Hi AllJust to let you know about a new event that will be running this year.The Harptree Havoc will take place on the 3rd Feb at 10.45.The event will be 10km for adults (and it's a tough 10km too, think the end of the Dursley Dozen and you are somewhere near) and there will also be children's races which will finish at the same time as the adults race so ideal for those who usually get dragged into spectating!The race will take place on Harptree Hill, West Harptree (about 20-25 mins drive from Weston towards Bath)and will be on a totally closed and off road course, suitable for all footwear including spikes.This event will take place the week before the Tough Ten and a fortnight before the Dursley Dozen so will make an excellent warm up for the longer distance, but I can promise you a cracking event in it's own right!Please come along and support this race.There will be others to follow, including an MTB race, an MTB endurance event (8 hours), and an off road Duathlon towards the end of the year.Almost forgot, there will be prizes for winners and spot prizes too.For an entry form please e-mail marc@sole-events.co.uk or have a look on the website www.sole-events.co.uk, or even call me! 01934 425510, 07894 144595.I hope to see you there!Marc MolloySole Events

Lost. One route map of the 5 Hills Thursday Night Training Session. Last seen on Thursday night before our training session on the Weston Athletic Club notice board.Despite the wild rumours this does not mean we will be deleting the 5 hills session from our training programme! In deed as this may mean the inconvenience of reprinting our coach has indicated we may increase to 6 yes 6 hills!. It is in our best interests therefore to locate the missing route plan and return it to me asap.No reward as yet but it depends how desperate you all are not to do 1 more hill!Malcolm

Having been to school in Weston in the 1970's you forget how hard it is to run on the soft sand and against the gale force wind but i was pleased with my time of 49 mins 19 secs.

A really big thank you to all members, family and friends of Weston AC today who helped with the Christmas Cracker Race. Given the conditions early this morning the race went very well without any problems or incidents.I am pleased to say that we had 76 members helping along with some family and friends. The support was excellent and really makes the difference for all the runners giving them great support and encouragement.Many thanks for all your support and putting up with me hounding you all over recent weeks. If you have not picked up your Cracker T Shirt please let me know and I will make sure you get one. Also I have one nice black gents wrist watch which was left in the caravan, so if anyone can tell me what the make is and what it generally looks likeâ¦. its yours to keep.Thanks again.Malcolm

HiI have just completed my 4th Christmas Cracker. Apart from the extremely high winds the event was once again well organised and even though very tiring coming back on the beach, enjoyable. My only gripe is the attitude of the ladies in the baggage room. I found, on two occasions, when I handed my bag in and when I collected it, them to be patronising and impatient, not only to myself but my friend and the lady in front of me, we are not children and do not expect to be treated as such. The marshalls and everyone else made it a great day, shame these two ladies do not have the same manners.

I am now at home resting after my exertions today in my role as Race Director for the Cracker. What exertions you ask. Well I'll tell you, my jaw aches!On a more serious note, I feel really proud to be associated with the club, if not as a member then as a helper. Standing at the start watching around 1,000 competitors begin a race in atrocious conditions, many in fancy dress, impressed upon me what a reputation the club has gained over the years to attract such a gathering. It says bucket loads for the professionalism and expertise of the many club members who willingly give of their time to make this the event it is. A very personal and heartfelt thnak you to you all. Really well done.Penny Beare, the Fundraising Manager of Weston Hospicecare was at pains to thank the club for their donation of Â3,000 and I am pleased to be able to pass on her comments.Finally, it would never get done without the band of club members who make up the Cracker Committeee - you and they know who they are - You are a great bunch!

Only 3 days to go before we hold our largest ever race. With over 1600 runners we are all looking forward to a great day for runners, spectators and helpers alike. For those who have volunteered your roles are now posted on this site (see welcome page) All helpers will be well looked after with refreshments provided. If you enjoy yourselves the runners and their spectators will also have a great time!!. In the race literature we have encouraged runners to give us feedback through any of our official marshals so please actively look for ideas and feedback and let me have anything you get either on the day or afterwards so we can build on this for next year. Please donâ™t forget to thank the runners you speak to for supporting our event.I shall be at training on Thursday if you have any questions or alternatively e mail or phone me.Many thanks for your support.

Re; Presidents Breakfast Run this Sat morning, I understand some people don't know of it's where abouts. So to assist on a prompt start. The paper version is O/S map 182, Weston-super-Mare & Bridgwater Area. ST 395. 567. Obtained for just a few pounds from a good stationersor for those with Navagational devises (Sat Nav's) costing many pounds, the Post Code; BS25 1DY should find it. If you approach Barton (14 houses including farms) from Winscombe, it's the second lane left, up the hill by the side of an old cottage. Miss it and you will end up going onto The Webbington. Paul has mapped a route for the run but unforunately I have no 'Sat Nav' references for it!Sorry.

PROM RACEAfter such a fabulous response to my last message (no one) we feel the prom run could possibly be run by a group of people and not just one individual. Clearly the more people we have to rely on the less people will have to undertakeâ¦. So if you feel you would like to give something back to the club and put your name forward then please let me know by e-mail. Very little will happen until next seasons series but we need to plan ahead if we are to keep this race going. I look forward to being inundated!

As most of you know Dave Jones is stepping down from his role as race director for the prom races at the end of this season. Without anyone coming forward to take the series over the club is in danger of loosing a very high profile and popular race.

They find some beautiful bits of coastline. There is also the option of a marathon, half-marathon and 10k on every one. Would be nice to see some more WAC faces there!

Really sorry to hear Shaun is no longer going to be webmaster. Sean does a fantastic job and I don't think any of us really understand the time and effort involved in keeping the website up to date and finding results so quick.Our website is used by many clubs looking for the calendar of events and results. I've even come accross a club site that tells people to look on our website!

We have a fantastic website and as has already been said is recognised as such by many within the running community. Shaun has done an excellent job and my only concern apart from finding someone else to take it on is â¦â¦..does this mean he will be training more and running even faster??? Oh no!Just when Neale and myself were begining to get into the top 3 WAC runners at the prom runs!I am sure the webmasters job is very time consuming and you need to be a techno thingy to work it, so that rules me out as I cant even spell names properly.Well done Shaun and thanks for a fantastic website,

I would also like to say what a fantastic job Shaun has done. This is really a super website with runners from many clubs using it. The speed at which results go up as always impressed me.Well done Shaun (If you could slow down a bit more I would be very gratefully - say 5 minutes at the next prom)

A fantastic well done to all those who turned up for last night's stuffing party (& for those who don't know, it's not as exciting as it sounds!!). Getting out the Cracker literature is always something of a challenge, but you managed it last night in record time! I don't intend to comment on the relative merits of the 2 teams!!Once again, thanks very much.

