To qualify for the draw you have to:

We have a new Race HQ for the Weston Prom Run. From the next race on 20th December we will be based at the Pavilion Bar, 2 Upper Church Road, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 2DT. The bar faces out on to Weston Sea Front and is only a short distance from our previous Cabot Bars location. The route will be changed very slightly, so that the start and finish area is directly in front of our new venue. Start time will be 7:30pm as normal.
Race numbers and Race Information Sheet have now been despatched to all runners.
We now have a supply of wonderful Weston A.C. car stickers. See Dave Jones while stocks last.
