Bristol & West launch the Filton Flyer 5k

BRISTOL & West AC have at last found a new venue for their popular 5k road series.

The Aztec West venue, which had acquired a reputation for good competition and fast times, had to be abandoned after a problem with the landowners since when organiser Roger Brocklesby and his team have been searching long and hard for a suitable new venue.

That persistence has been rewarded with the new Filton Flyer 5k series which will take part on a two-lap circuit, all on tarmac roads, foot paths and cycle tracks, around Abbey Wood.

With close proximity to the M32 the event should prove accessible for runners travelling from around the west country and the club will be hoping that numbers are soon restored to the levels that flocked to Aztec West.

The following races, all starting at 7.30pm on Tuesdays, dates have already been arranged with the series kicking off officially next month.

Race dates:  February 27th; March 27th; April 24th; May 29th and June 26th.

The club is also proposing to hold a trial event on Tuesday January 30th (7.30pm).

The race HQ will be at DW Fitness First, Fox Den Road, Stoke Gifford, Bristol,