Important Message for all WAC Club MembersI am pleased to announce that the club is about to provide a quality long sleeved Weston A/C Winter Training Top to all current 2007 Club Members.As we are making this a one off purchase it is important that we get the sizing right as we have to order the correct amount of tops and sizes. You therefore have two options;-1. Let us know what size you want and thatâ™s the size you will get. (It may be difficult or impossible to then exchange for a different size).2. Come along to one of the Thursday Night Training Sessions over the coming weeks where a sample of the shirt and sizes will be available for you to try on. If you choose option 1 then please E Mail or phone myself or Dave with your size.Any questions please phone or speak to me at training.Malcolm

Good to see al the Weston A/C Members getting prepared for this weekâ™s prom race. Forecast is overcast but very low wind speed so I guess this means excellent prom race weather and PB conditions.On an important note can I remind all Weston Club Members to wear their Club Vest when racing. I know the training T shirts are popular but they are for training. If you need extra protection from the cold simply wear the vest over the top of the T shirt or a long sleeved shirt. If you are waiting for a club vest I shall have plenty available on the night.See you all there.Malcolm

F.A.O. Lesley Lightweight and the rest of the Ladies Prom B TeamI told you we should resign ourselves to that wooden spoon for the current prom series. Sounds like you won't be in PB form (if you're running at all) on Thursday, and given the absolutely pathetic run I had this morning I'd be lucky to do sub 1 hour!I only went from home down to the sea front & back (no hills!) and it felt like wading through treacle. Legs now knackered after that whopping 5 mile run (in 50 minutes??!!!!!!). Time to trade in the trainers for the sofa me thinks!!

I am pleased to announce that we now have 1600 runners arriving on Weston Sea Front on December 9th for the 2007 Christmas Cracker.This is more than we have ever had before and depends on the full support of Club Members to make it a great day for all of those willing runners.This is the one event of the year when members do not run but they do help as without you the event simply would not happen. The 2006 event raised nearly Â10,000 for Weston Hospicecare which is a great achievement and one which everyone involved should be very proud of.A big thank you to all those members who have already offered their services on the day and if I have not spoken to you yet about helping........ I soon will!!This is a great day for members and runners alike and if you are able to marshal and help you will really enjoy it with free refreshments and a great atmosphere.If you can help and I have not yet spoken to you please let me know.

I have kept my quiet and not got involved in the boys v girls saga, nowadays i try to be more tolerant with everyone ( i speak to Jonesy ),but as talk of a joint night out with the no tails continues i have to speak my mind.We dont want you spoiling our fun ,drinking, looking at tottie , belching ,f##ting ,eating vindaloo's and we don't think you would be capable of surviving this soiree.But in a spirit of mediation i have drawn up alist of top tottie who will be made most welcome. I have also included reasons behind selection, so here goes..Phil Richards- shoots horses, got two boys names,drinks bucketloads, quicker than me.Pippa Stephens- Can explain any injury problems, and knows lots of rugby songsSue (Stan)White- Masseuse enough saidRuth (ginger)White- Laughs at my jokes,navigational skills good for journey home.Claud Mercer- as illegitimate offspring of travelling russian vodka salesman can handle her liquor , also high pitched cackle will scare off any ne'er do wells.Alas the rest of you can stick to your pot pourri,crochet,ironing because you ain't coming.

For those of us that are apparently into crocheting, pot pourri and ironing (!!!) we have a table booked at 8pm on Friday 2nd at the Old Thatched Cottage. I have a lovely selection of new knitting patterns we can spend the evening looking over and discussing. If anyone wants to bring their needles feel free. So far we have Geraldine, Ginnie, Pam, Sue, Ruth, Claudine and myself booked in. Anyone else interested needs to let me know by Tuesday please so I can book extra seats.PS. Marks & Spencers has a new line in seasonal pot pourri in store. Really worth a look.!!!

All Weston AC Blokes.Give your ears a rest and escape the female chit-chat and come out for lads night out. Beer swilling is not compulsary and I am sure the converstaion will be cleaner than that discussed at the recent, so called 'Ladies' nite out.So, I need to know final numbers to confirm the ten-pin bowling alley by Monday.If you haven't seen my previous postings or I haven't managed to talk to you in the last couple of weeks, here is the low down:Come and join a few mates for a few beers, couple of games of ten-pin bowling (Â10) followed by a curry (Â?).Friday 2nd November7:30@ AMF Bowl, Weston2 games followed by a curry and a beer.(You might even squeeze a pint out of the Birthday Boy!)So, Please contact me as soon as possible as I need to confirm numbers for the bowling alley and the indian. Email or call 07793 715396Confirmed to date: Rob M, Chris D, Malc, Matt, Neale, Steve B, Bryan, Adrian N, Andy S.I have spoken to and I am waiting for confirmation from Jim White and Pete Telford.Dave

It would seem as though I have hit a raw nerve with the Sparrow. So, just for clarification, what do girlies talk about on their nights out? Heated arguments about the recent GB v NZ netball match? Thoughtful discussion about the recent Capital Gains Tax changes introduced by Mr Darling in his pre-budget speech? Maybe, light hearted banter about the rise and fall of Britney Spears and her musical career? I think not! It's cake recipes, blokes, crochet, vodka, the merits of various hair removal products and the latest snippets from gossip magazines!

To all prom runners. Unfortunately we experienced technical difficulties with the timing equipment during last night's race. We have recorded times for positions 1-69 and 174-237, but are missing the times in-between. We apologize for this. If you finished between 70th and 173rd and know your approximate finish time, then please let us know. We will do our best to produce a decent result sheet. Contact Dave Jones on 01934 414361 or if you can help. Thank-you for your assistance.

I think what RM meant to say was that it was quality over quantity with regard to the 'nights out'. Boys nights are filled with fun, frolics, beer and curry. Girls nights are all about knitting, giggles, Mills & Boon romance novels and idle chatter about who rates in the top 10 bloke totty in the club. Us blokes are above all of that, we have intelligent conversations about the merits of the 4-4-2 system in football and the dominance of the England forwards in the recent rugby matches. By all means girls, have your frequent nights out which fade in the memory......when blokes have a night out they pass into folklore!

