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.

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. We were very lucky with the break in the weather by 9:00 it was pretty miserable again. Congratulations to any new pb holders achieved in what was certainly not ideal weather for it.

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.
Cheers Dave.

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.

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
