Hangover 10k - Entry on the day available!

30/12/2011 21:12:07

Pre-entry for the Hangover 10km on January 1st 2012 is now closed but you can still enter on the day. It would be helpful if you could complete an entry form in advance and bring a cheque with you for £7 (or £9 if unaffiliated) made payable to Weston AC (or cash if you would prefer). So, if you were unlucky enough not to get into the Cracker, or simply want to start the year as you mean to carry on, why not give this a go?

A link to the Hangover 10k webpage is below where you will also find links to the paper entry form.

If you don't feel up to running, can you spare a few hours to help out? Jim Wotton is after a few more volunteers so if you can help please email Jim using the link below.

2011 Club Championship

28/12/2011 12:24:03

Congratulations to all the WAC runners who have participated in club championship races in 2011. All available race results in the championship have now been entered into the website so Malcolm will soon be getting out his slide rule to work out who finished where.

The web team do their best to ensure all results are entered but occasionally some are missed, especially in marathon races and if the club name is not included against a runner in race results.

To that end, can I urge ALL runners to check that their race results have been uploaded and report any omissions using the link below.

2012 Club Championship Races

23/12/2011 21:48:35

Message from Malcolm:

Here are the first 3 months of our Championship race list for 2012.

Important Notes:

1. We want to include as many of the Somerset Race series as possible.
2. We have substituted Exeter Half (which is NOT the Great West Run) for Blackmore Vale half marathon.
3. No date yet for Butleigh (that I could find).
4. The Yeovil Half (March 25th) replaces Forest of Dean half.

These will be inputted as events into the Events Calendar in the coming weeks.

The Massive have organised a Xmas night run for next Thursday at the White Hart, Cross. A shambolic frolic hopefully led by the lame one. If I dont make it Jim and Rog will lead. Five (ish) country miles with some altitude gain.
