Weston Athletic Club’s Chris McMillan has enjoyed another outstanding week of running with two race victories in four days.
Entry opens on Saturday, July 1 for the annual 10k Christmas Cracker race at Weston-super-Mare. This year the race celebrates its 30th anniversary, and organisers Weston Athletic Club have a couple of bonuses in store for everyone who takes part.
Ten men and ten women headed down to the Jurassic Coast at the weekend to take part in the annual Charmouth Challenge event. The race is almost entirely off-road, and follows an eight mile hilly course with breathtaking views along the coastline. Classiﬁed as a fell race, the course includes over 1,500 feet of climb, and this year’s challenge was made even more so by the rising temperatures in full afternoon sun.
It’s great to see so many club members competing in many different events every weekend. This weekend alone we had members taking part in at least eight different races - not including our championship race at Torbay - from 5k parkruns to ultra marathons and iron distance triathlons.
As the club’s membership continues to grow, it’s just not possible for us to cover all these different activities in our weekly race reports which focus mainly on the club’s championship events and our own races too.
But we’re conscious that this also means that some amazing achievements don’t get the credit they deserve. So please, if you go out and do a race that’s not in the club championship or organised by the club, post about it here so your fellow club members know what you’ve been up to - especially if you get a personal best, or compete in a longer distance event for the first time.
Here’s to a great summer of running for us all.
The 2017 Christmas Cracker is now open for entries. This a our 30th anniversary this year and as well as tech-tee all entrants will get a free photo of themselves in the event; downloadable from www.photofit.net.
For full details see our race page, full-on-sport or facebook.
Also back for it's third year the MINI CRACKER for anyone between the ages of 7 and 15, this is a 2km race with a chocolate bar for all competitors. Entry is via Full-on-Sport.
