Begin your 2018 with a Hangover...

Many of Weston’s top athletes – plus plenty of fun runners too – will strap on their running shoes on New Year’s Day to take part in an aptly-named event.

The Hangover 10k is organised by Weston Athletics Club, and begins and ends at Kewstoke village hall. It follows a fast course around the village’s quiet country lanes.

As it’s name suggests, it is viewed by entrants as the perfect way to clear the head after the excesses of the night before, and to begin the new year with a healthy outlook.

More than 200 runners are expected to take part, with their entry fees going to help support Barton Camp, a volunteer-run respite care centre for disadvantaged children. Last year’s event helped raised £1,240 for the charity.

The race begins at the village hall, in Crookes Lane, at 10.30am on January 1. To book your place, priced £8-10 in advance, visit www.westonac.co.uk
