April 2014

Hi all,

Congratulations to all who completed any or all of the Championship races this year…

Final winners will be presented on the presentation night on 27th June 2014

The evening will start at 7pm at the Tennis Club.  At around 8pm we will transfer to Cowbridge for an Indian meal at Shampan Restaurant.  Bus will return at about 1am…drop offs around Bridgend as needed.

If you want to come along, we need a deposit (£10) to secure a place on the bus.  This will be refunded at the meal.


Please remember we encourage (but not beg!!) members to take part in the Club Championship.  There is a £10 reduction in fees for all who complete 50% of the races, and a 50% reduction in fees for those who complete the “Full Monty”.  Those who complete the “Full Monty” also get a highly sought after T-shirt.

The Porthcawl Parkrun has just broken the 200 runners mark!!

This event is getting bigger as the year progresses and more and more people spread the word.

This event is helping to increase our membership numbers.  It is a positive step for many people whose running fitness needs a boost.

With this in mind, we will be starting a 5km specific training session which will run alongside our usual efforts session.  Colin McQueen will be organising these sessions, bear with us as we plan and arrange these as best we can.

More info to follow as we sort things out

We’ve chosen our summer 5K races for 2014.

Some of these will tie in with the newly formed South Wales Running League which we will be taking part in.

Please see the Races page for the latest info.

We will be having a chip butty night after training on Thursday 24th April.  Some members will be cutting the run short to get back in time!!

If we can have a rough idea of numbers prior to Thursday, it would help us get the order placed!!   Thanks !!
