Vest on Tour
Llandeilo NYE 10 Miler
Marcus, Kim and Richard (plus Mark Williams not pictured) travelled to Llandeilo on New Year’s Eve for the hilly Llandeilo 10-miler.
Another New Year’s Eve race and this time in Chepstow for the Rogue Runs Wye Wander – a 5-mile trail race in Piercefield Park which features a dip in the water. Sam Lewis Jones came 2nd place and Julie Cashell won her age category (her second win in two days).
As usual, there was a huge turnout on New Year’s Eve from the Green Army for the annual Nos Galan race in Mountain Ash. Not sure how everyone got on but Lauren squeezed in one last PB.

GLCL XC: Monmouth
The first GLCL XC fixture of the year and a return visit to Humble by Nature near Monmouth. Organised by Spirit of Monmouth, the course was slightly different to last year taking an extra field or two and running anti-clockwise. As always, we were well represented with over 50 club members running. Jamie Parry was first home for the club finishing in second place with Hywel Diplock not far behind in 5th place. Well done to Hayley Edwards for completing her first cross country with the club after only recently joining.
You Can’t Visit the Farm and Not Visit the Residents
Darren Swift was in Portsmouth for the Hayling Island Resolution Run, a 4.4 mile looped race. Darren completed 4 laps.
