The Winter Edition of the Sorbrook Slog took place on Sunday and it was a disappointment that there was no bale of hay to climb over. There was still plenty of hills, mud and water!
Looks Like The Sorbrook Slog Lived Up To It’s Name
The Green Army came away with a big haul of booze after taking 3rd Overall, 1st Senior Male, 1st Vet Female and the Overall Team Prize (there was just a single prize for the fastest team rather than men and women).
Muddy Woody 6
Trail run fans Sian McGoldrick and Suzanne Court travelled to Hereford on Sunday for the hilly and muddy Muddy Woody 6 race. There wasn’t any chance of them getting during the race with the ‘Flare Gun’ that Sian bought from Suzanne!
Royal Parks 10K

Katherine Wilkiams gave her Green Vest its first airing of 2019 at the Zodiac Run in Margam Park. The race was a 3.3 mile trail loop and you had 7 hours to complete as many laps as you wished. You also got a giant 100mm medal for finishing.
