Spring has sprung and it’s Leisure Centre League time. Chepstow are hosting the first race, and after in the bar we’ll be enjoying the presentation of the prizes from the cross-country season. Come and run or cheer, and then bring along some cakes for the party after.
For the first few weeks after the clocks change we tend to use the 3 woods route a lot till the evenings get longer and we can venture further afield. And to introduce more of a training effect, Coach of the Month Sue Ashton will be leading some fartlek surges at points round the woods.
And finally, many members will have fond, or not as the case maybe, memories of the Mynydd Troed fell race in the beautiful Black Mountains. It’s on again this Sunday at 1pm at Pengenffordd on the A40 to Talgarth road. 7 miles/2,700 foot climb and described as ‘flat and fast’ by one of the inmates of the Talgarth Mental Inst. At £3 enter on the day you’d be a loony not to have a run round this scenic course with views of Llangors and the Brecon Beacons.
