Weekly News

Formal Training. Tonight is the first Monday training session after the Christmas and New Year break. Meeting at the normal location, Coombe Dingle Sports Centre at 7pm.

Membership Renewal. Club renewals for individual and family membership are usually due this month but the normal membership section of the club website has been temporally suspended. This is because we are investigating the implementation of a new system.  Members will be advised on the exact renewal process very soon, just watch this space.

Bristol to Bath Marathon Training.  In readiness for those who are participating in early season marathons a training run has been proposed from Bristol to Bath (along the cycle path) on Saturday 16th February. If interested, leave a message to Lizzy on the WH Facebook page under Events.

Toll Free Wales. With the tolls now removed from the bridges there’s no excuse for not venturing over the border into Wales for running events in 2019. The Chepstow Harriers this year are advertising a 3 Race 10k Trail Series. The first event is the Offas MT 10k taking place on Sunday 7th April, followed by the Tintern Trot on Thursday 4th July and finally the Wentwood Trail 10K on Sunday 8th September.  All routes involve a combination of tracks and footpaths along some very scenic areas, often with stunning views.  Link to 10k Trail Series

Man V Horse. Blimey, entries went almost as quickly as Glastonbury Tickets. The site opened at 10am and by lunchtime all the places had gone! Well done to all those that managed to get a place, either as individual runners or the team relay.

Run Fest- Birthday Special. Line-up of speakers has been announced. 7pm Shirehampton Village Hall, licensed bar and birthday cake available too!
