CHRISTMAS CRACKER 2013: BE THERE WITH (JINGLE) BELLS ON
Sunday 15 December 2013
Christmas is coming Whilst it may seem a little early in the year to be talking about the festive season, Weston Athletic Club are once again supporting Weston Hospicecare and other charities in their annual Christmas Cracker run at 11am on Sunday 15th December 2013.
The event, which has now been taking place for over 25 years and has raised thousands for charity, is a cracking 10k run along Weston-super-Mare’s beach and seafront. This year, 2000 runners are invited to take part in the festivities, but places fill up fast so Weston Athletic Club are encouraging people like you to take part and register early.
Online entries go live on Monday 1st July, and you can sign up to take part at www.westonac.co.uk. Postal entries are also welcomed after Thursday 1st August for any remaining places and submission forms can be found on the Weston Athletic Club website.
To keep up the Christmas spirit, all finishers will receive a long-sleeved t-shirt and mince pie for making it past the finish line and this year there is an extra special prize on offer to the 1st local male and female runners who make it to the end. If you live in a BS22, BS23 or BS24 postcode then you have the opportunity to win one year’s free membership to Expressions Gym at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre in Weston-super-Mare.
The Christmas Cracker always provides a fantastic festive atmosphere for both runners and spectators and, of course, fancy dress is encouraged. Event organiser, Malcolm Gammon, said “the amazing spectacle of 2000 runners setting off along the beach in so many colours is a delight to see for the hundreds of spectators who come to watch the event”.
Whilst the race may be quite a few months away, places always fill up fast so don’t forget to register online on Monday 1 July to become part of this wonderful local Christmas tradition.
