East Wales Selections

Hot on the back of excellent performance at Rogerstone, Jamie Parry, Stephen Mathers, Adam Roberts and Harry Davies have been selected to represent the men in the East Wales in the Inter Regional Championships.

We’ve also had six ladies selected to represent the region – Hannah Williams, Danielle Phillips, Sarah Lane Coote, Keri-Lyn Jones, Kathleen Jervis and Alison Holton.

Update: Also selected for East Wales is Neil Bynon for the men and Julie Cashell and Melissa Pearce for the ladies. Unfortunately, Melissa Pearce was selected but could’t

Nicola Jukes’ Surprise in the Post

Nicola Jukes received a nice surprise in the post this week with a cheque for her placing in the Swansea Bay 10K. Always nice to get a financial reward for your achievements.

Howling Bull the Third

6 Miles. Multi Terrain. 750ft Elevation. It’s the Howling Bull! 10 club members competed in the tough trail race and with team prizes up for grabs, a pep talk from captain Rachel ensured the ladies came away with the prize although they almost missed out due to a miscalculation by the organisers.

Nicola Jukes was also the fourth lady home and 1st FV40. In case you’re wondering what’s in the Ribena and Lucozade bottles, it’s home-made cider!

Sunday Runs

Kim led her little gang on a pre-cake run to Trefil on Sunday. Judging by the photos posted on FB, it was a fun run!

CiRF (Coaching in Running Fitness)

Our chairman Damian Williams attended the 2nd day of a 4 day Coaching in Running Fitness (CiRF) course on Sunday. This is a big step forward for the club and will lead the way for other members to embark upon in 2018.
