Hi All,

Most of you may know that after the cold weather last week the restaurant on the 1st floor at Hutton Moor suffered from burst pipes and quite some damage. I have been told that it will take about 6 weeks to fix this. As an interim measure the meeting room on the ground floor has now been turned into a temporary restaurant. Unfortunately the layout of the stock in the meeting room means that there is no adequate space for us to be able to meet inside HM.

Unless it is raining heavily tomorrow night can you please congregate outside HM by the bike store/tennis court area. Please can you try to get there by 7:00pm so that we can quickly get sorted into our groups and get our run underway. The route tomorrow night is the Morrisons route in view of the number of people running Weston half, Forest of Dean half and the Grizzly on Sunday. The route is just 7 miles but can be easily shortened to 5 by coming back over the bridge by Farm Foods.

Good luck to everyone racing.

Next Thursday 22/3 is the March Prom run so I will need help as usual if you are not running please.

Up date on Marathon Tees unfortunately it seems no supplier has any SHORT SLEEVE MEDIUM TEES, so at present I'm without your order. Although I do have the large which some are waiting on.
Cheers DAVE.

Due to the current weather and the strong likelihood that it’s going to get worse before it gets better, there will be no club runs organised this evening from Hutton Moor. 😟
It’s not often we have to stay off the streets but tonight is one of those nights.
Please contact your mates in case they haven’t seen this.

In view of the weather forecast in the Bristol area over the next few days we have taken the reluctant decision to call off the planned Gwent League fixture at Blaise Castle - we are deeply sorry.

Please use all your lines of communication to inform all potential participants etc.

Although some of the course is ‘useable with care’ it is likely to be dangerous in parts.

We have a duty of care to everyone involved - athletes, officials, spectators and anyone travelling. We have not taken this decision lightly.

Awards All individual and team awards will be made on the basis of the first four fixtures. Please look for details on the website.

on behalf of the Gwent Cross Country Committee

Last Monday of the month must mean it's time for the fabulous TWAC Social.
I can't tell you the route, because the leaders make it up on the night and some make it up more than others 😉 #makeyourownpath
What we can promise is up to 2 hours of pure Mendip Magic with hills, mud, stars, stunning views of the surrounding city lights, and some wildlife if you're lucky...... Oh, and probably wet feet 😂

Session Details;

• Session name - Club Circuit ~ TWAC Edition
• Session type - Distance Run
• Date - Monday 26th February
• Session duration - Up to 2 hours, Leaders will have a deadline of 9pm to be back at Car Park.
• Meeting Point - The Swan Car Park
• Meeting Time - 6:50pm leaving car park once we are organised and ready.
• Things to bring - Trail shoes & head torch (a must), 🚨Billy Kit 🚨Wet feet guaranteed, appropriate clothing for the temperature on the night, drink if you choose to carry?, running vest if you choose to and most importantly cider tokens.
Groups will be based on the same as a WAC Thursday night session, so you will easily know which group to go with. If you are not sure we will guide you in the correct group.

Thanks Ian for putting the details of next Monday's TWAC session on here. So much easier for those of us luddites who don't do facebook (and don't wish to have to start), could it become a regular thing as it would also save having to pester friends each week to find out what and where the next session is?

TWAC Monday 19th Feb

Boatyard Bonanza!

This isn’t any ordinary social run, this is a TWAC special! We are keeping it local this week, Uphill to be precise! A short 3.5 mile flat course that starts on the beach and follows the river Axe up round past the boat yard, then further on up and back down and up the Hill to the Tower!
Yes, I lied, it’s not flat!
“What's special about that?” I hear you say! Well, this is TWAC with a Twist! Everyone who finishes the course before the last person gets to do hill repeats just before the Tower, until the everyone is back for a special finish!
“YAY!” I hear you say! (Or was that tumble weed and a distant church bell ringing!) This means King and queen of the hill awards are available! So, do you rush the course and hope you can do the most reps to win? Or do you take it easy, have a nice social run and make the fast TWAC’s suffer on the Hill!
The choice is yours!
This is for all abilities, and would make an awesome first session for any potential TWACs you might know!

- Date: Monday 19th Feb
- Session: social/fast/hill reps
- Meeting point: Uphill boat yard entrance
- Meeting Time: 6.50 for 7pm start
- Things needed: Head torch, warm top, trail shoes, hats gloves etc.. (as needed)
- Post run Pub: Dolphin Inn

The weather conditions are likely to be similar to this week, but as it is not quite as exposed and you are much closer to your car, so should defrost before the morning!
So, Who’s In?
