Hi Bill,
Thanks for spotting. Phil has been inadvertently removed from the WAC system so John H cannot currently add him to the result. He will be re-instated and John will add when done.

Summer reads available, give me a shout if you would like either of these books:
'Irongran' by Edwina Brocklesby - someone from WAC gets a mention, but who is it?
'North' by Scott Jurek - even the worlds best ultra athletes have their limits
Gave these next books to the charity shop but I recommend 'Redemption: From Irons Bars to Iron Man' by John McAvoy - big time London gangsta turns into top amateur triathlete, & 'Find a Way' by Diana Nyad - after multiple failed attempts Nyad swims from Cuba to Florida 110 miles unassisted, both worth a read.

Good luck with your OW triathlon this weekend. I left a note for you on messenger RE: swimming at clevedon.
Hope you don't get too nervous... let the space open up at the start - I always used to find it helped calm my nerves and get my breathing under control. Try and enjoy the experience!

Just to re-iterate Nick's comment thanks again to everyone coming forward to help organise and marshal the event.

For those of you not on fb or the TWAC fb page at least 3 people managed to pick up a tick last night one of them 4. So whether you ran or marshalled you may just want to give yourself the once over. Shane has the club tick remover kit.

Thanks you to everyone who helped at last night's Beacon Batch race you are all very much appreciated. The chairman of the Fell Runners Association was running last night and he told me the two things he was impressed with was the quality of the marshalling and the number of Weston club runners supporting the event. So thank you to everyone, real TEAM effort!

Congratulations to everyone who ran the 9th race of the 17/18 series of prom runs tonight and to everyone who won awards for the series. Our winners include Chris and Kieron who finished first and second overall and the team of 6 male vets who won their category, the ladies A team narrowly missed out finishing second to Clevedon. Full detail of Cat winners will be posted shortly.
There is an award for the top WAC team which will be awarded as soon as the final positions have been calculated.

Particular thanks go to everybody who helped tonight and at any point throughout the series. Without the regular job holders (you know who you are) and all of the marshals both the one mile and five mile races could not take place so thanks again on behalf of all the runners.

TWAC Monday 28/5/18

There will be hills, trail and stunning views of Wales, Beacon Batch and Crook Peak!
We will have a 1.7 mile circuit with 260ft of climb per lap – so still plenty of chance to get over 1000ft climb
Mixed surface, trail, rock, mud, and a tiny bit of road (sorry)
• Session type - Undulating loop circuit
• Session duration - 60 minutes
• Meeting Point - Lower Kewstoke Road BS22 9JX, just past Pilgrims Way. 100yds up the footpath that goes up past the quarry to the Observatory. The path is well signposted and just Look out for lots of loitering TWACs ****please go on up the path and past the houses, don't linger at the bottom next to the road as can be narrow and don't want anyone squashed by passing cars ****
• Parking - Park anywhere around the surrounding streets you can, car share if possible or run to the start?
• Meeting time - 6:50pm leaving at 7pm. Anyone late head upwards and follow the signs
• Things to bring - Drink & warm top, cider tokens, bananas, Billy kit

This year's Beacon Batch race takes place on Tuesday 19th June at 7.30pm, I'm sure you know how glorious it is to run on the trails in the area. Why not enter this years race for only £6 in Adv? Visit the Beacon Batch page for booking info. There will also be opportunities to help with marshalling, if you would like to get involved and help then please message me. Thanks

Also need to make sure we enter as Weston Athletic Club NOT Weston Athletics Club. That pesky S.

Jim [WAC]

Posted : 21:15
I imagine Full on Sport have a way of checking that they pick up everybody connected with a club when there is a team prize.

However of the 50 or so entries 37 were under Weston Athletic Club so we should use that as our name and ask everyone to change their club (saved in the FOS entry system) when they next enter a race through FOS. Some of the other versions make quite amusing reading.

Perhaps we should agree a single format of our club name for future races? WAC maybe?
