The Week Ahead 9 April 2018

On Tuesday we hie ourselves to Chepstow Park Wood for the first of this year’s Club Handicap Events. Details have been posted by Organiser Mike on the Blog before this one.
Thursday’s Run is along the Wye Valley Walk from the Leis Centre. Please continue to wear your hi-vis top for returning along the roads while dusk is still quite early.
The alternative 45 minute run together for beginners/slower runners is led this Thursday by Julia. Hi-vis of course also essential.
And finally - we’re staging the renowned Offa’s Orror on Sunday. All the best to helpers and runners.

2018 Handicap Update #3

You may or may not know, but or Club is trying to be more sustainable and environmentally friendly. To help with this aim, we WON'T be supplying cardboard cups for the hot drinks on this years Handicap races, we will be supplying the hot drinks, so if you want one, please bring along your own cup/mug.

We will have cups for the water, as we already have them, but take it from me, they are no good for hot drinks.

The Handicapper.

2018 Handicap Update #2

If you didn't do the February Club Champs race(s), you haven't got a handicap time yet, if you want one, let me know either a time you can run the Handicap course in, or the name of a person roughly the same pace as you who has got a handicap time, and I'll put you down with them. With either of these methods, please be aware you can't "win" this race. The email address to let me know is

Please could I ask for helpers if you don't intend to run, for the people who have already offered to help, you don't need to contact me again. Jobs include give out/take back race numbers, runner start/finish/herders, car parking. For all helpers, please could you be at Chepstow Park Woods at 18:30.

As parking is always difficult, if you can share lifts that would be a great help, thank you in advance.

Daphne's going off earlier as we want her to be part of the "race", and allow later runners to finish earlier in the evening, all other runners handicaps are calculated from 19:00.

I've still had no one come forward to take over the Handicap Series when I finish in May this year.

The Week Ahead 1 April 2018

Back on the Leisure Ctre field on Tuesday now Spring is here😀 If the track hasn’t been marked out, we’ll flag out a 400 metre circuit for a Paarlauf session led by James. So think about who you’re going to pair up with.
With daylight being in such short supply at the moment we’ll meet up on the field. Start warming up before 7, so we can make a prompt start.
Thursday’s run is the Three Woods. Still need to wear hi-viz as we’ll be on the roads towards the end.
And Niki will be leading the 45 minute together run.
