On Tuesday it’s off to Cwmbran for the first Leisure Ctre League road race of this year. It’s the usual course from the Oasis Club near Cwmbran station. Meet at the LC at 6.20 ready to be on the road by 6.30.
If you haven’t done an LCL before, they’re always good races with no entry fee or form-filling. Just ask Syd for your permanent LCL race number. You can win points for the Club and for yourself in your age group category.
And after the race, there’ll be a little social get-together with nibbles when the cross-country trophies will be handed out. The Chepstow men’s and women’s teams have trophies to collect, as well as some of our individuals in the age group categories.
A new run on Thursday. You may have read about the new Wales Coast Path that starts in Chepstow and goes right round the whole coast of Wales. We’re going to do just the first few miles through the town, past Newhouse Farm to Mathern, and across St Pierre to the sea wall. Then we’ll return back along the sea wall.
The full run will be about 8 miles, but you can cut across to the coast from Mathern and do about 5 miles.
