Bristol Half Marathon: If you would like to join the club group entry and have EA affiliation. Please contact Julia Withers with a view to paying the discounted entry fee of £32 by Friday 24th August. After that date you are likely to still be able to enter on line, but you won't be able to benefit from the group discount.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Meeting point - Black Rock car park Cheddar Gorge
Meeting time - 6:50pm leaving for 7pm.
• Things to bring - Drink, Warm top, Head torch, Billy Kit and cider tokens.

• Pub - The White Hart, Cheddar Gorge

Even the drive to this location is pretty awesome as you get to drive up through Cheddar Gorge.

It’s a short warm up run to the famous ‘HELL STEPS’. Then it’s time to give everything you’ve got for 30 minutes, blood sweat and possibly tears 😭.

Steps session will be over quickly (7:45) for anyone needing to get away quickly and for everyone else we will head for that spectacular sunset 🌅 view.

Then it’s to an amazing little pub in the Gorge!!

One last thing can I ask everyone to wear their yellow club shirts please as we want an awesome club photo as well as being a great reminder for everyone to rejoin/join.

So who’s in.............?????

Any one running London Note
The RMT has announced strike action on the DLR. This will run from 04:00 on Friday 20 April, until 03:59 on Tuesday 24 April. The strike has been called over a dispute with KeolisAmey Docklands who operate the DLR on behalf of TfL.

Plans are being developed with the aim of operating a limited service over the four days, which coincide with the London Marathon on Sunday 22 April.

If the strike goes ahead, extra bus services will be deployed along the DLR network over the four days. All other TfL services will be operating as usual, however there will be road closures around the London Marathon route from early Sunday morning. The Jubilee, Central, District and Hammersmith & City lines in East London are expected to be busier than usual and stations including Canary Wharf, Canada Water, London Bridge, Canning Town, Bank and Stratford may be exceptionally busy.

Further information on what services may operate will be communicated ahead of the strike and posters, digital boards and announcements in London Underground and London Overground stations will keep customers informed of the levels of service.

The application process for Good for Age places in the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon opens on 1 August 2018 and closes at 16:00 on 10 August 2018.
Do I qualify?
London Marathon Events has announced changes to the Good for Age qualification process for the Virgin Money London Marathon.
The number of Good for Age entries is capped at a total of 6,000 places for the 2019 event which will be split evenly with 3,000 entries for women and 3,000 entries for men.
You will be eligible to make a Good for Age application for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon if you achieve the qualifying time between 1 January 2017 and 10 August 2018.
The Good for Age qualifying times for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon are:
Men
Time (in hours)
Women
Time (in hours)
Men Age 18-39

Please note: If the number of Good for Age applicants exceeds the number of places available, then the qualifying time will be reduced evenly across the age group categories listed above until 3,000 runners of that gender are accepted.
Good for Age runners who were unable to run the 2018 race and withdrew using the existing process, will still qualify for a guaranteed 2019 Good for Age place, as long as they pay the entry fee by the deadline of 17:00 on 22 June 2018. The link will be sent on 4 June 2018 – full details are here
A Good for Age runner who has a place in the 2019 race but is unable to run will be guaranteed a place in the 2020 race only if:
They have run the same time or better than their original qualification time within the qualification period for 2020 (1 January 2018 to 12 August 2019) and
They apply through the standard Good for Age process between 1 August and 12 August 2019.

Anyone interested in my Edinburgh Marathon place? Race is 27th May. Only charity places remain via the website so if you are interested I need to know by Saturday evening at the latest to enact a transfer. £40 rather than the full cost of over £50. If interested please drop me an email. Many thanks.

Hi All,

Most of you may know that after the cold weather last week the restaurant on the 1st floor at Hutton Moor suffered from burst pipes and quite some damage. I have been told that it will take about 6 weeks to fix this. As an interim measure the meeting room on the ground floor has now been turned into a temporary restaurant. Unfortunately the layout of the stock in the meeting room means that there is no adequate space for us to be able to meet inside HM.

Unless it is raining heavily tomorrow night can you please congregate outside HM by the bike store/tennis court area. Please can you try to get there by 7:00pm so that we can quickly get sorted into our groups and get our run underway. The route tomorrow night is the Morrisons route in view of the number of people running Weston half, Forest of Dean half and the Grizzly on Sunday. The route is just 7 miles but can be easily shortened to 5 by coming back over the bridge by Farm Foods.

Good luck to everyone racing.

Next Thursday 22/3 is the March Prom run so I will need help as usual if you are not running please.

Thanks
Jim

Due to the current weather and the strong likelihood that it’s going to get worse before it gets better, there will be no club runs organised this evening from Hutton Moor. 😟
It’s not often we have to stay off the streets but tonight is one of those nights.
Please contact your mates in case they haven’t seen this.

MESSAGE ON THE GWENT LEAGUE WEBSITE TONIGHT

In view of the weather forecast in the Bristol area over the next few days we have taken the reluctant decision to call off the planned Gwent League fixture at Blaise Castle - we are deeply sorry.

Please use all your lines of communication to inform all potential participants etc.

Although some of the course is ‘useable with care’ it is likely to be dangerous in parts.

We have a duty of care to everyone involved - athletes, officials, spectators and anyone travelling. We have not taken this decision lightly.

Awards All individual and team awards will be made on the basis of the first four fixtures. Please look for details on the website.

• Session duration - Up to 2 hours, Leaders will have a deadline of 9pm to be back at Car Park.

TWAC Monday 19th Feb

Boatyard Bonanza!

This isn’t any ordinary social run, this is a TWAC special! We are keeping it local this week, Uphill to be precise! A short 3.5 mile flat course that starts on the beach and follows the river Axe up round past the boat yard, then further on up and back down and up the Hill to the Tower!
Yes, I lied, it’s not flat!
“What's special about that?” I hear you say! Well, this is TWAC with a Twist! Everyone who finishes the course before the last person gets to do hill repeats just before the Tower, until the everyone is back for a special finish!
“YAY!” I hear you say! (Or was that tumble weed and a distant church bell ringing!) This means King and queen of the hill awards are available! So, do you rush the course and hope you can do the most reps to win? Or do you take it easy, have a nice social run and make the fast TWAC’s suffer on the Hill!
The choice is yours!
This is for all abilities, and would make an awesome first session for any potential TWACs you might know!

- Date: Monday 19th Feb
- Session: social/fast/hill reps
- Meeting point: Uphill boat yard entrance
- Meeting Time: 6.50 for 7pm start
- Things needed: Head torch, warm top, trail shoes, hats gloves etc.. (as needed)
- Post run Pub: Dolphin Inn

The weather conditions are likely to be similar to this week, but as it is not quite as exposed and you are much closer to your car, so should defrost before the morning!
So, Who’s In?

Hi Tech Team, would it be possible for someone to pull the last Diary entry in December onto the January announcements/news page with the techy bit that places it on the right hand diary bit.

2018 Championship
Now that we are in 2018 you will be starting to plan your races for the first half of the year. I have now finalised the list and checked the dates of the races for the first 7 months but at present can only confirm the first 4 months as some dates are still to be firmed up. We will try to get these onto the site asap but if anybody wishes to make plans the races for Jan to April will be as per 2017 (dates may have changed by a few weeks) plus we have added the Wimbourne 20 on the 4th March and the new Weston Super half on the 18th March.

Just to say thanks to all the marshals and helpers who made the Hangover a success and helped make my first time as race director such a straight-forward task.

Hi Sara, It comes round so quickly. Could you sort Diary techy bits for me. Hope all well in the Weaver Household x.
