Weymouth for Breakfast
From Matt: 5:30 and it's lashing down. Lightning is amazing. 7:15 still raining a lot and I'm in the car. 7:50 some small floods (used to be called big puddles in my day) on the roads to Dorchester. 8:15 machine won't take my card for parking so a written note goes in the windscreen instead. 8:25 and they can't find my entry, did I enter? 8:40 back to the car for money so I can enter on the day. 9:00 Weymouth Ten start. 9:07:02 first mile down, too fast, can still see Steve Lye and Ashley Gingell ! 9:25 stupid hill and then 9:45 some bloody stupid hill. 10:00 wind at 97mph into my face. 10:17:44 Weymouth Ten finished, hat done and points scored. 11:32 full English at Wardon Hill. 11:52 write race report for Bungy Williams.
Well done to Adam as the first Club member over the line and Jackie our First Lady. 19 Club members, well done all.
From Lesley: It’s that time of the year when we need to set the Rules and Races for the 2022-23 Club Championships. We are reverting back to the format of pre-covid which will re-introduce the Points Queen and Points King Champions as well as continuing with overall male and female champions.
Lots of you took part in races this year so it would be good if we could have more of you entering the Club Championship races. It makes for good camaraderie, supporting others and having an enjoyable day out, often with cake to finish the day/morning! You don’t have be fast, it’s the taking part, having fun and earning points with like-minded members. To cut down on costs car-sharing is a good idea too.
The Slam Hats awards continue to be popular with members so that will continue. The only change to this is that to earn the Micro Hat to make it slightly more challenging the qualification is that you will need to run two 5k races, two 10k races and one 5 mile race. There are not many 5 mile races around so start looking early in the year. Weston-super-Mare hold a monthly prom race from September through to May and Baltonsborough 5 miler is on the August Bank Holiday Monday,
Please book as soon as you can as time is getting on and there are seating plans to produce and the venue will want to know numbers.

PUB RUN – SHEPTON BEAUCHAMP (20th October 2022)
From Mark: Sue led the not so fast group which initially comprised Sue, Alison, Rachael, Dominic, Rob, JC, and myself. Leaving the pub and running south through the village, we turned left and continued along littlefields lane. At this point we were joined by the faster group for a short while. At Shapway Cross, Alison and Rachael left the group to run a slightly shorter route. We turned right and continued along Shapway then turned left at Fouts Cross. Running towards Carey’s Hollow, we turned left and ran back to Shapway Cross. Turning right we then ran along the lane towards West Lambrook. At the village Dominic achieved 11 mph as he ran towards the traffic speed indicator. We continued into the village then turned left to run along West lane. We turned left again and ran down Rodwell lane which was dark, narrow and muddy, almost like going off road. We continued to Marsh lane. The road bent sharply to the left and we began a climb which got much steeper towards the top. We then descended following the lane back into Shepton Beauchamp coming out just to the east of the pub. Great run, thanks Sue for the route. For the meal we sat in a room at the back of the pub. Thanks Phil for organising.
