Burnham Half Marathon

Weston Whippets saw a strong team run this brilliant event on the weekend. Sixteen of our members supported this local event, with the hopes of running a great race. We had a number of first time Half Marathoners taking part. 

Great work for all of them. Special mention to Tim and Lynne for taking on their 2 half marathons within weeks. Both of their first races were very hilly trail half marathons. They definitely deserve a rest now.

Thanks to Burnham on Sea Harriers for arranging a great race.

To celebrate the Coronation of King Charles and Queen Camilla our runners had a Royally great run! They dressed in their own interpretation of the King and Royalty and went for a run around Weston's Coronation estate on 2 separate occasions.

The team showed off some amazing outfits, including King Kong, Elvis - The King, King Charles and we had a bit of Geri Spice going on too! One thing that our club embraces is a good old fancy dress fun run!

A huge thank you to our wonderful Social team led by Sarah for planning and delivering both Coronation runs for our members.

If you'd like to come and enjoy a run with our Social team, please do get in touch. You can contact us for info at mailto:westonwhippetsrc@gmail.com

Youth Team Food Prep Session

Some members of our Youth Team came along to a brilliant food preparation session at Banwell YCC.

During the session, the team followed instructions to make their own "No Bake Energy Bars" using a recipe from The Body Coach.

Everyone did a great job and went home with a full tray of bars to pop in the fridge for after their next runs.

We include a nutrition module to our Youth Team sessions because, as coaches, we feel that all athletes should have a good knowledge of how good nutrition supports their exercise. It also supports healthy eating.

This session was delivered by Club Coach Russell.

Weston Whippets 5th Birthday!

On Sunday 5th February, Weston Whippets celebrated it's 5th birthday in style.

Our members and their families took part in a 12 hour relay with the celebrations starting at 5am. Every 15 minutes saw 2 new runners taking on a 2k (or 15 minute run) before passing on the birthday baton to the next pair of runners. 

Our first runners of the day were our Club Chair and Co Chair, Shelley and Julie, who formed a brilliant tag team with mother and daughter team Chris and Karen. Between the 4 of them the first hour of running was covered before other members of the club came to join in the relay with their families.

Almost 85 of our members came and took part in the celebrations for their club and we enjoyed cake and prosecco throughout the day.
