On Tuesday it’s the monthly 5k on the Severn Bridge. Come and have a quick sharp thrash, and get yourself a good time.
A nice choice on Thursday. We’ve got the faithful old Sedbury 7, BUT... a seductive alternative is an away run for the off-roaders on some of the nice trails in Chepstow Park Wood. Meet at the Leis Ctre to share cars at 6.55, or head straight to the car park we use for the Club Handicap ready for a 7pm start.
Tom Gibbs will be guiding everyone on this exciting night-time jaunt. Remember your torch, and those who’ve run off-road with Tom and Astrid before will know that everyone stays together at a pace that suits the slowest.
After whichever run you do, pop back into the Bar afterwards to take your pick of the free kit giveaway that Tom postponed from last week.
I can’t keep Tom Gibbs out of this Blog! Remember he’s organising the classic Quantocks 7 mile fell race starting at Holford Geeen in Somerset at 11am this Saturday. I try to run this every year. The Quantocks are picturesque rolling hills with sea views and no tricky ups or downs. At £3 enter on the day, you can’t beat it. Contact Dick (a Comment after this Blog will do nicely) if you want to share cars.
And finally – phew! – a most important race on Sunday. February’s Club Champs is the LC cross-country at Parc Bryn Bach, the beautiful country park near Tredegar just off the Heads of the Valleys road. There’s a nice visitor centre where you can enjoy a hot meal afterwards, and good changing/shower facilities. Race starts at 11am and we’re meeting to share cars at 9.15. If it’s your first LCL race of any kind, see Syd on Tuesday or Thursday for a race number. And you need to wear some sort of Club top in the race – vest, short or long Club Tshirt, whatever you’ve got.
