GLCL: Road Race Series: Llanhennock
The second series in the GLCL Road Race Series and the forecast was for a warm evening with a 100% chance of hills!
There was another fantastic turnout from the Green Army with at least 45 Green Vests participating. The prospect of hills and promise of a ‘sting in the tail’ in the route (I’m sure that’s a typo and it should read ‘hill in the tail’) didn’t deter members from turning up, including some first-timers. Well done to those that chose this fixture as their first race – there’s nothing like a baptism of fire!
Despite the toughness of the course and the warm weather making it a veritable sweat-fest for many, it was a successful race with lots of smiles, the odd tear (we’re all looking at you Kim 😉 and the camaraderie and team spirit that makes PBBRC such a great running club to be a part of.
And well done to Sam Lewis Jones securing 4th position (I’m putting that down to my excellent application of Rock Tape ;).

Having run it about 7 or 8 times you know what is coming, but it is the toughest of the league series.
Of the people I saw during the run, Richard paced it really well and also Danielle. A big congrats to Jamie Parry for an awesome debut and well done to everyone who turned up and ran that hot and hilly course.
