Lesley. Your vet category has now been amended. Will let you know if the Buff turns up.
Big thanks to all the Marshalls yesterday. We have had a message from a competitor and I wonder if anyone can help:
"At the end of the first loop I passed my jacket to a marshal but couldn’t find it at the end. If someone hands it in or reports it I’d be very grateful! It’s a karrimor blue wind lightweight jacket with orange zips and had half a packet of haribo and a berocca energy packet in the pocket."
Just wanted to say thanks to the organisers and all the helpers for an almost perfect Cracker yesterday. Now if you could just turn the wind down a bit next year ...
Merr Christmas to all. Phil
Sunday 08 December 2019
Hi. I very much enjoyed the run today. Lovely, friendly marshals and the bad weather held off until the afternoon. Thank you to everyone involved in providing the event.
I have a couple of points:
1. My age category is shown as V40 but I should be V60 - the female is correct. Please can this be corrected?
2. Near Uphill, I lost my black buff, black with a multi coloured pattern. I wonder if it has been handed in?
Congratulations to all the runners who braved the strong cold winds to compete in our Christmas Cracker races today.
A big thank you to everyone who came and helped make the race happen. A huge team of marshals both inside race HQ and outside on the course did an amazing job in challenging conditions. For those out on the course it was a very cold job and must have been really difficult. I have received many positive comments and thanks from runners to you all.
No matter how small or large the role you played it was all very important in making it a safe and enjoyable race for the 2000+ runners.
A job very well done. Thank you.
Friday 06 December 2019

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

PRESIDENTS BREAKFAST RUN
1st December 2019
This annual event has been cancelled for this year only, due simply to safety reasons, currently both Janet and I are hobbling around, one with a fractured ankle (me) and the other (Janet) awaiting a hip replacement. For example a minor slip in a crowded kitchen with very hot dishes etc could lead to a serious outcome. Therefor I'm confident you will understand my concerns, but I can assure you with my band of regular volunteers we can all look forward to a social run and full English breakfast around this time next year, as we will be back.
I have two entries available for the Christmas Cracker this year as myself and my partner are now unable to make it. Please let me know if you would like one or both!
Monday 04 November 2019
I'm getting a order up together, if your want anything ( Hoodie, Zoodie, Jacket, Cap or Sports Bag )now is the time, especially as Christmas is close. Remember it's money up front,
and should you wish to pay direct.
Our bank details ; HSBC , A/c 61100432, Sort Code 40-46-18,
Please include your name and also drop me a note with size.

Hi there. Would anyone like a plake in the Sodbury Slog this year? Due to injury, I am unable to run it.
Friday 25 October 2019
Congratulations to all the athletes who competed in our prom races last night. As always a big thank you to all those members and friends who turned out to help make it happen. Special thanks to all the team who have worked hard to allow us to bring the junior race back to life. A great job!
Sunday 13 October 2019
MENDIP MUDDLE - thank you to everyone who made today’s race such a success. It was great muddy fun running it and great to have so much encouragement from our excellent marshals all the way round. Not sure my trainers will be dry in time for the Stagger mind.

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

We managed to raise £252.60 pence which will be donated to the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity,6 weeks ago this great self funding service saved the life of my life long friend Steve Hale following an accident he had at his work. Many thanks as well to Adrian Noble who helped organise the raffle.
Wednesday 19 June 2019
A very big thank you to all the marshalls and other helpers on the Beacon Batch last night. All you did is very much appreciated.
Well done to all team yellow runners. It was great to see you take away a bunch of the prizes. Good stuff.

Lift or Car Share
I’m taking part in the Giant Head Marathon at the end of the month and wondered who else from the club might be doing it, I’m wondering if I could grab a lift/car share with someone.