Come on Gerry, do you really think that you can compete with one of the legendary âœboys nightsâ. I know we donâ™t have them very often but thatâ™s only because, at our age, they take so long to recover from. You know that, unlike you girls, we have tried to include you in a night out but even the pint swilling PB had to admit defeat in the end. So far itâ™s only Ginger Ruth whoâ™s kept pace with the lads but she doesnâ™t half start talking rubbish at the end of the night. But always up for a mixed social if you ladies want to arrange something.

Very well done to Bryan and everyone who helped at yesterdays race, I think the feedback on Runners World sums it up very well. 'New organiser this year built on an already well honed race , a great example of a superb club run event , cudos to Weston Athletic' .This puts us in great shape as we prepare for the next big club race. The Christmas Cracker on December 9th. I shall be contacting all members over the coming weeks to ask for your support on the biggest day of the club's race calendar. We will have 1600 runners who will depend on us all to make sure the race is well organised so thats why we need everyone's help. We have a special requirement this year for anyone who may have access to a small commercial vehicle (e.g. Ford Transit). Please let me know if you can help with this.Malcolm 07807 381820

Dont forget VIRGINIA its the Prom Run this Thursday!Kate (Unattached)Just to clear up a misinterpretation of Jo's message, she was looked after by the club, another member stayed with her for the duration of the run. I can only apologise if this was not the case when you ran with us, but can only assume certain regular members were not there on that night as we would not allow this to have happened.On a positive note, i am glad you are enjoying your running with the WRN, Kira and many other WAC members have done a fantastic job and we actively promote this as an option for those who find our sessions too much.

(im sorry i posted it now!!)as i explained on the night, i am good with the distance you guys run but not so good with the pace, this is why i decided i wouldnt come again. however, i would prefer to run 8 miles than 5.i hope this has cleared things up for everyone and once again you were all great with me. so, thursdays esporta run, where do we meet and what time?

You had a big pair of shoes to fill as Roger has, over the years, done such a great job but you really did a fantastic job and I hope it will be not only the first of many but also encourage other club members to get involved and take over what are key club events.

Judging by the number of enquiries I have had for entries on the day, we are heading towards a record attendance! Therefore, if you want an 'Entry on the day' place you shouldn't leave it to the last minute. Cheques (Â12 payable to Weston AC) would be preferred to cash if entrering on the day. I look forward to seeing you on the day!----------------------------------------Follow on note to that of below:The RNLI have now 'press ganged' another volunteer to marshal out on the course.

Muddle Update=============Dear WAC Members, Friends and Family,First of all a BIG thank you to all those club members who have volunteered to assist with various tasks at the Muddle on Sunday. I have now finalised the task allocation and have a list available which I can share with you all tonight after training. I will also post the list on this message board later today.For those allocated as Marshals I need you to meet me at the Charterhouse Centre at about 9am on Sunday to pick up your Marshal 'Pack' (bin bags, tabbard, map, contact numbers etc). Please can I ask Marshals to bring along their mobile phones (if you have one) and ensure I have your contact number BEFORE Sunday.For the other jobs, I will be in Charterhouse from 8am on Sunday to guide you in what is required. I will include a time from which I will need your help later tonight.Once again, thank you for your help. It looks like we will have a record turnout so the club will need as much help as possible.P.S. Lesley Cowell - I would be grateful if you could meet with me tonight (or on Friday/Saturday) as I would like you to do the data entry on the laptop please. I will need to go through this with you as it's complicated! Many thanks.

Once more unto the breach, dear friends,once more;Or close the wall up with our english dead!In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility,But when the blast of war blows in our ears then imitate the action of the tiger.Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard favoured rage; Then lend the eye a terrible aspect.On, on you noblest english! Whose blood is fet from fathers of war proof; Fathers that, like so many Alexanders, have in these parts from morn till even fought, and sheathed their swords for lack of argument.And you, good yeoman,whose limbs were made in England, show us here the mettle of your pasture.I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips, straining upon the start. The games afoot; Follow your spirit, and, upon this charge cry GOD FOR JOHNNY, ENGLAND AND ST GEORGE.

If anyone is interested, I am doing some reconnaisance runs this weekend in preparation for the Muddle on the 14th October.1) Saturday 9.30am - From Tynings Farm, up the track, along to Roberrow Warren woods, along to and across Dolebury Warren, along to Rowberrow and up the hill to Tynings (approx 5 miles).2) Sunday 9.30am - From Charterhouse Centre and following the Muddle route until Tynings Farm and then returning back to Charterhouse (approx 7 miles).I know most of you are doing the Oldbury 10 / Burnham Half but if anyone is at a loose end you're more than welcome to join me.

CLEVEDON SPLASH AND DASHA few Weston Ac ers took part in these events this/last year, so thought I would let you know about the last one of this year.Ideal as an end of season run out?The 2nd annual Clevedon Splash and Dash is being run this year on Sunday 28 Oct from 1pm at Strode Leisure Centre, Clevedon.Following the huge success of last year's event, the race organisers, Clevedon Swimming Club and North Somerset Council, will keep the same venue and the original swim/run format.There have however been a few exciting additions to this year's event. As well as separate events for each age group, from 8 years old through to adults, there will also be a relay event so those who feel that they are not so strong in either of the disciplines can team up with a partner.Competitors will swim in the pool before changing into running gear and setting off on a course round the sports centre grounds before finishing back at the pool. Distances are dependant on the age of competitors.This event is ideal for first time competitors, so if you have ever thought about taking part in a triathlon, or if you are just keen to try something new as a way of getting back into sport, come and give the Splash and Dash a go.For more information and to get your entry form contact Marc Molloy, Sports Development Officer at North Somerset Council on 01275 812049 or 07776 170188 or email marc.molloy@n-somerset.gov.ukCheersMarc

Phil M raises an excellent point....I was remarking to Mr Washburn on Sunday what a pile of poop the goody bag for the Bristol Half was this year. It wasn't that long ago you could have feasted for a week on the food they chucked in the bag. It really wasn't worth the effort this year, especially lugging than d@mn soup up Jacob Wells Road to get to the car. Humphhh!

