Wadac parkrun - 15th Nov - update

Well - what an amazing response!

Thank you to everybody that has replied so enthusiastically offering to volunteer for the Winchester parkrun on Saturday 15th November.  All support roles are now filled, which is excellent!

As you know we are making this a special ‘Pacing run’.  We have pacers for even minutes from 20 to 30 minutes.  If there’s a super-fast runner out there who could pace 18 minutes then please volunteer at  We know it’s Gosport Half the next day so understand if you’re saving yourself.

Also - if anyone fancies bringing a cake on the day, that might be a nice WADAC way to celebrate all those PBs!!

With parkrun's increasing popularity volunteers are needed every week  - so if this has sparked your interest please visit the roster again and see if there are any other jobs you would like to help out with in coming weeks :)  See for details and how to volunteer.



Track Closure---Final Reminder

Please note the Athletics Stadium will be closed for track cleaning between 30th October and 5th November inclusive.

The adjacent Garrison Ground will still be available for training.


Could you help a blind runner (a beginner?)

Please see below an email from Christine Benning, our local UKA rep. As you can see, UKA could help.  I will pass this on to local parkrun groups, too.  Please get in touch with Chris directly if you can help (but copy me in to the email if poss -

We are looking for a runner in the Winchester area who could support a visually impaired person aged 24, who would like to start running.  Kate has not run before.  I wondered if we could find a volunteer or volunteers, either from the club or from a local Run England group who might be interested.

I can set up a workshop (Sight Loss Awareness and Guide Running Workshop) if required, or do a session for a small group of volunteers or a 1 to 1.

CC6 race 12 October at Fleming Park

The CC6 cross country league kicks off this Sunday 12 October at Fleming Park Eastleigh 9.30am.  All club members,15 and over, are invited to compete, just bring your club vest and run.  There is no charge and spikes are not essential.  This season the league have waived the speed restrictions on faster runners, so quicker competitors are welcome along with everyone else.  Its a great introduction to cross country running.
