Can I congratulate the great Jim White on his performance last night & say what a privelege it was to run/stagger round with him. I could write a book, but to summarise;
Pre race preparation; 7 hours in a pub after a friends funeral.
Attire; Black suit, jacket only pinned together by race number. Trousers..see below.
Race distance 5 miles. Distance staggered by Jim, at least 6 miles.
Coins rattling in Jims pocket; 100(conservative estimate)
Times fell over sea wall; None...now we know why the council put those horrible railings up!
Front runners abused; 10+
Vomiting incidents; 2(but not until 3 and a half miles)
Fellow runners coming the other way bumped into; Incredibly NONE! all credit to anyone who had to take evasive action.
Brian Rix style trousers falling down escapsdes; 3
Falling flat on face; Hard to believe but NONE Think 1970's toy favourites the Weebles(they wobble but they wont fall down)
Point realised he probably wasnt going to win; About 4 miles
Reply to the advice from Jim Wooton to stop at half way; Unprintable on a family message board.
Hard earned championship points; 7
JIM WHITE WESTON AC LEGEND!

Congratulations and well done to the 200 runners who ignored the weather forecast and completed the 5 mile prom run last night. Conditions were wet but much better than we had expected and some PB's were achieved! Results will appear here soon.

Also a special thanks everyone who helped especially to all the marshals who were cold and very wet by the end of the evening. A number of runners asked me to pass on their thanks to you all.

Have a lovely Christmas and we look forward to seeing you all next year.

P.S. Well done to Liz 3rd Lady and a PB!!!

Cracker lost property
Hello runners and helpers, not only do I have a huge collection of santa hats, but also some fairly useful stuff that I would like to return to their owners, especially runners 1114 and 1115 who thoughtfully left their numbers pinned onto their soggy, sweaty kit. (Don't worry it has been laundered). Please contact me if you want your things back! If I don't hear by new year anything useful will go to a charity shop.

A MASSIVE thank you to everyone at the club (and in some cases, relatives & friends thereof) for their terrific support to yet another successful Cracker. I guess we were very fortunate given the weather later this afternoon in completing the event in the dry. I am aware of the effort put in by so many different people, but particularly members of the Cracker sub-committee. I know other members of the club would wish me to commend them for their vital contribution. On a personal level, I would particularly like to thank Malcolm Gammon for all that he does to reduce my workload as Race Director, but then again I guess we'd expect nothing less!

As ususal, the event passed off without any real difficulties although those of you who were at the presentation of awards will be aware of some difficulties with the results.

An absolutely fantastic day - thanks again!

Please could you just ahve a quick look and check where you are supposed to be and at what time. Dont forget you may have more than one job tomorrow.

Can I say a massive thank you to everyone who has come forward as a volunteer, it certainly has made my life easier not having to chase around.

Here's hoping we have an excellent day.....and if your job is outside, look at the weather forecast, it looks like you are going to need waterproofs and wellies!

Cheers Jamie & Bryan, nice to be mentioned with such esteemed club members as Tony. Can I just say thanks to all who have helped me this year, especially Malcolm for encouraging goal setting & half/full marathon training plans, Jamie for tutoring me in the dark art of pacing, Victor & the Massive for Mendip training and recent pacing at Street + the Prom:-O)Mr Noble for being an excellent nemisis/new club champ. Oh & anyone else who knows me. You are all fab.

Posted : 08:59
Jamie, I think that honour may go to Tony Sperrin back in 2002? Not 100% and the race year was different in those days and as I understand it people used to run in plimsoles and rubbed sticks together to make fire.

Nevertheless, a magificent effort from our greyhound loving "Barry Hotlegs" elect.

We are running, more of an amble really, the 10k route of "The Cracker" at 0930 on Saturday 10 December. In keeping with the Cracker, fancy dress is the order of the day with a prize for the most impressive ( and it takes something to impress me ).

This is followed by a free breakfast at the Nook and Harbour at 11:30ish. So I do need to know if you are coming or not so I can order the right number of sausages ( veggie if you prefer), cups of tea, etc.

Don't forget to bring something to change into and a towel/wet-wipe to freshen up after the run.

Please let me know by email or text.

Thanks

Simon has also mentioned that the party plans have changed, so I am free to do another job to help fill spaces!!! Let me know!!

Cheryl, your email and Si Walsh's email specifically said you wanted something before the race only as you have a children's birthday party to attend. Chips will be going out between 9 and 11. Please let me know if your plans have now changed and then I can add another task. Thank you.