Pie Man Schama [Baking Historian - Weston & Worle News]

Posted : 20:22
The Demise of Phil O'Pastry===========================As you all will be aware, our old friend and baking enthusiast, Phil O'Pastry, recently popped his clogs. The journalistic and baking worlds will be all the more empty for his passing.His untimely end was brought about by the sheer disappointment of the baking wares produced by Rachael Vincent. As a friend and a close working colleague in the highly pressurised journalistic world of local news, Phil and I regularly shared stories of cakes provided to the famished Weston AC runners following the summer social runs. Who can forgot the controversy surrounding the Withers biscuits fiasco?It would seem as though the final straw for Phil O'Pastry were the burnt cakes offered to the runners at The Swan a number of weeks ago. At first Phil thought that Rachael had mistakingly put bar-b-que brickettes in the tupperware by mistake. However it transpired that these were actually flap jack type efforts burnt to a crisp.As a baking historian, I am reminded of the story of Alfred the Great who in AD 878 narrowly avoided capture following a surprise attack by Vikings. Alfred, King of Wessex, managed to flee into the marshes of Somerset. It was here that legend says he famously burnt the cakes of a local housewife while musing upon his predicament. Further investigation reveals that this local housewife was called Rachael de Vincente. It would seem that the ability to burn cakes is passed down the generations to modern times.I hope Phil O'Pastry is now at peace. God rest his soul.

Glad to hear you kept up the hard work last week Rich, i will struggle to make this sunday as well but intend to do my long run on bank holiday monday 8.30 if anyone interested and will be back as normal next sunday. It would be good to see the goofy one again mind you he probably won't train with us mere mortals.

Ladies and Gentlemen, It is with great delight, perhaps not for some, that I have finished editing a small motion picture from the pleasant evening stroll I took last Wednesday. It just happen that it was at the same time and place that 100 sweaty runners stumbled and clambered over the summits of Crook Peak and Wavering Down. Honest.Anyway, the video footage of the Cake Race is freely available for all to see on YouTube (sorry).Oh, if anyone wanted a copy on CD then let me know and I’ll be more than happy to burn one…. I mean make one, for you…

Neil - Won't be out on Sunday (working !). Dunny and I were holding the fort last Sunday and will be out again next week.Anyone looking to build a solid fitness base ready for 2008 should get themselves along to The Swan, Rowberrow, Sunday mornings at 8:30am. Great run and plenty of places to cut back if you don't fancy or simply don't feel up to the full loop.

Notice for all Weston A/C Members. Your Club Needs You!!In the next few months we have two of our club races which need your support to make sure they continue to be successful and run smoothly on the day.

For anyone looking for something tough may I please quote an email from one of the organisers of 'The Rhayader Trail' on trying to make us feel better about why, after reaching CP4, we were not allowed to carry on the full route (what a relief wanted a bus) but sent on an 8 mile shortcut to finish at 37miles (instead of 43). Basically we were too slow to meet the cut off times as unlike the Montrail Ultra Running Series Competitors we were unable to levitate across open moor land but instead spent much of the day with ankles 4ft in different directions, a face full of tuffty grass being ambushed by evil welsh frogs as we waded around the route description of 'very rough ground' with hypothermia, cursing never again as we were over taken by what one fellow bog swimmer described as our Nan & Granddad...'Hope you have both recovered from your ordeal. With conditions underfoot plus yucky weather it turned out to be really tough, the Montrail guys reckoned it was the toughest race of the series for 2007 and 'broke' many a good runner. They had 35 starters, 22 finished and 13 'Retired' ( totally lost or short routed). Don't feel at all bad by how you both did, you can only do your best and you both did well to survive to the finish completing what you did. Better than some more experienced runners. Anyway, once you have recovered your sense of humour ( I think it was coming back slowly ?), got over the frog phobia - no deaths yet from knife wielding Welshfrogs - maybe you will come back again one day? It really is great in good weather ....... honest; Thursdays are sometimes nice in Wales!!! All the best, hope this hasn't put you off for ever - far tougher than I anticipated. Matt'

I agree it was a disappointing result and we totally underestimated the regeneration of the English squad after the bruising defeat we inflicted upon the English in Cardiff earlier this year only to shatter their six nation dreams. It’s only with the benefit of hind sight that we now realise we should have sent more that our C team to this friendly pre season warm up. I’m not selling my world cup tickets just yet.

Well I have to say that this years outdoor pursuits night was the best yet. (and I only did the archery!). The evening was a great success with everyone getting very wet and muddy......well almost everyone. Highlight must surely be Geraldine and Pams expressions as their raft disintegrated beneath them and the inevitability of getting very very wet became a stark reality. Well done Mendip Outdoor pursuits, all the competitors and most importantly Neil for organising a great evening.

Been made aware of your messages, so felt it polite to respond personally! Firstly, I feel it is healthy that this is being discussed. Junior Athletics in North Somerset has been neglected for many years, and it is time to put this right! to Mr (or Mrs) 'I smell a rat', please do not judge me before you have met or spoken to me. Negativity like yours is what holds progress back! Speak to me, listen to what I have to say, then form an opinion please!There is no hidden agenda here, I will try to explain what is happening, and what we hope to achieve.I used to Coach Sprints at Clevedon AC. I had become aware of some talented performers in other events due to visits to local Primary Schools. As Clevedon were not set up to support this I set up my own Group during September 2004 which commenced with 4 members. We now have 250+ members of all abilities from 8-16. I am a firm believer that children should be encouraged to be involved in sport, health and fitness. We want children to enjoy our sport, so have structured it with the Athletes in mind. Athletes who show ability will be asked to join North Somerset Athletics Academy (currently ages 10-15)to allow them to develop their skills, learn about conditioning, nutrition and core skills. This has proved successful as during 2007 we have already produced 1 National Champion, 5 National Medallists, 7 Regional Champions and 13 County Champions.For those who are concerned at NSC'c involvement, I want to confirm that this whole development, vision, energy, and enthusiasm has come from me (sorry to sound arrogant, but true). NSC are involved because we need them if we are to ever get our track, and they have been supportive of our efforts! We hope to talk to them about 'where' and 'when', not 'if' a track can happen in the next couple of months. This has come directly as a result of what we have done previously. We have no intention of taking over Weston AC, we have over 250 young athletes, and I believe we have only scratched the surface (particularly in Weston)and 'we' could double this number in the next 2 years if we pool our resources, ideas etc. This, along with a track, would enable us to take on bristol & west ac, and not lose all decent athletes to them! I hope you can (at least) see my passion for the subject. We are already talking to Portishead AC about a working relationship, and hope this meeting will encourage at least one or two others to see the future of Athletics for juniors as rosy! I am very proud of what 'we' have achieved so far, and intend pushing this all the way to create an Athletics Scene as large and positive as in other areas in The South West.If anyone has any questions they wish me to answer, my mobile is 07952 736032, email chrisbtg@blueyonder.co.ukThanks for your time!Chris Millard