I would like to congratulate everyone who achieved personal bests in the recent rounds of Spring Marathons.The improvement over the last few years have been very noticeable and encouraging.
However I do feel we may be forgetting the exploits of previous generations.
When the current web site was introduced it was not technically possible to add or change historical times and it is now left up to those of us that were around at the time to convey what went on. These are a few of them..........Perry Somers, Tony Pettit, Mike Jacob, sub 2.30 or 2.31. Jim Dixon at over 55 won his category in London in a time of 2.31, plus Brian Pople achieved remarkable time of 2.23 and there are others with noteworthy performances. Hopefully when the new web site is up and running maybe it can include these achievements.
Friday 31 May 2019
A must listen - Hayley Carruthers being interviewed on Marathon Talk podcast about what exactly did happen and why at this years VLM. (She's only been running just over two years and has gone form a 3:22 to a 2:33) - A real insight into what happens when you get the pacing wrong and why the marathon should be treated with respect! - (interview starts 1hour 3mins in)
Saturday 25 May 2019
Members of Compton Harriers Running Club made the 180-mile round trip to run last Thursday’s Prom Race. A few of us ran the event about 15 times in the mid-1990s. In the 1993/94 series we were regulars: Dick Kearn (then aged 42) and I (then aged 24) both got series prizes in our respective categories. Having not run the race since 2004, we decided to make a nostalgic trip last week, along with a fellow C. Harrier and his daughter, and were pleased to find the race is as good as ever. A few things have changed in the last 15 years (online entry, revamped Tropicana, a Ferris wheel, can’t run as fast as we used to...), but some things haven’t changed – the friendly atmosphere, slick organisation, sea breeze, and the longing for that faraway turning point to come into sight!
About 1.5 miles into Thursday’s race, I was ‘adopted’ by a Weston AC runner who kindly invited me to use him as a wind shield. I’m not sure that worked too well, as the wind seemed to be against us from every direction, but we did get into a nice running rhythm and ran the last 3.5 miles of the race together at a good pace, which made for an enjoyable race for me. He even alerted me each time he spotted one of my Compton team-mates running in the opposite direction, so I could wave to them! I didn’t have the chance to thank him properly at the end, but (from the results) I presume he was Paul Baker – please pass on my thanks. I finished in 34:28 as 1st FV40, Dick was pleased to break 41 minutes, Pete and Hana enjoyed their first Prom Run. Hopefully we won’t leave it 15 years before our next visit!
Thursday 23 May 2019
Congratulations to everyone who ran tonight shame that the wind got up more than forecast. Well done to those people winning tonights and series category prizes and to the WAC mixed team for coming 1st.
Thank you to everyone who came down to help with the 'last night of the proms'. Hopefully you did not get to cold whilst marshalling and you managed to get some chips if you wanted them. It really makes life so much easier for me when so many people turn up to help and I am sure that the runners really appreciate the support all the way along the prom.
Thursday 09 May 2019
Just to be clear, Darren S’P’acey is not of my doing. The Mercury have a new sports reporter who is rewriting my weekly reports. I can also spell Weston-super-Mare. Harrumph.

Chew Valley 10k, Sun 9 Jun.
I’m unable to run this event so if anyone would like my place (at no cost) the organisers have approved official transfer. Entries are still available if you need further places.
It’s a brilliant event, extremely well organised, music, ice-cream, cake, it’s a perfect day out.
Drop me a line if interested.

Clevedon 10k training group
Starting this weekend – Saturday 27th April, Jason Wyatt is going to be offering Sat am and Mon pm coaching sessions in the lead up to the Clevedon 10k for anyone who wants to better their time and focus on achieving a PB. As the plan is to offer a mix of led runs and intervals the time requirement is for people that are aiming to get somewhere between 45 and 55 minutes. Obviously, the numbers will be limited as the group can’t be too big, especially with the group runs. If you are interested in achieving a PB of between 45 and 55 minutes at Clevedon in June please send a message to Sheryl Selway who will add you to the message group. It will be on a first come first served basis so hurry.
Tuesday 16 April 2019