Hi Lesley, Just responding to the volunteer list for the cracker. I'm down to give out chips, which is absolutely fine, but just wanted to offer to do one of the other jobs which you need filling as I'm only down for one... either something during the race (marshalling or one of the "special tasks") or after such as giving out t-shirts. Let me know if I can help.

*****Volunteer List*****

I have just sent the first draft of the Volunteer List to Bryan to post on the welcome page. It will appear over the next couple of days.

Please could you check the list thoroughly as it is likely that your name may appear more than once. The list is divided into 3 columns: Before, During and After the race.

If your name does not appear and you are available, please could you let me know 07540 823017. All the little question marks are positions to be filled. I intend to hit the phone next week if they do not fill before.

I would like to thank everyone who has come forward so far, you have certainly made this task a lot easier for me.

Just a quick reminder for all those who have volunteered to help with the Cracker Stuffing Party. It is this Friday at 6pm at Weston Hospicecare in Uphill (please shout if you need directions).

A full list of roles for the Cracker race day will be issued shortly. We still have quite a few spaces to fill.
If you havent volunteered yet, dont be shy, last year we had 130 volunteers and everyone had a role on the day. So far we have about 70, so lots of roles to fill. Please phone me, txt or email 07540 823017.

As I am long term injured, I am not down at the club as often so I am relying on technology! Although I am coming to Hutton Moor on Thursday before training to be available if anybody wants to see me.

Thank you very much. Lesley x

It's that time of year again! The Cracker is on Sunday 11th December, we will have 2000+ runners to look after.
For those new to Weston AC, you need to be aware that no Weston AC runners enter the Cracker as we need as many helpers on the day as possible.
This year as in previous years we have jobs in the chip shop (handing out chips to runners), strippers (stripping off chips at the end of the race) bag ladies and men (handling all baggage left in the bag store), welcomers (pointing out where peple need to go), marshals for the whole route,sweepers, spot prize handlers, security, water station manners, course erectors and dismantlers ........
The list goes on, you can see how many people are needed. Last year we had about 130 helpers on the day.
This year we are also looking for 9 'Special People' for a special task!!!
If you are unable to help on the day, but are available to help at the stuffing party (Preparing the envelopes to go out to runners) then you would be be extremely welcome (11/11/11 6pm).
The Cracker is a massive day for the club and enormously rewarding for everyone taking part.
Please contact me to let me know if you are available and your preference (if any) for your task. I would also be grateful if you can tell me if you are unavailable, so that I can avoid hounding you!!
So please email, text, or phone me with your burning request whether it be Head Stripper, Drinker, Chipper or 'Special Person'or other. Lesley 07540 823017

A big thank you to all the marshals and helpers involved in today's Mendip Muddle. Thanks to your help in staging this race we were able to donate 1500 to the RNLI, plus another 180 has been raised by donations via the Virgin Money Giving site by the runners themselves. We had a record entry and a record number of finishers. Well done all!

Thanks John H, Tobias's best marathon time now amended in championship points. Your London time was just fractionally faster than Jersey. Did you enjoy the undulations in Jersey? when I did it a few years ago it I had torrential rain throughout the race.

Whilst I would love nothing more than to sit with Victor for 80 minutes on Saturday morning and listen to bad jokes about the French (and probably the Welsh et al), I do feel that if anyone is interested I should really be running my popular Hill repeats session at Uphill. Is anyone interested? We could make it earlier if so required?

September's Prom Run Results still has timing errors due to a running number not having been officially recorded on the finishing sheets.
Once I can gather enough correct and incorrect times from around the relvant positions it will narrow down the time slot where this error may have occurred.

Therefore I could do with accurate times for Ruth White, Nicola Fulstow, Kevin Hudson, Gareth Weaver and Cheryl Valentine. Any help here would be appreciated, otherwise it may not be possible to correct the official results for everyone.

So, if you can spare just a few hours on this day, the club would appreciate your help. If you can help please email Bryan and Tony using the link below.

Thanks for your messages. I've booke in with a physio at "The Physio Clinic" which is just behind Rolls Royce in Patchway, close to where I work. I'll let you know if it's any good. I'm going tomorrow, so probably won't be able to make training after all. Hope to see you all again soon. Phil ;o)

It's actually quite difficult to accurately measure an individuals LT as it can vary according to age and level of fitness. hand held Lactate testers are now available for a couple of hundred quid and involve a small finger prick.

lactate threshold is defined as the point when lactic acid starts to accumulate in your blood. The theory is that training at or around this point can actually shift the threshold higher so you delay the onset of pain or you get used to running at this level - simples !

