WCAC Newsletter #181: 27-07-18


Volunteers are needed to ensure this year’s Guilden Sutton Six Road Race, being organised by West Cheshire AC, proves a big success on Sunday, 16th September, (11am start).

If you are available to help out please contact Dennis by email at: [email protected]

And if you are a club member who has entered the race or is planning to run the race then please ask someone to help out on your behalf. The 10k is followed by a one mile fun run which can be entered on the day.

Please try to help out because money made from the event will be invested back into the club to subsidise transport costs and competition fees.


The Club is looking for someone to supervise the sale of club kit on a weekly basis after club training sessions. If you are interested please contact Dennis ASAP.


Parents and helpers at the club wanting to provide back-up to our graded officials are being asked to support an officials course being hosted at Ellesmere Port Sports Village on Sunday, November 18.

Anyone wanting to be a field judge, track judge, timekeeper, or starter should contact Dennis Wall either at track training sessions or by email at: [email protected]

The club needs to strengthen it’s experienced unpaid volunteers and plan for the future if we want to remain in leagues and competitions.


Many congratulations to Carys Roberts who sliced three seconds off the under 13 girls 1200m club record with a time of 3 minutes 53.3 seconds during the YDL match at Bebington Oval last weekend.


Two dates for your diaries are the Cheshire and North West Road Relay Championships at Delamere on Saturday, September 8, and the Northern Athletics Road Relay Championships at Sportcity, Manchester, on Sunday, September 23.

Ellie Robinson has kindly agreed to do all club entries and help sort out the teams, and the club will pay the entry fees.

Please look out for an email being sent to all club members who should let Ellie know if they want to take part in both or either of the events.

Please help Ellie by representing the club and supporting the two events.
