WAC Prom Teams 2008-2009 Series Announced

16/10/2008 17:35:43

We have selected the prom teams for the current prom series. This year we have adopted a slightly different approach.

The Mens and Ladies 'A' Teams have been selected for their supreme athletic ability along with their commitment to run the prom run series. All other teams have been selected on a random basis with no consideration for ability or commitment. This should at least make it interesting and develop into a Weston A/C Prom Team competition between all the other teams'.

Copies of these teams are posted on the Weston AC noticeboard and will be available to see at the October prom run.

If anyone has any concerns or issues with this please contact one of us as there is still time to make minor changes.

Malcolm, Dave and Ian.

Mendip Muddle Provisional Results

12/10/2008 20:56:32

Thank you to all the runners who took part in todays Mendip Muddle race. The weather was exceptional (even a little too hot?) for the time of year which meant that the water stops were seeing frantic activity.
Thanks go to all the WAC and RNLI marshals, helpers, friends and family who worked so hard throughout the day to make the event such a success.
The provisional results are available below. Can I invite runners to check their results and alert me to any issues. We do have 5 occurrences of duplicate race numbers appearing which could be runners having completed the race going back up the course and coming back through the finish area. Please email me if your name is missing.
We also have available some race photos which are work in progress but you may wish to have a peek.