We really enjoyed the Sri Chinmoy Self-Trancendence race series in Bristol this summer. I'd recommend them to anyone who fancies running races under 5k. Also some of the friendliest races we've been to, and the 3x1 mile relay was great fun.

To everyone who was in Charmouth this weekend,

I would like to take a moment to apologise to all of those who were in Charmouth this weekend for Saturday evening. I feel really awful about what happened because it was a bit of fun which went wrong. At no point was it my or Debs intention to upset people or cause a disagreement and it was wrong of us to throw water balloons near the cakes. We were having a bit of fun to get Kevin wet for hiding his birthday from us on Friday. We obviously werent aiming for the cakes but in hindsight Kevin was stood far too close to the cake table for the water not to make the cakes wet and we simply didnt think. Im especially sorry to the children who unfortunately had to witness such a scene and consequently were also upset and frightened, and also to Chloe and Ellie who spent a huge amount of time and effort making the cakes. I cant apologise enough and feel dreadful. There was a lot of upset caused and Im just sorry that it happened and that it affected everyone. I just wish that firstly it had never happened, that everyone was still able to enjoy their weekend and thirdly, that Lesley and I are able to resolve this and move on as team members.

Liz Wiggins

Posted : 13:40
Jamie,
I have just bought the 110 - 5 days ago and used it every day since. Perfect for my needs. Quick to start - as soon as I walk out the door takes about 10 secs.
Basic but sufficient.

Dave B

Posted : 13:24

109 messages | 25 events entered.
Jamie,
the 110 uses a newer GPS chipset (SiRFstar IV) than the 205 (SiRFstar III) which is supposed to give quicker satellite fix times and lower power consumption - the hot start feature should reduce the amount of time waiting for the watch to find satellites when you turn it on.

Battery life is shorter on the 110 (8hrs) than the 205 (10hrs), most of the 205 is battery (i've taken mine apart) the lower power chipset allows a smaller battery and hence a smaller watch overall.

The most important difference is the functions tho, the 205 offers things like custom workouts, virtual partner, auto lap / pause, interval training, pace alerts...etc - the 205 is more featured...and has a bigger screen and thus can show more data (and supports multiple pages of data too)

The 110 is a more basic, simple and smaller unit, the 205 is bigger, offers more functions but is a bit clunky.

The GPS startup is probably not the biggest concern as it typically takes my 305 < 1 min to start up...but the functions available on the run make this worthwile in my humble opinion.

Bryan Morley

Posted : 09:47
Jamie, Forerunner 205's are now going for just over 70 so are a bit cheaper that the 110. However the 205 is older technology and if anything like the 305 takes ages to get a satellite fix. Your best bet is to go on the Garmin website garmin.com and compare the technical specs.

Also, does anyone want a Charmouth Challenge race entry? I don't think I will be running following last weekends efforts. I will still be going camping though and of course tripping up Victor somewhere on the route.

Thank you to those who have contacted me regarding Saturday sessions. Matt W. kindly has given me the results from the survey. Due to the fact that only one preference was available, we have had to go with the first past the post system. Meaning that 9.00am has duely been elected as the start time. If however there are a few who would prefer an 8am start, I could look at running two sessions to accomodate everyone. Details of all the sessions with be on the website the Thursday before and announced on Tuesday at H.M.
Again I would like to stress that these sessions are open to all members of the club. See you soon.

Attention all club members
SATURDAY MORNING SESSIONS

I will be running the first session this Saturday if anyone is interested. They will be either a track, hill or lactate threshold based session and hopefully will compliment other club training. I am afraid that I was unable to access the results from the survey, so if interested could you please either leave a message on the board or e-mail me. Let me know prefered start time as well. Many thanks. jandctottle@btinternet.com

p.s. Last year we took 1hr 43 from the carpark to the rugby club. This year's time on my watch was 1hr 29.
The history bit follows: Line opened in 1989 and closed by Beeching in 1965. It was part of the Great Western Raiway and carried not only strawberries but also stone and dairy produce from Cheddar. Between Congresbury and Yatton we ran past Biddle Street SSSI - ditches, wildflower meadows, dragonflies, reed and sedge warblers. In 1983 volunteers from Cheddar Valley Walk Society began work to change the old track into a walking and cycle route and an extension is proposed.

