Mid Season updates

We’re over half way of the WSR Season and we’re getting excited for the next couple of months ahead with some new events.

Following the first event of the Wyvern Series in July, up next is new Crafty Fox on 8 & 9 September with a Half and Marathon. Along with the other new event added to this year’s calendar – Chase races, a marathon and half Marathon in beautiful Six Penny Handley.

For Wyvern series there will be winner’s prizes for the series, so you will have to do all half’s or all marathons not a mix, if you are in it to win it as it were.
We are also doing club prizes for first running club or group in half and marathon series.

Prizes will be won on Running club position not the individual runners so it’s all about the team and not the one person as it were

Remember to join the Facebook events for each race as they have all the latest news and updates right up until race day.

Deferral/Transfer Deadlines

Some of you are being caught out and missing deadlines for deferring your entry to another WSR event or Transferring your place to another runner if you become unable to participate in an event. This year we have published dates on our website in each race section and we post on Facebook to give a reminder. Most are 1 week before the event but some are 2 weeks where we have to order t-shirts.  We don’t like saying no to things but have to meet our own deadlines for each event and give yourselves enough time to get everything prepared.

Camping is an enormous success at our races. We are ever grateful to farmers and venues for the use of their fields. The campsites are huge and right in the centre of the race, a short walk from the start/finish and registration. At fantastic value of £15 for a pitch for the weekend, you can be at the heart of the action. Book online here https://www.fullonsport.com/event/weekend-camping-for-a-wsr-event-2018/profile
