Charity training run – Monday, August 18th

Final reminder!


On Monday, August 18th we will be running in Blaise Castle as an entire club. The juniors and seniors will run together as one big group. Last year's run was a great advert for the club and a good way to finish our training at Blaise before moving back to Coombe Dingle.

We'll be raising money for charity from the gate money and any other donations but we need your help in choosing a charity. So if you'd like to nominate a charity, please send an email to by the end of Thursday, July 31st. An on-line poll will then be set-up so that you can vote for the charity. The charity with the largest amount of votes will get the money.


Mob Match 10K

It’s the Mob Match 10K this Friday, July 18th and we need as many of you to turn up as possible.

The Mob Match 10K is run along the GWR Towpath 10K route and is an event where clubs in the Avon area race against each other. The team with the lowest number of points (based on finishing positions) will win.

It’s easy to enter too – just turn up at the start line with your Westbury vest on, run as fast as you can for 10K making huge efforts to pass any non-Westbury vests, get a token at the end and hand it in to the Westbury team captain who is Robin Phillips. There are no numbers to pin on at the start of the race.

It’s a great social event and will also be the final race in this year’s club championship.

The results and presentation take place at Bar BS3.

How much does it cost to enter? Nothing – it’s FREE! The organisers would like each club to supply a marshal or two, so if you’re not running but going along to watch, please consider volunteering.

Further information about location etc., can be found on the GWR website - – just ignore the race number information.

Training on Monday, July 14th

Senior training will be taking place on Monday, July 14th, but due to the Westbury Wipeout we are likely to be a be light on group leaders due to a number of them helping out with the race. If we do not have enough group leaders, experienced members of the groups will be asked to help out.

So as not to interfere with the race organisation, please do not congregate by the clubhouse but by the large tree to the right as you look out of the clubhouse.

There will be around 300 children taking part in the Westbury Wipeout, so parking will be much more limited than normal.
