About Christmas Cracker 2021


The 2021 Christmas Cracker race will take place on Sunday December 19th. Now in its 33rd year, this is Weston AC's largest race by far and people come back year after year to take part in the festive run.  All standards of runner take part so don't be put off if you are a new runner. All runners are actively encouraged to wear fancy dress.

For the latest information visit the Cracker webpage.


Due to the ongoing uncertainty around COVID restrictions we have introduced a number of changes for the 2021 Christmas Cracker, which are detailed below. In summary, these are as follows:

  • A single water station at the end of the race – please carry your own water if you think you will need it

  • We are not providing T-shirts or mince pies for race finishers – this is reflected in the reduced entry cost

  • There are no shower facilities available at the College – bag drop and toilet are still available

  • We will not be holding a prize-giving ceremony in the college after the race – prizes will be posted after the event  


The charity will again be Weston Hospicecare which Weston Athletic Club has been supporting for over 15 years.

Weston Athletic Club will be organising a 10k training programme this autumn in the run-up to the event to help runners prepare for the race. As well as preparing people physically, we’ll also give people advice on pre-race nutrition, hydration and what kit to wear when running.

The Christmas Cracker training programme will begin on Monday October 4, with sessions every Monday evening at 7pm, and Saturdays at 8am. A charge of £30 will be made at the beginning of the course and all the profits will go to Weston Hospicecare. All the coaches and leaders from the club give their time freely.

Anyone wanting to sign-up or find out more should contact Sheryl Selway  Email: 


Race HQ on the day is at Weston College, Knightstone Road, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 2AL

Please note that the race start is on the beach by the Grand Pier.  

Allow yourself 20 minutes to get from the College to the start location.
