The Week Ahead 22 August 2016

The final Leisure Centre League road race on Tuesday in the delightful, traffic-free Parc Bryn Bach at the top of the valleys. A good Chepstow turnout and we can seal first place in the combined road and cross-country series.

Meet at our LC ready to leave at 6.

Thursday's run is the good ol' Gloucestershire Way, meet at 6.55. If you pass a Welcome to Worcestershire sign it's maybe time to turn back...

And finally, lots of members are running and/or helping in the Severn Bridge Half Marathon on Sunday. Hope it goes well for you.