I was interested to hear the debate about NSAC last eve. (sorry, I've not been keeping up with the notice borad).As I understand it NASC is a vehicle set up by Chris Millard et al. to allow him to continue to provide coaching to kids in North Somerset. I believe Chris was effectively forced to set this up 'affilliated clud' due to constraints imposed by UK Athletics, which otherwise might have forced him to close down. My 10 year old has been going to Chris's Saturday morning sessions in Clevedon for around a year, and both he and his 8 year old brother enjoy the session Chris runs in our local junior school in C'bury. From my observations these sessions are very well run and provide an ideal opportunity for kids to transition for PE in schools to an external club environment. The kids really enjoy these sessions and anything which gets kids off the sofa and into the fresh air has to be a good thing IMHO.I see no threat to WAC or any other established club. Indeed there may be opportunities to use NSAC as a feeder for the club.For more information you might like like to check out: http://www.fitnessontrack.co.uk/NSAC.htm

WESTON AC - THE USUAL SUSPECTSHi cake lovers! Firstly, my apologies for not submitting my report earlier. The reason for this is simple, some of our readers just don't like these post cake analysis reports. My suspicions are that the most vocal of these readers is actually from another club so I can only assume he/she is just jealous of the wonderful culinary delights which befall us during the summer months.Now, for the review of the cakes provided by the Cowell family. Indeed it was a family effort by the look of it with proud parents and both daughters oozing excitement from all pores.They had every right to be excited for what was to unfold was truly exceptional and indeed, unique. First up was what can only be described as a police line up but with a twist. Cunningly crafted out of gingerbread and delicate icing were figurines of all our favourite characters from Weston AC. A personal favourite was the depiction of Shaun Callaghan with what can only be described as a Dalek like probe on his head. This is course was a refernce to his headlamp when used on Tuesday night training sessions. Papa Smurf was also included in the line up although I may be confusing it with reference to the bearded members of the club. All in all a marvellous effort and truly unique. Ok, I know the figures we not home baked but the artisitic icing and wonderful presentation tray were excellent.Also on offer were fancy fairy cakes with the wings angled at precisely 45 degrees (mandatory according to Mrs Beeton). The sponge was light and fluffy and whilst not in the same league as the Team line-up effort, it served only to enhance the growing reputation of the Cowell's as Master Bakers.Last up was a marvellous Ginger Cake. This too was excellent and the sponge was so springy, it returned to its original shape after being squeezed. It tasted great too, just the right amount of flavour to stimulate the palette.The only thing that detracted from the evening was the lack of a three tiered cake stand but marks have to go to the Cowells again as the net was cast far and wide in order to obtain one.The bar has now been raised up another notch by the Cowells. Can they be beaten? Still plenty of time to go but they have set an impressive standard.

Thanks Gerry for your message, much appreciated. No toe photos this time although do appear to have a twisted ankle but lucky it doesn't photo well. Meanwhile I've got to say the biggest thing was driving there and back as you all now how I drive everywhere! I have taken photos to prove how tight I can really be in that I made myself a tent in the back of the car and slept outside the Travelodge at Reading Services and in a farmyard at the event. For anyone who'd like to do it next year the organiser did say this (the 7th) would be his last one as he needed to get on with his life as should probably I now unless anyone knows of a cheap 50-100miler coming up in this country?

I actually moved away from Weston but still have friends in the Club (or did). But yes, if you want to bring kids into the sport, and develop talent, my view is you won't attract them with baking cakes. You need good coaches and fresh ideas, not flapjacks.Bring it on.

Cockney Sparrow

Posted : 12:29
I agree Firestarter with your points regarding kids, however, some of us older members joined the club not just to keep fit but to also enjoy the social side, so bring it on cakes and all!!!

Enough…Enough… North Somerset have only asked if were interested in attending a meeting to discuss getting youth more involved in the sport and how we, along with other clubs, may be able to help. Unless I have missed something I really don’t think this is a ploy for an aggressive take over of our club. Personally I think if you’re a member of Weston AC and want to run for enjoyment to keep fit and be social then great. If, however, we attract those who want to progress that bit further then great lets encourage as I believe our club is not only big enough but we have the enthusiasm to accommodate all requirements. As for those who want to bring fresh ideas to the club those of us on the committee are always willing to listen.

A couple of things....1) Let's hear what the North Somerset Athletic Club has to offer before forming an opinion. If it's for youth development then this is good news because WAC don't have such a set up.2) If WAC is to grow, or even to stand still, we will need fresh blood joining the club. We therefore need to form links with NSAC to ensure that Clevedon, Nailsea and Bristol don't get all the good talent coming through. We need a slice of the pie too!....and now for something completely different...great cakes last night from the Cowells but I wonder what Phil O'Pastry will have to say?

I understand the North Somerset Athletics Club is already in existence and is affiliated to UK Athletics. The club has been set up and is already recruiting at a junior level to promote sport in the area and I know of one (juniors) club who have recently 're-badged', taken subscriptions and issued nice new T-shirts. From the little I know I don't see it as a threat or 'Bush' world dominance approach...just another educational/promotional initiative. Maybe some of our North Somerset insiders could find out more?

As an employee within the sports development team at North Somerset Council the proposed club will be all about supporting junior level athletes. See it as an opportunity to feed enthuastic youngsters into the sport which at present needs to progress forward so that it is happening in a colabrative manner. To move forward the exsiting 'club' (currently called the North Somerset Academy) needs to affliate under UK athletics etc, etc and become an offical athletics club supporting youngsetrs across N Somerset not just in Weston. I am sure it will be a case of NSC asking clubs such as ourselves what we can, what we would like to do and/or how we might want to contribute in supporting and providing such opport. for youngsters in our sport

The if it ain't broke don't fix it view is all very well with regard to the NSAC proposal. In my experience (okay so far short lived!!) bigger structures are whats needed to increase youth participation, improve standards and to give north somerset athletics national recognition instead of a backwater.

Phil Richards posted her second sub-12 hour Ironman to finish in 11:50:04.

