BEGINNERS TRAINING PROGRAMME
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
