The club now has details of how to enter the Great Bristol Half-Marathon to be held on Sunday 23rd September 2018 at the reduced club fee of £32:00 [instead of £40.00]. To prompt Keith Brackstone to send you the entry access token you now need to pay the club £32:00. The simplest way is to pay on-line by a transfer to Bristol & West Athletic Club, Lloyds Bank, Sort Code 30-16-11 and account number 01802071 and let Keith know or send a cheque made payable to Bristol & West Athletic Club to Keith Brackstone, Fernside, Fishpool Hill, Bristol BS10 6SW (or give him a cheque at training).
Please be aware that club entries will close on 31st August 2018 and all club entry tokens must be used by Monday 3rd September 2018. Over 70 members used the club entry scheme to enter the Bristol 10k but several club members still will run in the race and have paid full price. Don’t make the same mistake this time – use the club entry system.
Remember to be able to enter for the club you must have paid your club subscription for 2018 as that prompted us to renew your EA registration (cost £15) on 1st April 2018 as you need to be EA registered to take advantage of the club rate. If you have let your club membership lapse you need to talk to Alice Doggrell, Club Membership Secretary, to rejoin.
There are also free elite places for men who have run sub-69 minutes and ladies who have run faster than 83 minutes. If you qualify for an elite place please contact Keith who will liaise with the Great Run Company to get you a free elite entry.