Phil O'Pastry (Baking Correspondent) [Weston & Worle News]

Posted : 23:38
PIPSTA THE RESCUE AFTER CAKE SNUB==================================In this correspondent's quest to find the pinnacle of cake baking genius, one has travelled far and wide across this fair isle of ours. From Worle to Weston, from Bleadon to Bourneville and from Loxton to Locking Road I have sampled wares ofvarying quality and quantity. Indeed, this week your correspondent reports from foreign climes in his quest for luscious lemon cake, tasty teacakes and scrumptious sponge cake. After a numbing cross country trek across numerous A and B roads,you find me tapping away in rainy Wales.You may be wondering, why Wales? Was it the rolling hills, the dramatic scenery or maybe an attempt to become a cunning linguist that drew me to this Celtic land? Well no, it was because it was a free holiday. However, whilst here I have been determined to sample the 'bywd lleol' (local food) and get a 'blas o Gymru' (taste of Wales).Well, to be honest, I haven't. So far this week I have sampled lemon drizzle cake and carrot cake all the way from......Cornwall.....courtesy of the mother-in-law. Mighty fine the cake was too!Your correspondent is due to go for a run tomorrow as he missed his normal Sunday jaunt. But the thought of this trek (it's nearly 10 miles there and back to the nearest town of Machynlleth) is making me hungry and my mind is drawn to the previous week and the Thursday social run.The evening promised much as at the same venue last year, the Penscott Inn at Shipham, we sampled a carrot cake from the Weston AC chairman. However, in a snub to his fellow club mates, the chairman was nowhere to be seen this year, citing a lack of baking implements. With the evening threatening to turn into a disappointing damp squib, the tension could have been cut with a knife. However, the event was saved when not one but two batches of cakes were produced. As this correspondentreports on home baked cakes only, it was Pipsta's wares that came under the spot light for the purposes of this review.As one may have deduced from my previous reports, there are a number of categories which are considered when forming an opinion about the cakes on offer. Let me summarise these for you:1) Taste - very important as if the taste is isn't there no amount of fine lace doilies will cover it up.2) Presentation - almost as important as the taste itself. A cake served on a quality doilie and serving plate almost tastes better as a result.3) Consistency - a Victoria sponge which is as dry as a bone will sap the moisture from your mouth and leave you dissatisfied but over do the moisture and the cake disintegrates on your plate.4) The X-Factor - not something that can be easily described but it's either there or not. That 'je ne sais quoi' is all so important and separates the wheat from the chaff, or the lemon drizzle cake from the brillo pads.Now to Pipsta's cakes. There were three varieties on offer....although it wasn't until I was about to leave that the third offering was put before me. And what a welcome surprise it was! This correspondent is a big fan of glace cherries (did the Pipsta get a tip off?) and the oatie, cherry type flappy jacky thingy was like a troop of soldiers marching their way over my taste buds. The cherries added a splash of moisture just when it was needed. Just like a politician's speech, the best was saved until last, which was as well as the previous offerings were not quite up to the same standard. All three varieties had treacle overtones, whether by design or baking faux pas. From such a sophisticated and successful performer, both in trainers and on a horse, it was a surprise and disappointment that the offerings were produced from a well worn tupperware container and, I can hardly bring myself to say it, ice cream containers! This was a major oversight but there was worse to come. Ok, I can just about get over the fact that ice cream tubs were used for the cake storage, however for those containers to be emblazoned with the likes of 'Sainsburys' and 'Iceland' vanilla soft scoop was a step too far. I would have expected a more high brow choice of ice cream such as 'Waitrose' Cornish Clotted Cream vanilla ice cream or 'Carte d'Or' tutti frutti. In addition, the Pipsta may have been guilty of mixed food stuff storage as one of the lids was inscribed with the wording 'Sausage rolls' and curiously 'SM'. I can only assume the 'SM' referred to the storage of furry handcuffs or perhaps a gimp mask or two?In summary however, the Pipsta, despite the storage oversight, served up a trio of tongue tingling treats. The X-factor was there too. The runners were initially content with the open sandwich fingers but to be presented with a surprise home bakedcake offerings from the Pipsta was a real bonus. Well done!Until next time cake lovers, this is Phil O’Pastry over and out.

This little bird needs to know just who is on the cake judging committee.

In other words I reckon my cakes are still top of the pops!!!

Thursdays run promises to be another good one.Meeting at the Penscott Inn ,Shipham .

'Drizzle only goes to improve tired runners spirits despite being caked in mud'Following the inaugural running of the Locking Lollop, many runners from Weston AC were feeling tired from the hilly terrain they endured during the social run. Their spirits were lifted however when presented with an interesting array of cakes by this week's master bakers, Gerry and Ginnie. Due to location restrictions imposed by the local landlord, runners were forced to partake in the consumption of the cakes from a car bonnet in a nearby car park. Valiant efforts were made to improve the presentation of the cakes by the use of doilies (a WAC first), however the use of tins and tupperware, instead of fine bone china serving dishes, was disappointing.Now onto the cakes themselves. First up was a yoghurt cake. Ginnie, ever the showman, sliced through the soft yoghurt flavoured topping with finesse and showed knife mastery by cutting through the moist sponge evenly. No wedge shaped portoins here....it was cut to perfection. A slight disappointment was the lack of plates, be they paper or china, however the kitchen roll provided was adorned with pretty multicoloured flowers. Now for the tasting.....the yoghurt topping hit the taste buds with subtlety but the arrival of the moist sponge on the palate yielded a taste sensation that captivated the senses. A fine result and certainly worthy of consideration should an end of season bake off be required.Now to the other cakes. We were presented with individual chocolate sponge cakes with a compliment of apple & walnut cakes. Both looked satisfactory in their own right although a light dusting of icing sugar would have enhanced the appearance further. One shouldn't be too critical here as the sponge in both varities was moist meaning that it slipped nicely down the throat, lubricated of course by the chocolate topping or apple as applicable. Regretably this reporter did not get to sample the fourth cake variety on offer as he was too full up on the Mars/Milky Way bars sampled mid-run, however reports from colleagues paint a pleasing picture of a good quality drizzle cake which complimented the other three cake varieties on offer. Overall, a very creditable 3 out of 5 and a marked improvement on the brillo pads from the previous year.

