Hi all,

September’s training is now up on the Training page.  Unfortunately, we will have to switch to the winter runs in September because of the failing light.  The winter runs are all based around the local villages and don’t really have any off road or country lanes running.

Maps of the runs will be available soon, but as always, please ask any of the regular members about the route, or about possible shorter versions.

The sweeper will also still be running and will have a torch / phone etc in case of emergency.


September is another busy race month with the West Glam League kicking off in LLanmadoc on the 27th.  This cross country series costs £2 a runner, and all those who enter score points for our club.  The series is well attended by local clubs and provides for good banter.


The Hilly 4 is another of our local races.  This year it is on the 8th September…usual start and finish at the Old House Inn, Llangynwyd near Maesteg.

The final race of the 5k series is also on the 12th September at Porthcawl Parkrun.  Good luck, remember the championship is now age graded, so you are all competing against each other now based on effort.

Links to all the results for this years championship are also now up on the Races pages.


Last, but definately not least, we have our first meeting for the Pudding Run this year on September 1st after training.  Please try and stay after training even if you are a new member or have plenty of experience at the event.  More details about the race are up on the Pudding Run race page.
