Offa’s Dyke 15
A crack team from the Green Army travelled to Hay-on-Wye on Saturday for a damp and windy 15 mile bimble along the Offa’s Dyke Path. Sarah Jeremiah came away with a fancy glass after winning 1st Vet 35.
The popular Rabbit Run took place on Saturday with a number of the Green Army braving the river crossing and the big dipper sand dune. I don’t think there was a team photo and good to see that Paul Stillman was at the river crossing so looking forward to those shots!
GO TRI Cardiff University Aquathlon
Steven Phillips was in Maindy, Cardiff on Saturday for the GO TRI Cardiff University Aquathlon.
Summer Speedway 10k
Billed as a very fast race featuring top runners from the area, the Speedway 10k took place on Sunday morning and was a mix of drizzle, wind and some warm sunny spells. It was interesting photographing the race and watching some runners pulling out during the race, including the favourite to take the 1st female spot.
Lauren ran a cracking race with a huge 10k PB finishing 1st female in a time of 34:54 – a minute and 20 seconds ahead of the second female. Nic, still struggling with her knee, took 1st V40.
