We did really well last year but could have finished even higher if we'd had more commitment at the races early in the season. The four races before the end of this year are all open for entries and the links to do so are included above.
It is particularly important for us to get a good turn-out and perform well at the Solent Half Marathon. The date of this race clashes with a number of other events which is a shame, however this can be used to our advantage as rival clubs are likely to be light on numbers in that race so a good WADAC turn-out would guarantee that a strong league placing can be banked.
For anyone new to this - as a member of the club you are expected to represent WADAC in races and for road runners the HRRL is the primary way to do this. You don't have to be super fast (though if you are that's great) - it's mainly about getting a good number of entrants. And if you do all 12 races in the season then you get a trophy from WADAC and a rather splendid T-shirt from HRRL! Anyone doing 7 or more races will get a mug from HRRL with their name and individual league placing listed and of course there are prizes at each race and the WADAC Grand Prix competition to boot. What's not to love.
