon as it opens (within 2 hours last year). Charmouth should be OK but may change as it has moved to Sat morning. Seaview 17 was full in April last year.

2018 Championship
Now that we are in 2018 you will be starting to plan your races for the first half of the year. I have now finalised the list and checked the dates of the races for the first 7 months but at present can only confirm the first 4 months as some dates are still to be firmed up. We will try to get these onto the site asap but if anybody wishes to make plans the races for Jan to April will be as per 2017 (dates may have changed by a few weeks) plus we have added the Wimbourne 20 on the 4th March and the new Weston Super half on the 18th March.

Just to say thanks to all the marshals and helpers who made the Hangover a success and helped make my first time as race director such a straight-forward task.

Hi Janet, (and others)
Assuming that you do facebook if you go on to the WAC fb page and go back to a message 25/10 (it will take a while to get back there) you will see that Vanessa repeated the detail and photos of the kit that can be bought together with cost. Orders to be made from Dave Jones (our President) and payment to be made before we order. Dave can be contacted via the link on the contact page of the website and Dave will advise how payment can be made. Transfer to WAC account (detail to be given) is probably easier if you are happy with that method.

Thanks to those of you who have offered to help at the Hangover on Monday. Could all marshals meet at 9am in Kew Stoke Village Hall (race HQ) where you will be assigned your marshalling positions? As ever, the more marshals we have, the safer the race will be, so if you haven't yet come forward and are able to help, please drop me a line.

Congratulations to all the runners in today's Christmas Cracker races. Your continued support for these races has allowed us once again to donate £5000 to Weston Hospicecare who do an amazing and important job. A massive thank you to all those brave marshals who had to contend with the wind and cold and all those who helped out in Race HQ. No matter how big or small a job you did without your help these races simply would not happen. A special mention to all the members of the race committee who have worked hard all year preparing for the event. A great job well done. Now start thinking about the 9th December 2018..... A very Merry Christmas to everyone.

If you want to be included in this year's draw for the club's two places in the 2018 London Marathon, read on.
Unfortunately due to the success in larger numbers or runners gaining GFA places EA have decided to change the criteria for place allocation. To receive the 3 places that we have had before we needed to have 251 EA affiliated runners. Out of our 390 members we only have 240 so we only get 2 places this year.
The draw will take place on the night of the Xmas festive run 21/12/17. Please send me a email if you wish to be included in the draw. To be included in the draw you must:
- have been a member of the club for over a year (have paid one renewal)
- have current membership of England Athletics (i.e. paid the extra £14 when you renewed your club membership)
- have been rejected from the VMLM 2018 ballot in October, and have proof of that rejection (your email, or the letter that came with your magazine).
Please can you also confirm if you have run London before as the first draw for the first place will be for those people who have not run London before.

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!
