Hi Paul,
Unfortunately changes for Wimborne needed to be made by midnight last night.

Helen I cannot remember a WAC lady being first on the Prom - Dave can you confirm from the 40 year history. I Guess there must have been one in the early years of the races.

Presidents Breakfast Run

I wish to thank the nine members who turned up on Saturday morning in not too pleasant conditions to say the least and getting soaked for their efforts, but they were not alone as the 15 cyclist also battled through the frequent downpours and a series of punctures making it a good turnout with a total attendance of 37. But at least we all enjoyed the autumn colours which are amazing this year when the sun did come out.

Bristol Children’s Help Society who very generously let us use the excellent venue free of charge ever since I first started this annual event will receive the £131.40 collected on Saturday. ( I have only kept a record since 2012 so the running total is now £642.84).
Finally many thanks must go to the consistent gang of helpers in the Green Aprons and their assistances, it's much appreciated to be able rely on such help.
Better weather is forecast for next years run!!

Ness we used to do it a few years ago after they stopped doing their half (very hard) so happy to consider putting it back in.

It is a nice tough race, about 12 miles I think, big climb in 1st 4 miles. If you have a look on their website you will see photos of me in 2003 with bloody knee after I fell over on the top. Needed 7 stitches and 2 months off running.

Jim - Offa's Orror sounds great. Always same day as London I think. Si did it a few years ago and said it was brilliant. No bridge tolls next year either, so more opportunity for racing over the bridge!

2019 Championship
Hi Adrian/Stuart. Agree your comments Re Grizzly (ballot)and Sodbury as previous discussion but had to leave them in for 2018 as already advertised in 2017.

Intend to leave FOD off-road in as replacement for one of them. Happy with suggestion of Offa's Dyke for next year depending on date. Do you have any other nominations for long off road (over 12 miles)

Do always try to avoid more than one race any date esp. in same road/off-road section. Sometimes difficult when peoples favourite races clash or late notification of change.

Just to clarify for everyone we also never have championship races on days when we have a WAC organised race as it is not fair on those who help if others may take the opportunity to do a different race.

November 5k - Tomorrow 6/11
Please note the November handicap is tomorrow night.
We have moved the handicap to be the 2nd Tuesday in the month unless as has happened this month the Burnham 5K falls before that date. This is to avoid having the club and Burnham 5k in the same week.

Greatly appreciate the organisation behind the championship, I'm sure it's a thankless task. However, agree with Adrian. Any races that sell-out in 24 hours or have a ballot don't really comply with the spirit of the championship & undermine its credibility, as does having 2 championship races on the same day.

Jim any chance we can have some new races instead of the Grizzly and the Slog as they always sell out quickly. There`s plenty in South Wales eg Offas Orrer, which are closer, cheaper and may add a bit more interest.

The first three off-road 2019 championship races (Rollick, Slaughterford & Dursley) are open for entry and will sell-out early if previous years are any indication - Rollick is half full already.

Just to let you know - some of us competed in the OMM at the weekend! Gerry and Teresa King did the B course and I and my daughter Katherine completed the medium score, in spite of the blizzard on Saturday. It was a very cold night. I have never slept in all my clothes before but it was really good to be there. Where were the rest of you?

Just like the proverbial London bus, you wait years for one and then loads turn up a once. Today it was the turn of the 10 mile female club record to fall. Actually it was smashed to pieces, a minute and forty-eight seconds to be precise. Well done to Susan Duncan (Dolly Duncs as fondly referred to by Guy) who went sub 65 at the Great South today.

Please accept my thanks for all the messages of support, both before and after my opportunity to represent England MV40's at the Chester Marathon today. I consider myself very lucky to have joined this club, and am indebted to so many at WAC , and of course my long-suffering family, who have supported me over the years - to me this means more than today's England chance.
I won't bore you with the race details, it went ok but not brilliantly, but feel free to ask for further details when I see you.
It was great to finish and find out about so many great results, across different levels of the club today, both at championship races and further afield - you are all inspiring, not just to me, but to new and non-runners - keep u the great work, cheers Rodney

Well done to all those who turned out for Burnham last night. The first one is always a bit of a shock to the system. None the less there were still some pbs to be found. Also, another club record fell last night. It really does seem that every second counts at 5k. Susan Duncan became the fastest Weston AC female over the distance in a time of 19.09. Well done Susan.

Yes I remember training on the dunes as a teenager but unfortunately due to coastal erosion and dense gorse it is no longer possible. Attempts at Saturday Sessions on the beach have never been that popular. Tuesday efforts were always on the beach until unpopularity and Health and Safety stepped in. We can now only dream of 'Chariots of Fire' training days.