Well done everyone for braving the Strawberry Line on such a wet day. Special mention should be made of those who ran to Axbridge from Hutton or somewhere else far away and to those who forded the river at Congresbury (these are not mutually exclusive groups - some people did both!).
Well done and thanks too to the cooks and bottlewashers who looked after us so well at the Rugby club. We had a huge feast which I am not sure eight miles was enough to run off.

**** STRAWBERRY LINE FINAL UPDATE ****

Just a reminder for runners to meet at Yatton Rugby Club at 10:30 prompt.

I am still needing cars to take runners to Axbridge from Yatton so all assistance is much appreciated.

Those travelling/running separately should aim for Axbridge car park at 11:00.

The forecast is not brill, but I am sure Liz Green, the run leader, will make it interesting for us.

We should be back to meet families and a warm shower about 12:30 - 13:00, when you can change into your loud shirt!

See you there

Kevin mentioned that people have met at Hutton Moor rather than the Walnut Tree due to the length of time cars would need to be left there. Therefore, if I understand this correctly, we meet up at 9.15am at Hutton Moor. Perhaps Kevin could confirm?

Hi Liz, not sure about exact time...I don't actually know how far it is from the Walnut Tree pub to the Axbridge car park. It seemed like a good idea at the time. I still chuckle when I remember Mr Haynes jumping into the River Yeo in Congresbury and then needing rescuing after cramping up following a similar run. I think meeting at 9.15am should be ok....I'm guessing it's not going to me more that 10 miles to Axbridge. Ok with you?

In keeping with Dave's quote "Who dares, wins!" I will be running in army combats and carrying a small discreet backpack in promotion of this years club mountain challenge; 'The Welsh 3000' which will be attempted by no less than 17 club members on 17th June.

Just incase you can't see me in my camouflage, I will also be carrying a 2 meter flag with the club logo on it!!

See you at the party :-)

A collection box for Prostate Cancer will be available at Thursdays Prom Run for all those taking part in wearing something different to lycra shorts to cover their bits .. and for any forfeits for those who choose not to.

Thanks to the Massive for a grand tour round the mendips yesterday. Nice to get up on a lovely sunday morning for a couple of hours of fresh air, mud, rocks and the odd bit of abuse from Victor......suppose it would have been worse if City lost the cup!

I brought these off ebay knowing GORE clothing can be small but these are just too long in the leg. Any ladies in the club with long legs these are new - i got them for 20 so would like this amt for them. still have labels on (retail price 42.00).
ok so they are ladies but what is the difference between ladies and mens tights? - Men look like ladies when they train in tights anyway don't they??

The BIG SWIM takes place on 7th August 2011 in aid of the Weston RNLI, anyone up for a REAL challenge please let me know.

You need to be able to swim in the sea for about 1 hour, this can be a tough event, certainly has been 3 times out of the 4 times I have competed.

What I need is confirmation that you are 100% on for this, there are only 8 places for safety reasons and I need to be clear on numbers and you are committed to raise a minimum of 250, last year 8 of us raised nearly 5K

The event is planned for 7th August
Start race at 11:00
Band and Beer at the cabin in afternoon
Headache Monday...

Obviously this is all based on weather and conditions...

So all those prom running in Speedo's this month, why not put them to proper use again in August this year...

We are looking for volunteers to help with next weeks Prom run. There are 5 of our regular team missing and we are expecting it to be busy due to the Bike Night and the fact it is May.

If you are not planning to run, we would be really grateful for your help.
Please could you let me know, so that I can release some volunteers who would like to run back into the race.

You will also get chance to see men in speedos and 'the' yellow shorts too!! (Not sure if that is a selling point?)

Best get in quick if you're looking to enter Burnham, Race fills quickly. Taunton is full already. My personal favourite is Langport. Heated open air pool, quiet and fast roads, on/off road run.

Yep, totally agree - I can't understand why Triathlon entry fees have become so expensive. I believe the problem is it's become very much a middle class sport and people are prepared to pay the over inflated kit / bike prices and race entries. That said, there are still a few well regarded low cost events around though.

Weston AC are still listed as a British Triathlon affiliated club. This allows you to purchase British Triathlon membership for 40 pound instead of 51 pound. Joining British Triathlon gets you entry discount at certain ( but not all ) events, a magazine and personal accident insurance whilst training and racing.

Hi, I am one of two swimming instructors who run 'Swim Smarter', putting on short courses to improve front crawl technique. On our last course we had a number of runners who wanted to learn or improve their front crawl to compete in triathlon.

