Well done to all the 72 competitors that took part in the Quantock Beast race on 8 July 2012, especially John Firth from Southville Running Club who was the first male in 38:24 and Kerry Wray also from Southville Running Club who was first lady in 44:06. After some horrendus weather in the days before, Sunday was a sunny, dry day although the competitors had rather a lot of mud to contend with. Many thanks to the Quantock Harriers that came to marshall.

Beginners / return to running sessions with Bex Dunn every Sunday at 9am meeting at the YMCA
Dont forget to take a look in the Gallery (more photos) for a few pictures from the London Marathon 2011 and in race results to see how Steve, Eddie, Jane and Jerome got on.
3/3/2011 - We will no longer be meeting at Morrison's Car Park the new meeting location is the YMCA in Friarn Avenue, Bridgwater, TA6 3RF. We are starting to meet at the YMCA from Tuesday 8th March.
Due to the fantastic increase in members we felt that a more official location was more appropriate, where we don't get in the way of the local shoppers!!
The YMCA also gives us more facilities: An indoor waiting area, Toilets, lockers, showers, vending machines and a gym. Lockers require a £1 deposit and the showers are £1.02. The meeting area is just behind the reception desk.
22/5/07 - Website launched.
