MESSAGE FROM OUR CLUB CHAIRMAN

26/01/2017 12:21:53

Dear club member


As the 2017 racing season gets under way, I would like to remind you of a couple of your obligations as members of Weston AC.


If you enter any races this year, and state your club as Weston AC you then have a duty to run in club colours - either your WAC t-shirt or vest. While wearing club colours you are representing the club and are expected to behave in accordance with the club's code of conduct which can be found on our website.


The only acceptable exception to the wearing of club kit while racing as a WAC member is if you are participating in a race to raise money for a registered charity, and in that case you may choose to wear an official charity top instead. If the club is aware of any club member who races without following the above, they will have their race result disregarded from the club championship (if applicable).


Good luck everyone with your forthcoming races and I hope you achieve your running goals.


Ian Carpenter
Chairman