We teach an innovative technique focussing on balance and rotation. The 8 week course develops skills which facilitate easy breathing, streamlining and efficient arm and leg action.

I wondered if any of your members would be interested in either of our next courses starting in May (excluding half term week), on Mondays 10.15-11.15am from 9th May at Sidcot School, or Fridays 8-9pm from 13th May at Churchill Sports Centre.

Each course has 2 qualified instructors, limited numbers, 96 includes tuition and pool admission.

If you, or any of your members would like more information I can email more details or send you a flyer. You can contact me on the above email, info@swimsmarter.co.uk or call me on 01934 842772.

Happy Easter.

CALLING ALL BAKERS!

Summer's here, and that means Social Runs are back. These popular Thursday night sessions are synonymous with a cake or three, so I'm looking for a few more volunteers to wave their wooden spoons.

And don't forget, there's a Baking Trophy up for grabs. Next year, it could be you skipping through the roar of the crowd at the Beachlands Hotel to collect your prize! Just imagine the feeling!

Ideally there'll be several people baking on a given date, so even if there's already a name down it's still up for grabs. Here's the dates:

Thu 26 May - 1st Summer Social (Andy Dev)
Thu 2 Jun - 2nd Summer Social (Gareth H)
Sun 12 Jun - Strawberry Line Run & BBQ (Josh and Rachael)
Thu 16 Jun - 3rd Summer Social
Sat 2 Jul - Charmouth Camping Weekend
Thu 14 Jul - 4th Summer Social (Cheryl)
Thu 18 Aug - 5th Summer Social

So dust off your pinny, and as Greg and John would say, 'Let's Cook!'

Contact details:

Hi Tobias. Yes, of course. Your result is now listed. Sorry, you were down as unaffliated in the official results and when looking for finishers of club races I search by club name i.e. Weston AC. Congratulations in completing the race.....you must have been sweltering in that outfit.

yes Mat you are right it is not being officially recognised as a WR - too much downhill and wind assisted!

Kira, to my understanding Boston's course does not meet the rules for offically getting a world record - The start and finish has to be within 50% if the race distance by line-of-sight.

Not that I have researched into this in looking for the perfect course for getting my Marathon World Record on :)

To the guy from Sheffield.

I am always off injured for one reason or another, and I am just coming back from four months off with a broken toe. So I am always at the back trying to get fit (and slim) again.
I always feel very nervous coming back to the club after time out. And one thing I've noticed about the WAC lot is that there are some true gems amoungst them who will always give you a smile and welcome you back. Then there are others who you thought were friends who will completely blank you.
One thing to be sure of is that people are people. Everyone wants to be accepted. So keep on coming and get your face known.

In reponse to the message left below... I find it sad that someone has joined the club and felt that way... I too was scared about joining the club in fear that I wasn't good enough and wouldn't be able to keep up... but from the very first run that I was encouraged to do with the club, so many people introduced themselves to me and began chatting to me as I puffed my way around. I want to say thank you to the club members for making me feel so welcome and feel part of the team. There's great spirit, comradery and so much support from everyone and would encourage others to give us a go!!

I tend to agree partly with the Sheffield man. Although we are a very friendly and social bunch of runners would any of us be prepared to scarifice one of our trianing nights to support others who are just coming into the sport? Having been a WRN leader in the past i know how daunting it is for a first time lady runner to go to a 'club' - Some of the lady runners run at 10-12 minute mile pace so Geraldine, to them and the majority of the population actually you ARE a very fast and competive runner believe me!!

OMG! I am a Sheffield girl!! I must add, that wasn't me.

I have to say I found joining the club initially very daunting. At the club I ran at in Sheffield, many years ago, we were not allowed to race in a club vest if we didnt attend training regularly, because it didnt reflect well on the coaches! Maybe it's a Northern thing?

Anyway, joining the club is the best thing I could've done, other runners are freindly and encouraging, especially if they can see you are making an effort and also if, as a new member you are happy to be sociable.
There is always someone you can buddy up with who is at your pace and if you need help in finding those runners and when they run, just shout,some of us know most people and can certainly lead you in the right direction?

Just to add, at WAC it helps if you can bake and take the friendly banter that is thrown around! ;)

Gerry H [WAC]

Well im 'not good' and find most people still talk to me!!

In all walks of life not just clubs you have people who are friendly and others not so, with 160 members to date i would like to think that we have enough 'personalities' to accomodate all.

