La Sympathique 10K
Whilst holidaying in France, Rhianydd Evans stumbled upon a race and thought it would be rude not to enter. She took part in the La Sympathique 10k in Vairé.
Rose Inn Series: Race 4
The fourth and final race in the 2018 Rose Inn Series took place on Tuesday and 26 club members competed. Sian Price finished overall 3rd SW for the series.
Just one PB to report this week with Suzie Tew finishing in 26:11.
After parkrun, a clueless Sam Lewis Jones was presented with a cake for his birthday which also included a ticket to Australia. At first he didn’t clock the fact that cake was Australian themed and totally missed the ticket attached to the base. To say he was shocked that he was going to Australia that same day was an understatement.
Will There Be A parkrun?
Peter Hire (Roma Pineto)
Kim Price (London Victoria Dock)

Race the Train
Julie Cashell and Sharon Woods travelled up to Tywyn, Mid Wales for Race the Train on Saturday. Results haven’t been published for the 10k race so not sure how well they got on against the train.

Roman Run Training
Sarah and Her Fan Club
The 140 Club
Richard Sheehy, Sam Lewis Jones, Marcus Smith and Tony Lewis were at the Mountain Air pub on Friday night for their infamous 35oz steaks. Little did Sam know he was there because Sian was still packing for his secret Australia trip! And with a time of 18:43 at parkrun the next day, the steak clearly weighed Sam down!
Congratulations to the Carters!
Congratulations to the Ruth and Stephen who tied the knot on Saturday! They even managed to squeeze in a pre-wedding run! It was a nice touch naming the tables at the wedding reception after the races they had run together.
Happy Birthday Laura!
Just in case anyone missed Nathan Harper’s ‘Gurner Queen’ post this week! 😉
