The Week Ahead 23 Oct 2017

Tuesday’s session is a 2 for the price of 1. School Hill and the Underpass Steps, 15 minutes on each.

And Thursday’s Run takes us over the Severn Bridge. It’s a good 10 miles if you accept the challenge of running all the way into England and back on the opposite side, but you can choose the distance that suits you by turning round at, say, one of the towers.

The Week Ahead team would like to hear in the Comments box from any members who do complete the challenge. Let us know how long it took you.

Meanwhile the 45 Minuters will be doing their usual all-stay-together run. Here again, the Weaker Head team will be delighted to hear how long that run took.

The Week Ahead 16 Oct 2017

Tuesday's session is that old favourite, the Danes Loop. A nice fast downhill and a testing uphill. What more could a Chepstow Harrier ask for?

Then straight after come to the LC bar for our Have Your Say evening. Chip butties and lots of chat. What more could a Chepstow Harrier ask for?

And finally, Thursday's run is St Arvans, Porthcasseg, Gaer Hill and all points west. Head torch recommended. Or join in the 45 minute all-stay-together run on another imaginative course. What more could a Chepstow Harrier ask for?

The Week Ahead 9 Oct 2017

On Tuesday hie down to Thornwell shops for that old faithful, the Loop. Such a worthwhile sessions, 1200 metres of up and down, with a marvellous warm-up in the jog down. If you drive down, get there by at least 7.15 to allow time for your warm-up and drills.

Thursday's run takes us to Mathern via Hayesgate, while those looking for a shorter, steadier run can opt for the 45 minute stay-together run.

And finally - on Saturday at the Llandaff Fields to the north-west of Cardiff the first Gwent League of the new season. Flatter and less muddy than Park Bryn Bach was on Sunday, we'll still have a good time. Watch the Captains' email for meeting times.

The Week Ahead 2 Oct 2017

On Tuesday the first of this year's Severn Bridge 5k Time Trials. Starts at 7.30 at the usual place on the up-stream cycle track. As always don't forget your hiviz: we share the track with bikes, motorised and pedal.

Thursday's run is the choice of  the Boughspring runs, or as usual the 45 minute guided run welcomes those who want a not-too-fast continuous run with all staying together. We vary routes imaginatively and welcome suggestions.

And finally, on Sunday the first Gwent Leisure Centre League cross-country at the scenic and challenging Parc Bryn Bach by the Heads of the Valley road near Tredegar. Starts at 11. Watch for the meeting time to share cars. The cafe/park centre will host the post-race prize presentation for the Summer League. Stay for a hot drink and snack, and cheer on our series winners.