**** LOCKING LOLLOP - Thursday 31st May 7pm - Start/Finish at The Coach House, Locking ****Dear AllDon't forget the inaugural running of the Locking Lollop on Thursday. The route is sorted and I am pleased to advise that as an added bonus I have included mud, puddles, nettles and brambles to the usual grass and tarmac. In light of the rain in the last day or so I would recommend off road shoes if you have them. The landlord of The Coach House (BS24 8DG) in Locking is asking that we limit the number of cars parking in the pub car park where possible so please use the car park in the 'Manor Court Shopping Precinct' car park (off Meadow Drive) or side roads initially. Everyone should meet at the pub for a 7pm start. Now the bad news.....the landlord is also not keen on us bringing cakes into the pub either (does he want our business?) so we'll have to chomp on those delights in the 'Manor Court Shopping Precinct' car park before heading inside the pub for liquid refreshment. When I say 'Precinct' it's not exactly The Mall at Cribbs Causeway. I would suggest the Master Bakers, Ginnie and Gerry, park in the precinct if they can. Unfortunately there is only one pub in Locking so we are somewhat limited for choice of start/finish venues. If anyone has any questions please give me a ring on 07867 821915. I look forward to seeing you all on Thursday.P.S. There are rumours that Mr Morgan will be joining us on his bicycle.P.P.S. There will also be a couple of guest runners, Cally and Tracey, so please make them welcome. No Jenko! Not in that way!

Mine may not have tsasted the best, however:Post Original Shredded Wheat is a heart-healthy, ready-to-eat cereal made with 100% natural whole grain wheat and no added sugar. Delicious whole grain foods like Original Shredded Wheat (coated in chocolate!!!) are not milled, so they retain naturally-occurring fiber and nutrients that you need every day. Studies show that diets rich in whole grains may help lower your risk of heart disease as part of a diet low in cholesterol and saturated fat.*Who else can say that about their cakes, I'd like to know!!!

The chairman of Weston Athletic Club, whose motto reads 'Let them eat cake!', was forced into making a statement, distancing himself from the dispute by saying 'The only stipulation for the provision of the nutrional supplements supplied after social runs is that they are home baked, and not bought from Tesco's'.This has failed to placate those members of the club who felt short changed when presented by biscuits instead of the expected moist sponge cake.Pam Withers, the master baker on this occasion, was most distressed by the fallout from this scandal. 'I spent ages in the kitchen baking and look at the thanks I get!'. Pam went on, 'And in any case they were cookies, not biscuits'. A source close to Pam, who did not want to be named, said 'The quality of the cookies was truly exceptional. Presentation was good with foil lined trays which was a marked improvement on the tupperware containers from the previous week'. The source went on to say, 'In addition, there were four varities of cookies presented, smarties, chocolate, lemon & sultana and flap jack style which was a credit to Pam's versatility in the kitchen'.It appears as though this dispute will rumble on. A motion is likely to be tabled at a forth coming committee meeting aimed at tightening up the rules surrounding the provision of nutrional supplements to clearly define what is and isn't acceptable.

The fallout from the cake fiasco grows. It would appear that the decision of a member of WAC to make biscuits instead of cakes has put people out of work. Click on this link for details:http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/merseyside/6646405.stmIt would appear that Burton's Foods could not cope with the competition from Pam's marvellous cookies!

After having a c**p day, reading these messages have really cheered me up am still laughing now!!PS I thought they were great cookies,following last weeks 'Whites Delights' the standard is incrediby high, so what better than to have me & Ginnie bringing the bar down again in a few weeks!

Having read with interest the Weston/worle news article i am slighlty concerned about possible litigation the club might face when it comes around to Ginnies turn for cakes.The article states the nutritional value and energy replacing qualities of post run refreshments , if lasts years fare ( chocolate brillo pads lacking in any nutritional values ) i fear personal injury claims will follow.

** CAKES **A great start to the cake making season from the Whites, with the chocolate brownies a favourite. Will they go on to glory at the awards night? Who knows? The bar has certainly been raised in the taste, variety and quality stakes. I can't wait to sample Victor's fairy cakes!

Re Martock 10KDear Weston RC After a successful inaugural event we are again running the Martock 10k on the 17th June, start time 11:00am. The event has been organised to raise funds for Martock VA Primary School and the Fire Service Benevolent Fund. The course is run mainly on quiet country lanes and we believe suits all abilities, ideal for first timers, those out for an enjoyable scenic run. The course offers good PB possibilities in that although not a flat course what hills it does have are gentle in the climbing and are shorter and steeper in the descents. Entries will be taken on the day and we are looking to offering a slightly ‘different’ memento to the norm, suffice to say for the main event, it will not be a medal. Click here for entry form.We look forward to welcoming you to our event. In Running, Martin MonaghanRace Director

Hi AllJust want to let you know that there are 2 early season 'warm up' open water aquathons happening in Clevedon Marine lake soon.8th and 22nd May at 7pm there will be a 450m swim/3000m run or 900m swim/6000m run. The swim will be in Marine lake and the run is a fantastic route along the promenade, along the pier and back (twice for the longer event). So if you need some early season sharpeners or if you need some open water swim experience in a well marshalled mass start environment, look no further.Entries cost 9 per race or 15 if you enter both, or you can enter on the night for 10 per race. If anyone is interested I can e-mail you more details and an entry form.Hope to see you there.Marcmarc.molloy@n-somerset.gov.uk01275 81204907776 170188

Following on from Marc's note - We did a small 'tester' event last summer and Clevedon seafront lends itself very well to a swim/run. The lake itself has been refurbished, is regularly drained and dredged. Race or sit outside the Salthouse pub and spectate !

Re: Bikeathlon Weston 20th May for Leukaemia ResearchHi all,I am a volunteer for this charity for North Somerset and Bristol You may have see the news this week about that poor Clevedon family who lost their 2 year old this week to Leukaemia. Well the money we raise is spent developing new treatments. Leukaemia is the most common form of cancer in Children you see. Please can you help, we have a bike ride challenge in Weston on the 20th of May, details follow. Anything you might do to make people aware of the event and drum up some riders from all your contacts that would be fantastic.It’s a great fun day if you get a group although some I fear stop in one pub to many!The event starts at Clarence Park East, Weston Super Mare. We have printed application forms which we can send out to any riders who want to join in the fun/pain. Riders can get application forms from us by e mailing Carolgreen59@hotmail.co.uk or telephoning a request to 0117 9621292. We charge each rider 5 entry fee, this covers a T shirt, race number, BBQ snack, Ambulance support and so on and hopefully to have a bit left over, 10 to book in to ride on the day. Funds raised through sponsorship very welcome but riders don’t have to. Sponsor forms are sent out with the packs. Fancy dress is very much encouraged and there is a prize. . There will be music in the park / some entertainment after the event. It is very much a family fun day event rather than a race but all are welcome.There is a 21 mile route a 12 mile shorter route and a half mile children’s route around the park. They can do this lap as many times as they like it is suitable for wheelchairs.The 21 and 12 mile routes start at 10 am. The children’s ride starts at 11 amSee if you think you can help in any way, please let me know if you want any more info or posters application forms etc .Regards Liz Radford

Due to the revised date conflicting with the Bristol Half I touted this as an option.

