The fourth of five LCL summer races on Tuesday with the journey up the Valleys to Parc Penallta, an interesting off-road course with mainly tarmac, concrete and gravel underfoot.
Meet at LC at 6. Head for Ystrad Mynach and follow signs to Tredomen Business Centre cf82 7fn where toilets will be available.
MC Jane Bayliss introduces August's Coach Andy Meek-Welsh with a choice of the 3 Woods Run or a repeat of the newly popular Paarlauf session on the track. Find a partner of about the same ability, start on opposite sides of the track and take it in turns to run the 200 metres to each other, with a jog back to your start place each time. Great fun!
And finally, the August Club Champs on Saturday is the Llanthony Show Hill Race. 3.5 miles with the climb up to Offa's Dyke ridge, a nice run along the ridge, and the exhilarating swoop to the finish in the show arena. Entry free on the day (start soon after 12.15), just the show entry price, a shortened hill race for older children and a great day for all the family. Kids and adult races in the arena, and all the usual country show attractions.