I think the saying goes 'you should not tarr everyone with the same brush'

Posted : 14:18
Hey this maybe our opportunity to encourage all thsose women to join WAC with welcome arms! But lets not do this:

When I was 19 I ran the Sheffield Marathon. So I can officially tell you 26 miles is a bloody long way. That didnt bother me as much as finding out how hilly Sheffield is. Very, in case youre wondering. Very, very hilly. Really. Go and have a look. Youll see.

Before running up and down the hills of Sheffield for 26 miles I had spent 6 years running in cross-country teams. I didnt win races, but I was pretty good.

I tell you this so youll understand that when I was terrified about joining an athletics club it wasnt because I cant run.

So why was I terrified?

Well, I was just recovering from 6 months off running with an ankle injury (football is dangerous) and I thought theyd probably all be rude to a newcomer, especially if I was slower than them.

I joined anyway. You might be expecting that I was pleasantly surprised at how friendly they all were. This was not the case. I was spot on. When you join a sports club people are generally rude to beginners who arent any good.

An example that happens all too often.

Re:Women's Running Network

Last night at Wyvern, the Weston group were told that the WRN have gone into liquidation. It is still not known what will happen in the future with the WRN nationally and locally.

The Weston group will still continue to meet at Wyvern on Monday evening, Ashcombe Park on Wednesday evenng & Hutton Moor on a Saturday morning. Any women interested in improving their fitness through running & walking will still be very welcome to join these sessions.

Despite being mystified by the announcement, the ladies were very keen to continue running and walking as a group in WSM & will no doubt continue to support WAC at the Prom Runs & other local events.

Despite the prospect of rather inclement weather this evening, I shall be at the Trop as usual for warm up and drills.

As some of you may already know the coaching team has been looking at the possibilities of starting some Saturday morning track training sessions through the summer. They are intended to complement other club sessions and also target more specific training to meet individual needs. In order to gauge the popularity of such sessions, it would be helpful if members could feedback on particpation, time of the morning and frequency (weekly, fortnightly etc.) You can do this by either posting a message or e-mailing me at jandctottle@btinternet.com.

WAC Bowling Night, 6th may
I will be at Hutton Moor tonight to collect names and money for the above. I'd be grateful if you could pay the full amount (10) in cash asap. I need to pay the deposit by mid-April, so time is a little short.

I for one will be sorry to see Chairman Rob step down. His enthusiasm, charm, wit, good looks ...... No seriously, the club has developed and changed a lot during his membership / leadership and he/we should be proud of his achievements. If only he could put together a marathon PB to match his pace when training - I'm convinced it's still in there somewhere !

Maybe the committee could consider offering honorary lifetime membership in recognition of his services to the club - if not for his running !

I'm sure Victor will agree ?

Well done and thanks to the 231 runners who came and ran in last nights prom race. What a night with a fantastic finishing time of 24.30, a time which we have not seen for many years and a privilege again to have another international athlete compete in the race.

WAC Bowling Night, AMF Bowling, Weston, Fri 6th May, 6.45pm for 7pm start.

As promised, more details.

The club committe has kindly agreed to subsidise this event again, keeping the cost to 10 per head. This buys you two games, two drinks and nibbles. As last year, partners are warmly invited. And there's a trophy to be won (if Neale can find it) - one of the few Josh and Disco have yet to win, from what I can gather.

If you are planning to attend, please could I have your name and a 5 deposit per person no later than Sunday 10th April so that I can secure our booking. You can either e-mail me in the first instance, give me a call on 830109, or add your name to the event listing for this in the events calendar. I'll be at Hutton Moor every Tuesday night between now and 10/04 and at the Prom tonight.

IT'S OVER
(or Tears, Tantrums, and Trainers)

After much soul-searching, it's sadly time to quit
There's nothing left to give in this tired old wit
It's been a thirty-year journey running this race
The cumulative effort etched into lines on my face

Too little recognised to be termed a 'career'
Just a brief shared intensity, then trophies and beer
Six hundred races, somehow twenty-eight of them won
It was around competitions that we had most of the fun

Training groups' banter I'm sure I will miss
How else to achieve such 'on the edge' bliss?
It's an addictive business, managing euphoria and pain
For the determined and disciplined, but not for the vain

The transition seemed so logical, from jogger to winner
The training getting harder, and the body getting thinner
The rest of life scheduled round the compulsion to run
Big-time national race ambitions crowded out the fun

