Hi Mike, as mentioned below a few of us will be meeting at 8.15am in the car park opposite the Walnut Tree Pub at the end of Winterstoke Road, the route is out and back so we tend to people doing a variety of distances as you can turn back at any point. Pace usually averages out around 9mm.
Hi Mike, Sunday groups are an informal affair, normally arranged during mid-week training. I know of 2 groups tomorrow doing 18 miles from BP garage on new Bristol Rd, start time of 7:45 & 8am, both will be doing 7:20 per mile or quicker. I believe another group is still going from the Walnut Tree (near the Oldmixon), not sure of meeting time, I think it is around 8am, but pace is usually around 9 minutes per mile. Given the number of people doing spring marathons I have little doubt that there will be a number of other groups out as well.
What groups go out on a Sunday? Just the higher groups or is there something for all?
Back from the threshold session. Painful as usual and my reasons for doing it are somewhat different to most of you there! To get out of the breakfast chores and to get the runners high later.....It has arrived! Thank you Weston AC Coach Mt Tottle.

Congratulations to all the runners who competed in our two races last night. Perfect running conditions led to some impressive personal best times. Not so great for our marshals who had to brave those very cold temperatures and the chilly easterly wind. Thanks to them all for getting our 2017 races off to a great start.

Given the Equality Act's reference to Positive Discrimination are we allowed to give additional Championship points to all with the notable exception of those pesky kids?

Bristol 10k: Its that time of year again! As a club we can benefit from a 20% discount on the entry fee to the Bristol 10k (this will also apply to the Bristol Half Marathon later in the year) if we have over 20 people who wish to enter via the group discount and who are EA affiliated. I'm guessing that we will have, but if you could indicate, either here or by email to Julia Withers, then we can get an idea! The entry fee after the discount will be £23.20 for the 10k.

Kira, 10 x 2mins with as long as it takes to get back down to start as recovery. Usually around 3 mins.
This saturdays session - Are the hill reps 'long' as in the 40 min long session you do or just long hills with recovery at bottom each time ?
Also ran on beach on Sunday and sand compact and lovely to run on. Any chance of some 400's on the beach one Sat morning when tide is right? cheers
Bit late but Dec handicap results and tonights start times are now on the website

Please see note from Ian about new meeting and start point for the Handicap on Tuesday.
Following last months straw poll of the club's runners the new 5k Handicap course from this coming Tuesday will be as follows.
The start is adjacent to the Tropicana Bay Cafe entrance and runs north 1.5k to the Knightstone slipway (lamppost 6), before turning 180 degrees back to the start point. The second 1.0k lap runs northwards again to the Winter Gardens before the last leg back to the Tropicana. This new three-turn winter course replicates the one run in the spring/summer, but with more space.
Parking near the start should be easier, if required.
A Happy New Year to everyone. See you on Tuesday evening.
Hi Sara W, it is that time of year again when I need you to do your thing so that I may access the diary on the news page to do the weekly update. Hope the family had a lovely Christmas, many thanks JT.
Thanks to everybody who came out today to help in any way whatsoever to put on the race and make it such a success again despite the rain. Your help as always is much appreciated and has again helped to raise a large amount of money for Barton Camp.
Annette particularly wishes to thank Kath H, Debbie B, Sian R and Bella S for all their help with the kitchen duties today. Also, a big thank you to all those who baked for the event - they were all well received and helped to raise £212.00.
Thanks to all the marshals for turning out today
Love the friendly abuse don't no if it makes me run faster but dose make me smile
