All club members should have received a reminder about renewing their club membership which is now due. Can everyone please renew their membership as soon as possible. More details about club membership can be found at: https://wcac.niftyentries.com/Membership

Anyone who is not renewing their club membership is being requested to send our club membership secretary, Debbie Baker, a quick email to: debbaker@talktalk.net


It was great to see so many club officials and volunteers on Wednesday night working to ensure this year’s Essar Chester Spring Five Miles Road proved such a big success.

Many thanks to all those who turned out to support the race which, like all the races we organise, help generate much-needed finance to subsidise transport and club equipment.

It was also great to witness a double success story with both our men and ladies winning their team competitions.

Results and photos from the event can be found here: https://www.westcheshireac.co.uk/2018/04/12/essar-west-cheshire-spring-5/


As in previous years, West Cheshire AC are tasked with providing a team of 40 enthusiastic marshals to support the Chester Half Marathon. In return, a generous contribution is made to our club funds by the half marathon organisers (Active Leisure Events), so all club members are likely to benefit from this because this money helps us to keep our membership fees low and subsidises coach travel for our teams to track events.

Marshalling at the Chester Half Marathon is always an enjoyable morning cheering on around 5000 runners (especially the many club members who are representing us). You’ll get a technical ‘Crew’ T-shirt and goody bag to take away with you. No previous experience is required. You will need to be available between 8am and 12 noon on the day of the race.

Can you please confirm by replying to an email sent from Ellie Robinson, if you are able to marshal on Sunday, 29th April. Please consider helping out even if you haven’t done it before, it would be good to have some new faces in the West Cheshire AC marshal zones this year.


Members are being urged to enter the Cheshire Track and Field Championships being held at Macclesfield, on Saturday and Sunday, May 12 and 13. The online entry link can be found at: https://cheshire.athletics-uk.org/
