The Week Ahead 16 June 2014

On Tuesday, the next round of the LCL summer series takes us to an interesting traffic-free course at Parc Penallta, Ystrad Mynach just above Caerphilly at  CF82 7PG.

Meet to share cars at 5.45.

A mystery run on Thursday - well a mystery to the coaching team as we wait for someone to suggest where we might go! Have a little think and put your suggestion in the Comments box below - please!

  1. Don't forget it's Coity fell race on Sat - part of the CH fell series!

  2. Gloucestershire Way, Devil's pulpit, Offa's Dyke. Quite long but it's almost the longest day and some of us need to improve our stamina for the CWR.

    1. Those speedy chaps will be back by then, and for the rest of there is always the recorder.
      And I understand that it is Uraguay.

  6. Well, I'll need to know what shoes to wear on Thursday. On road or off-road ?
    I'll watch the England v Paraguay match on the VHS when I get home

  7. Yes def on road or off road shoes.
    England v Uganda. England v Parallellogram. England v any bunch of Johnny Foreigners. Bring em on. Who invented the game anyway? John Terry and his merry men will sort them out. I just heard that nice David Beckham isn't playing. Sack the selectors I say!

  8. Thanks for reminder above of Coity Fell Race which I should've mentioned in the Week Ahead as the next in the Club Fell Series. A goodly hill race based at the Whistle Inn way on the Blaenavon/Brynmawr road. The steam trains may be puffing along.

  9. The steam trains won't be puffing as much as the runners !

  10. Very nice to have a drink and sweet nibbles at the finish of Parc Penallta tonight.
    Thanks to all who set it up and had to clear it away afterwards !

  11. Yes many thanks for tea/coffee nibbles, much appreciated. I hope we're continuing to take turns at providing this service.
    Syd & I on the finish were a bit concerned that there were very few Chepstowites cheering on the later runners as they came in, compared with the numbers from other clubs.

  12. A great deal of interest in Mr Cram's suggested route for Thursday.
    It looks like it'll be Glos Way all the way to Parson's Allotment, then cross the Coleford Road just past Tidenham Chase church, following the footpath to Miss Grace's Lane, right along MGL, left to Devil's Pulpit, back along Offa's.
    So apart from Welsh St/Dell/Deadman's Lane/Mopla etc in both directions, it's off road. But unless we get rain before Thurs evening we shouldn't need much grip (but please don't blame me if you fall a over t!

  13. Well I hope the runners who stay at home, enjoy that football game against Ukraine.

  14. In order to do the run and also follow the footy, I plan to do it early. So I'll be going from the leisure centre at 17:00; it's unlikely that anyone else will be there so I won't wait beyond 5pm.
    Did you know that the population of Uraguay is about the same as Wales, but with an area about eight times Wales?