Hi Sara, I've sent you an email with details of what to do, it's no problem!
If I promise not to let the other half near it again could you send me club account details so that I can transfer the £15 in. Huge thanks
Sara, once you have renewed you cannot add/renew EA via the system. You will need to send Gerry £15 to the WAC account (put SB EA payment in ref) and then write to Niki who can update your record. Gerry will add you to the list sent to EA at the end of each month.
Thursday 11 April 2019
Any one going down to Shapwick could give a lift
I would be grateful email as above
Hi really sorry the other half paid my renewal but didn’t put EA membership on . How do I add it on? Thanks x

Saturday 16 March 2019
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Ian Purnell, Sarah Rideout, Michelle and Naomi for putting on a fantastic self navigational half marathon for the club today. The level of effort and detail made it an amazing event! Fun was had by all.
Congratulations and thank you to all the runners who competed in our two events on Thursday evening. Unfortunately we have received feedback from a number of runners who recorded the main race course as being slightly short of the 5 mile measured distance. On investigation it has transpired that one of our turn cones was incorrectly positioned. This oversite was due to a last minute change to the 3 lap course following excavation works on the promenade preventing us using our normal 2 lap course. When the alternative 3 lap course is used the turn point at the harbour end of the course has to be positioned slightly differently to the normal 2 lap course turn point and this was where the discrepancy occurred.
Please accept my apologies for this mistake and be assured we are taking steps to ensure that when we use the 3 lap course in future we will position the turn points correctly. In recognition of this mistake we will allow anyone who entered for the single race of March to run free of charge for the April race. Please simply speak to our team on the registration desk when handing in your entry form on April race night. This offer is not available for on line entries.
Malcolm Gammon Weston AC Prom Race Director.
Thursday 14 March 2019
Congratulations to everybody who ran tonight in blowy conditions on the revised course. Big thank you to everybody who came to help in whatever capacity esp. to Sheryl who helped me organise all the marshals and course repairs tonight and has offered to do the same for the April and May races.

Things to bring:
• Map case or plastic bag (and map if you have one)

Please see note below from Dave Jones about the Gwent League CC at Blaise castle on Saturday.
I have been informed Jan & I are not required for this Saturday's Gwent meetings, so we aren't going. I understand some members hope to go so I suggest they can either register as individuals or find out whose going & fill out an entry form as Weston AC. Then pay on block, mens / vets, ladies /vets. Times of races now on the website as is the course and distances for each cat. Registration is in Westbury Harriers club house near the car park, also parking is a problem so be warned it may take a while to get to the race field.

Important message for existing and new Hutton Moor Leisure Centre members:
I am pleased to confirm that Hutton Moor will now be offering Weston Athletic Club members discounted membership.
The price for a Weston AC membership will be: 18-59 year old - £33.15 per month by direct debit or £358.02 by single payment for annual membership.
The price for a Weston AC membership will be: 60+ - £27.70 per month by direct debit or £293.76 by single payment for annual membership.
With the direct debit membership type once your first direct debit has been paid you can leave HM by giving just 2 months notice.
This reduced monthly/annual rate will apply both to any new and all existing members. As HM will not currently know that you are members of Weston Athletic Club all that you need to do prior to your next DD being taken from your account is to visit the membership desk with proof that you are a member of Weston AC. This proof could be your membership card or copy of your most recent renewal letter (on your phone). I believe that HM will need to get you to complete a new DD (contract) for the revised amount.
Any problems at all please contact me or refer HM staff to Kylie Taylor - North Somerset Sales Manager, Legacy Leisure.
Due to huge numbers currently running at parkrun I am happy to liftshare with others......
If regulars are interested perhaps we can chat at parkrun (Burnham) soon

So the FullOnSport results system can't determine AC and Athletic Club are the same?
If that's the case, there would issues with every set of results published as many clubs use AC and Athletic Club.
Hi just a note
When entering on Fullonsport
Please put the full Weston Athletic Club and
not just Weston AC
As Chris was Listed as Weston AC
He was not listed in the team that on paper came 3rd and would have been 2nd
