Leisure Centre League 10 Jan

We've just heard that the third cross-country will be held at Parc Bryn Bach in place of Usk because of the unavailability of the Usk course.

But just to ring the changes the race will be run in the opposite direction to the first fixture that we ran there in September.

The Week Ahead 28 December 2015

So here it is, the last Week Ahead of 2015.

Tuesday's training is the Severn Bridge Hill session from the cycle track/foot path on the up-stream side. The same as we did at the end of October you may remember.

And if you feel like a run on New Year's Eve, come to the Leisure Centre steps at 7 on Thursday.

And finally, our annual Mob Match with Les Croupiers at the Kymyn Fell Race at Monmouth on Saturday. A fairly gentle intro to fell racing, come to the Monmouth School Sports Club just across the road from Lidls for the 2pm start. And don't forget your club vest or you won't score.

Only a fiver on the day, with sausage and chips for all finishers.

The Week Ahead 21 December 2015

If you haven't signed on to Neil's Treasure Hunt on Tuesday, he may still be able to squeeze you in with a small bribe.

Keen runners who need their Thursday running fix should gather at the LC steps at 7 for the Tour of Tinsel Town.

LC will be shut but bring a towel and clean clothes and a couple of quid - I hear there are a few also needing the traditional Harriers pre-Christmas Thursday drink (Coach & Horses? Spoons? Show your preference in the Comments box, and a couple of us non-runners may join you).

And finally, a very merry yuletide to all our readers!

And there's a full running programme the following week, mind. The seasonal excesses must be run off.

The Week Ahead 14 December 2015

By popular request we're doing the Beech Grove paarlauf on Tuesday. So think about partnering up with someone of about your ability.

Beech Grove is opposite the Athletic Club in Bulwark. We meet about 100 metres up from the junction with Mathern Road.

Be ready to run at 7.20.

Thursday's run is the Hayesgate route - changed from the Severn Bridge 5k because many members are going to the Shangri La meal that evening. Have a good time!

Thursday 17 Dec

Because the scheduled 5k Time Trial will leave little time for those going to the Shangri La meal, we're putting on a short Hayesgate run instead.

Apologies to anyone disappointed by this. There'll be another Time Trial on 26 January.

The Week Ahead 7 December 2015

Down to Thornwell on Tuesday for the famed Loops. Be there ready to go at 7.20.

On Thursday choose one of the Boughspring runs.

And finally, the last Club Champs race of the year, the Merthyr Mawr Pudding Race. Good luck everyone!