Devil-may-care life switched to healthy routines
Beer and kebabs switched to lean meat and greens
Momentum and focus on big championship races
Compete to the death, before finish-line embraces

Twice-a-day training, never missed despite work
Not allowed shower would be too much a perk
But such small adversities all spurred on the zest
The self-imposed mission to win a British vest

Sure enough mid-nineties the running dreams came true
But be careful what you wish for, a high price was due
Chronic viral illnesses and fatigue off the scale
All that work to get me there had set me up to fail

But it's all been worth it, what else gives us this chance?
To be up against greats, and crash their post-race dance
Running's ultimate truth, you get out what you put in
If only everything in life was such a simple win-win

Amazingly, you all seemed to enjoy it dispite my error of judgement that initially lead us in the wrong direction, and then the terrible visability that hampered our efforts of escaping the Mendips!

Please don't anyone be put off future night runs - we'll make sure the routes are fool-proof.
There will be one more night run whilst the evenings are still dark in a few weeks time, in WSM lead by Neal - so you'll definately be safe there!

Please note that I have updated the list of club championship races (pay attention Josh, Adrian N and Dave B). There are one or two left to add whose dates have not been announced yet so this list is not exhaustive. Please also note that the Taunton Half is a grand prix race (there's a bug which means I cannot make it indicate as such on the Club Championship page). Also, a 10 mile grand prix race has yet to be selected. Anyway, hope this is of use and allows you to plan you races for the next few months.

Rob

Posted : 18:19
Lights, Camera, action.... recieved this e mail and thought it may be of interest to some. He is looking for 10-15 runners as a minimum but can work with more.

Dear Rob

I am a filmmaker (and ex-runner) and am hoping to make a short film called 'Runner' during the summer months of this year. The film, about 12 minutes long, is the story of a 'run' by a runner called Andy. The project is subject to a successful Arts Council funding bid.

Part of the film is planned to be shot on Brean beach using a tethered hot air balloon for bird's eye perspectives, working with a choreographer to direct runners. The event would take place early in the morning with a session the previous day to direct the runners. I hope this will all take place over a weekend in July.
What we need, you have probably guessed, is runners! Hence this e mail to you!

There's no money in it for anyone, myself included, but the film will be distributed to film festivals nationally and internationally and everyone would be credited. I would also like the film to be distributed to running clubs - screening arranged if asked for. I would hope that this will be a unique and fun experience for everyone.

The film will include running footage from the 1912 Olympics and draw on some of the shooting style from the running sequences in the 1962 film The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner.

Me? I'm an academic and filmmaker working at Bath Spa University. There's a lecturer here called Nick Sargent who is a runner and recommended I contact you.
My films are shown quite widely here and overseas and I already have interest in Runner for the Autumn/Spring2012.

If this sounds like something that could happen through the WAC then I'd be happy to come and talk to club members, perhaps show some film if appropriate.

Best wishes

Chris

Thanks to all (especially Dave) for another great awards night.

We really wanted to thank everyone who was kind enough to donate money towards our Marathon charities yesterday. This was an unexpected, but thoughtful request on our behalf.

As a club, you raised 115 which we have split 50/50 (half to Alzheimer's, half to Save the Rhino). Given the total, a large majority of members must have contributed something, for which we are very grateful.

Anyone who'll be at the Tough 10, we'll see you there.

Menus are in and money collected, its all down to you getting there on the night.

Please feel free to get down to Beachlands from 7 pm to enjoy a pre-dinner drink and chat, ready to enjoy an evening of good food and presentations.

A seating plan has been made, with friendships in mind, to make your night easier and to help the restaurant serve nearly 100 guests all together.

For those of you with short memories, like me, your menu choice will be available on the table, so no worries there. And those who do remember, there will be some wine provided to help you soon forget! (3 bottles per table).

The meal will start at 7:30 pm, with presentations starting during coffee at the end of the meal.

This will be followed by a raffle and hopefully an opportunity to socialise before the end of a good night.


Dress code.... always wear something as it is cold at this time of year

Smart casual is the order of the evening, and if you want to go for best frock, or shirt and tie then that is ok too, the night is what you make it.

Any concerns ask me now, because I will be too busy enjoying myself on the night

A Belgian runner has set a new world record by completing 365 marathon races in a year.

Stefaan Engels, dubbed "Marathon Man", began his challenge in Belgium a year ago and has since run a marathon every day across seven countries.

