Lesley. Your vet category has now been amended. Will let you know if the Buff turns up.
Big thanks to all the Marshalls yesterday. We have had a message from a competitor and I wonder if anyone can help:
"At the end of the first loop I passed my jacket to a marshal but couldn’t find it at the end. If someone hands it in or reports it I’d be very grateful! It’s a karrimor blue wind lightweight jacket with orange zips and had half a packet of haribo and a berocca energy packet in the pocket."
Just wanted to say thanks to the organisers and all the helpers for an almost perfect Cracker yesterday. Now if you could just turn the wind down a bit next year ...
Merr Christmas to all. Phil

Hi. I very much enjoyed the run today. Lovely, friendly marshals and the bad weather held off until the afternoon. Thank you to everyone involved in providing the event.
I have a couple of points:
1. My age category is shown as V40 but I should be V60 - the female is correct. Please can this be corrected?
2. Near Uphill, I lost my black buff, black with a multi coloured pattern. I wonder if it has been handed in?
Congratulations to all the runners who braved the strong cold winds to compete in our Christmas Cracker races today.
A big thank you to everyone who came and helped make the race happen. A huge team of marshals both inside race HQ and outside on the course did an amazing job in challenging conditions. For those out on the course it was a very cold job and must have been really difficult. I have received many positive comments and thanks from runners to you all.
No matter how small or large the role you played it was all very important in making it a safe and enjoyable race for the 2000+ runners.
A job very well done. Thank you.

Congratulations to all the runners who competed in our races last night. A wet and cold evening made it unpleasant for all our marshals who did a great job as usual. Without their help we would not have a race. Good to see all the juniors back and running in our newly formatted races. Thanks to the team who made it all happen.

PRESIDENTS BREAKFAST RUN
1st December 2019
This annual event has been cancelled for this year only, due simply to safety reasons, currently both Janet and I are hobbling around, one with a fractured ankle (me) and the other (Janet) awaiting a hip replacement. For example a minor slip in a crowded kitchen with very hot dishes etc could lead to a serious outcome. Therefor I'm confident you will understand my concerns, but I can assure you with my band of regular volunteers we can all look forward to a social run and full English breakfast around this time next year, as we will be back.
I have two entries available for the Christmas Cracker this year as myself and my partner are now unable to make it. Please let me know if you would like one or both!
Monday 04 November 2019
I'm getting a order up together, if your want anything ( Hoodie, Zoodie, Jacket, Cap or Sports Bag )now is the time, especially as Christmas is close. Remember it's money up front,
and should you wish to pay direct.
Our bank details ; HSBC , A/c 61100432, Sort Code 40-46-18,
Please include your name and also drop me a note with size.
Wednesday 30 October 2019
Hi there. Would anyone like a plake in the Sodbury Slog this year? Due to injury, I am unable to run it.
Friday 25 October 2019
Congratulations to all the athletes who competed in our prom races last night. As always a big thank you to all those members and friends who turned out to help make it happen. Special thanks to all the team who have worked hard to allow us to bring the junior race back to life. A great job!
Sunday 13 October 2019
MENDIP MUDDLE - thank you to everyone who made today’s race such a success. It was great muddy fun running it and great to have so much encouragement from our excellent marshals all the way round. Not sure my trainers will be dry in time for the Stagger mind.
Saturday 12 October 2019

Message from our friends at the hospice
It’s the hospice’s 30th anniversary year in 2019, and one of the events we have planned is a birthday celebration night on October 19. This is a little different from most of our events in that it’s not designed as a fundraiser; rather, it is a celebration of the hospice’s 30 years to which we’re inviting staff, volunteers, and supporters.
We’re acutely aware of the magnificent support which WAC gives to the hospice each year, through the Christmas Cracker and support and participation in our own events. If anyone from the club is keen to attend, we’d love to see them there.
For background info, although this is a ticketed event at Cadbury House, the tickets are priced to cover costs, rather than to make a profit; we want the event to be as accessible as possible for those who would like to come, and so it’s first and foremost a celebration rather than a fundraiser.
The cost per ticket is just £30, which includes a glass of fizz on arrival, a three-course dinner and coffee, live music from the Lipinski Band, and then a DJ to ensure the party continues until late. It promises to be a really special occasion and a lot of fun. I’m sure your members would enjoy the evening, whether they came along in small numbers or opted to organise a bigger group.
Prior to now, tickets have been offered to staff and volunteers, but we do plan to share info about the event with the public shortly. However, we were keen to give WAC an advance heads-up, as tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis – so do please let me know if you or any of your members are keen, as we’d love to see you there.
