Weston Prom Run
Following last months prom race which was found to be slightly short of 5 miles due to an incorrectly positioned turn cone we have decided to make the following offer: Any athlete who had entered, paid and run for just the month of November will be invited to compete in our December race free of charge. To take up this offer they will need to enter at race HQ on the night by completing an entry form and handing it into a member of our registration desk team. This offer is not available for on line entries. On behalf of Weston AC can I offer my apologies for the mistake made and ensure all runners that we have taken steps to avoid this happening again.
Please also note that due to the increased popularity of Icescape and challenge of managing members of the public crossing the race route we have decided to use the alternative 3 lap course for the December race which will avoid passing the front of the Tropicana. This alternative route was measured and ratified by ARC in August 2015.
If you would like to contact me regarding this or any matter please email me using the link on our contacts page
The race HQ is at the Bay Cafe in the Tropicana, Marine Parade, W-s-M, BS23 1BE. Please use the pedestrian crossings when crossing Beach Road. Parking is available along Marine Parade at a cost of £1.50 after 6pm.
