Christmas Cracker

23/09/2019

The Christmas Cracker race is only 11 weeks away! On Sunday 8th December. It is our biggest and busiest race of the year. As usual we need everyone who is available to help ensure the race goes off smoothly and is another huge success. This of course means YOU! A survey will soon be landing in your email inbox which allows you to let us know if you can help and what you are available for. There are many jobs to be done both inside race HQ and outside on the course. As well as race day help we also need help on a few tasks leading up to the day of the race so you may be able to help us with those.



Most importantly please, please , please complete the survey. It only takes a few minutes and saves us a huge amount of time chasing members to try and find out what they can help with. All helpers get the chance to come along on Saturday 7th December and run our own club version of the race, the “Not Cracker” with a free breakfast afterwards. So don’t miss out and please let us know what you can do by completing the survey as soon as it arrives.

Weston do it by halves

Over 60 runners from Weston Athletic Club toed the line on Sunday morning with 12,000 others for the start of the Bristol Half Marathon. The hot temperature was not ideal for running, and made the going tough.


Weston’s fastest man and woman were, unsurprisingly, Susan Duncan and Chris McMillan who both continue to put in stellar performances time after time. Susan ran her fastest half to finish in 1.25.08, second in her age category and tenth woman overall. Chris finished the race in 14th place overall with his blistering time of 1.13.44, only 38 seconds off his personal best.


Kieron Summers also took second spot in his category with his impressive time of 1.15.49, while Matt Wheeler was third in his with his 1.24.28 finish...Read more

Weston have the power

Sunday morning’s cool autumnal sunshine set the scene for the 28 runners from Weston Athletic Club who travelled to Oldbury Power Station for the annual 10 mile road race organised by Thornbury Running Club. Fast and flat, the route sticks to quiet country lanes with few distractions.


Weston’s runners performed outstandingly, with Susan Duncan stealing the show and winning the women’s race in a blistering time of 1.03.48. Nia Davies and Jo Coveney took second and third club and category positions in 1.13.28 and 1.14.29 respectively.


Chris McMillan finished third overall, averaging sub-six minute miles with his 55.53 time. Chris’s time, along with Kieron Summers in 57.00 (fifth overall), Chris Selman in 1.01.56 and Matt Wheeler in 1.02.49 earned Weston’s men the overall team prize...Read more

Weston AC do battle for cake


Crook Peak Cake Race starts and finishes at the foot of the hill, and although only three miles long, features two steep climbs to the crest of the peak and the top of Wavering Down.

Matt was narrowly beaten by Chris Selman who crossed the line in 22.12. Michelle Fryer and Bex Vaughan both ran strong races to take second and third club pots in 26.44 and 28.50...Read more
