April 5th, 2016
April training is now up on the training page.
March was a busy month with the closure of the West Glam XC, Cardif World Half Championships and lots of personal challenges going on.
The West Glam XC finished with the ladies staying in the first division in 4th place – a fantastic effort …very few points between the first 4 places in this league. Many congratulations.
The men unfortunately have been relegated to Division 2, although it was only 2 match points that made that difference between staying up and going down. The league seems to be getting tougher each year with more and more clubs and runners joining in.
The Cardiff World Half Champs saw some awful weather this year but many of you braved the crowds and rain to show some excellent times. Well done…if you have a race report you want to show let me know …
The Vale Ultra marathon saw a few of the club members take on the full 32 miler and a few take on the 18.5 miler…a full race report to follow.
Membership is now due. No need to fill out a membership form unless there are any changes to your details. If you can pay via cheque to Andrea or Simon or Bank transfer to club bank account, details went out in emails related to the presentation night at the end of the month.
I will chase up at the end of April, for unpaid members !!
The AGM is being held on the 16th April, details and agenda have been sent out to members. Please try and stay and put forward any ideas you have to make the club better. The committee meet once a month to ensure things tick over, but welcome any suggestions and help on our club.
Finally, get your dancing shoes on for our annual presentation night at the Hi Tide inn at Porthcawl on the 29th April whn a Beatles tribute band is playing. We meet upstairs for the presentation and carry on the party in the main room after awards have been given out.
Remember this year, the championships have been based on age related effort, so everyone is in with a chance !
Good luck in the upcoming marathons and challenges , stay motivated and enjoy the running !