Grizzly Cancelled !'We have decided that the Grizzly will definitely be postponed due to the high risk of there being containers on Branscombe Beach around race weekend.More details will be emailed and put on the website tomorrow or Tuesday and posted to all runners later in the week but the essence is this:- The Grizzly has unfortunately been postponed until Sunday 9th September.- You can either do nothing and carry your entry over to September or return your number (which will be mailed later in the week) for a refund of your entry fee.- Your accommodation arrangements are your own responsibility but the holiday camp has told us that they will not be offering refunds.- A weekend of running activities will still take place in Seaton so still come if you can to the gathering of shipwrecked Grizzly soles!Rest assured that we do appreciate what the evcent means to the runners and the local community and that we have not taken this decision lightly.'

Latest news from endurancelife: We have recently undergone a mini transformation that includes the appointment of two new key members of staff, the introduction of some exciting new events, the development of a new web site and a refreshing new identity. What has stayed the same, is our commitment to hosting a range of unpretentious, endurance based sporting challenge events, in beautiful locations that are intended to inspire us all to get outside and do more. We are exhibiting at the Triathlon, Cycling and Running Show at Sandown Park near London this weekend, www.tcrshow.com. We will be using the show to launch our 2007 fixture list. This is a great show packed full of quality exhibitors, all aimed at the endurance sport enthusiast. If you can make it, please come by and say hi, we are on Stand E15. The Devon Coastal Marathon and Half Marathon are nearly upon us, both events have attracted record numbers, the fiendish courses are set, and we are looking forward to a memorable day, fingers crossed the weather is fine. Based on the popularity of this event, it will be followed by 2 more in the 07 Coastal Marathon & Half Marathon Series. The Devon Coast to Coast Multi-Sport Triathlon is now in it's 4th year and has become a well established and popular choice for those looking to take on a 'big' challenge. Based on the feedback we have had over the years, we are proud to announce the launch of the Coast to Coast Series. This sees the introduction of The Scottish and Welsh equivalents, Please Note that to accommodate the extra 2 dates we have moved the original Devon event forward. It is now scheduled to take place on the 19th & 20th of May. The Devon event will be open for online registrations soon, please have a look at our shiny new web site for more details. I would also like to bring to your attention two other outstanding events that might be of interest to you. The ShelterBox Challenge is a unique 2 day team challenge that involves the transportation of a loaded 'ShelterBox' across the wilds of Dartmoor in support of one of the worlds most dynamic and effective aid organisations, if you are intrigued or are unsure as to what a ShelterBox is, please visit www.shelterboxchallenge.com it is a wonderfully simple and effective concept. The Norseman Xtreme Iron Man Triathlon in Norway is considered by many to be the worlds most challenging Iron distance Tri. It is a serious challenge and requires preparation and commitment. That said, it is also very achievable by a modestly fit all rounder as I discovered last August, it is also one of the most enjoyable & satisfying events imaginable; amazing scenery, great hospitality and you finish the final marathon on a 1850m peak, having started at 0...awesome. We will be acting as dedicated support crew for a maximum of 12 lucky guys and gals (6 confirmed so far) We will take care of all your needs during the event and give you the best possible chance of finishing. If you are looking to do an 'epic' this could be the one. Have a look at www.accelerace.co.uk for some amusing tales of past Norseman trips & more information on our support service. Thank you very much for your time and we look forward to seeing you at an event soon. Regards Gary Jolliffe. FOR YOUR NEXT CHALLENGEwww.endurancelife.com

Ticket for Weston super Mare's Tough Ten - free. I applied to enter this race a couple of months ago and sadly am absolutely a million miles away from being able to run it. I am therefore happy to give it to anyone who wants it. It says in the joining instructions that tickets can be given away - but it will be up to whoever has the ticket to let them know the new runners details.

Run for Fun with the Hash House HarriersEvery Wednesday at 7:30pmHashing has been described as a drinking club with a running problem. More specifically, it’s social jogging for the unfit, slightly fit and nearly fit. Runs are typically about four miles, and follow a trail laid by one or more HARES.The trail is a puzzle to be solved by the pack. There are CHECKS every so often, where more enthusiastic runners can run further searching for the correct path, and the rest of us can have a rest. HASHING IS NOT A RACE, the aim is that, because of the CHECKS and various FALSE TRAILS, all the runners, from the fit to the walkers, finish at about the same time. Above all, we don't take it too seriously.After the run we get together for a drink, a chat and perhaps a simple meal. Runs often start and end at a pub, and it is customary for HASHERS, after the run, to take full advantage of the facilities offered. Dress is usually scruffy running gear (trainers, shorts/tracksuit, T-shirt) - don't dress up, it can be muddy. Bring spare shoes, jeans, etc. for the pub afterwards. Also, bring a torch to use on the run.If you’d like to try Hashing, just turn up at one of the runs. We welcome women, men, children (with a parent) of about ten years plus, dogs, mums, dads, grand-parents. Of any sexual orientation. Or none. From any country, politics, religion, creed, etc. Basically, we’ll take anybody! Cheers! Next run is from The Crown at Churchill on 7th February.

CLIC24 - Running - the UK's only 24 hour charity off-road endurance run. Based on our highly successful annual mountain biking event which has already raised over 110,000, in 2007 we are offering runners a true endurance challenge in return for sponsorship that will go towards our target of 20,000, 90% of which goes to CLIC Sargent, the charity that supports children with cancer and leukaemia. With your help we can do it. The team event allows up to four runners to run relay laps around the 5 mile course, to complete their laps no later than noon on Sunday 1 April, 24 hours after the start of the event. The solo event is a true endurance test for only the very fittest of runners. With the intensity of off-road and 24 hour running you should only run this event solo if you are an experienced endurance runner. CLIC24 - Running, will be held on the weekend of Saturday 31 March to Sunday 1 April 2007 based at Broadway House, Cheddar, Somerset. The event site will open at 6pm on the Friday evening for early arrivals and the run starts at noon on Saturday with last laps completed no later than noon on the Sunday. Event Director Neil Wilkins said, 'CLIC24 Running is a unique event, in a unique location with a unique atmosphere. It is designed to be an enjoyable weekend of running for everyone from the local club runner to the experienced endurance athlete at the same time as raising important sponsorship for a very worthy cause.'