He crossed the finish line in the Spanish city of Barcelona after running 15,000km (9,569 miles) in a year.

and we thought Mr Muddle was mad!

On the weekend of 3rd & 4th September this year I am intending to walk the "Snowdon Horseshoe" which is rated as the best mountain ridge walk in the UK. Having discussed this with a number of members it may well be that some of you are interested in joining me. If you want to know more about this amazing walk then simply Google "Snowdon Horseshoe" and you will find many descriptions and photos.

Anyone interested please speak to me for more details. Best location for accommodation of all types is Bewtws y Coed where you can catch the Sherpa bus to the start of the walk. PS Grace is catching the train to meet up at the summit so partners can do this as an easy alternative.

To the twinkling stars of the Mendips.... watching the row of headtorches, like little twinkly stars, heading over the mendips last night was an absolute joy... with freezing temperatures, lots of mud (cow poo, sheep poo and possibly other poo... belonging to whom... I dare to imagine:) and even a flake or two of snow (yes it was snow, stuart!!) just made it even more magical. I enjoyed every minute.. well most of them. I'm sure there was a point when I said "I just wanna go home now!" It was great. The night runs are like a big adventure and brings out the childhood memories of the "famous five" in me and as Kevin says, makes you run faster up hills so you don't get left behind... alone on the mendips!! Thanks so much for organising it guys and... I'm really looking forward to the next one!

Bryan, South Downs you say? That's only 35 miles a day - I'm afraid I laugh in the face of 35 miles a day - it's not even worth getting out of bed for!

I'm joking of course, that's a massive challenge indeed, especially on that terrain. I would be up for it but I'm trying not to book anything else in now before the Ironman, I need to try out some of this swimming and cycling lark.

I can definitely stop there - I've decided this ultra lark is quite hard work actually!
There's the Jurassic Coast 3 marathons in 3 days and then the Ironman in July but after that I'm definitely done - no more silliness

Well done for Anglesey - reading up it sounds like a tough one!

Well done Mr Bostock. Where can I find the results of your epic challenge? FYI, the results you mention for the Gloucester Marathon in the club championship include results for ANY marathon done in 2011, not just Gloucester. Given I was Billy No Mates in Anglesey I thought I would give you and the Gloucester boys the glory.

So Mr Bostock, what's next? You can't stop there!?

News of former club champ and nemesis Shaun Callaghan. Over the weekend he competed in Paris and Edingburgh (european + scottish championships) indoor rowing 2,000m lightweight 40-49 category. Winning in scotland to add that to his Welsh and Irish crowns. Unfortunately lost to a pesky german in europeans .

BATH BEAT - 9 April 2011

If you fancy a nice day out, you can't go wrong with the Bath Beat. OK, it's not actually a race, (although runners are welcome) but why not break the habit of a lifetime & go for a walk. There's a choice of 4 distances ranging from 12.5 to 26.5 miles, and each route is punctuated with food laden checkpoints & cheerful marshals.

So, get signed up, pack a waterproof & sunglasses into a daysack, then fill the rest of the bag with Marks & Spencer's pre-mixed Pimms/gin & tonic. I couldn't run it if I tried!

Google 'Bath Beat' if you would like an entry form, & check out the Runner's World event reviews.

There were some regular names missing last night and only 7 hardy soles braved the wind, rain and impact on their performance in tonight's 5k training competition (sorry meant to say training session!).
Watch out for some new runners who have signed up since last months 5k and are seriously quick.

Dear Mendip Massive
Just saw the note below from the Lambrini Kid about a meet on Monday morning at 8.30am? Is this meet still on? I would very much like to apply for membership to your elite and select band of runners but understand I will have to undergo a trial period and possible initiation tests before being accepted.

Jim, just wanted to say thanks for an excellent race today. On a more serious note, I would like to formally & publicly apologise for my ill judged feedback relating to the provision of tea at last years race, and I hang my head in shame. I believe that it is the responsibility of every runner to ensure that they are familiar with the refreshment facilities prior to posting feedback, and this is a something which I now strive to achieve at every race I attend. This has, unfortunately, increased my average spend at the cake/bun/tea hatch at every race so far, but it is worth the financial outlay, as I no longer feel the need to post whingy catering related feedback. Now that's what I call a New Year's resolution!

Thank you.

Sincere thanks to everybody that helped put on the Hangover today. It makes it so much easier to have so many people prepared to just get on with whatever needs to be done.
Initial figures show that we should be able to make a similar donation to the charity as last year.
Thanks
Jim
