Upcoming Races?

The Vitality Series, of which we are race #2, starts on the 11th August with Old Eds. Entries will be made available on the 10th June for all 4 races in the series. Please follow our FB page for more info.

We as a club would like to support all 3 of these races (excluding ours where we will all be working) in full force as it caters for the majority of our runners. We will have a gazebo with food and drinks after each race and we encourage ll members and families to join us after the race for a drink in the gazebo. As these races comprise 5,10 and 21km events, we really see this as a great opportunity to get involved, run and socialise with the club. The races are as follows:

Old Eds -11th August

Wanderers – 25th August (all WAC members are to work and not run)

Harriers- 1st September

Rockies Gerald Fox- 15th September

 

Please get hold of Kent on 0846023172 should you be able to volunteer for gazebo duty for the above 3 runs.

Club Runs

Consistency is key and if you are looking for a great way to run a steady 10 – 15 km these are the runs for you. The pace is easy and the company great, this is how Sunday runs are meant to be. These runs depart from the top parking lot @08:00.
