The Week Ahead 26 August 2013

Tuesday's session, introduced by MC Niki Morgan and delivered by Coach Andy Meek-Welsh, will be a variation of the popular Up-the-Clock, known as Progressive Intervals. Sounds intriguing.
MC Bram Fischer offers a choice on Thursday of the Three Woods run OR the Pyramid and Molehill track session. Andy explains that a Molehill isn't as steep as a Pyramid giving runners a chance to vary the session to suit their needs.

It's the last race in the LCL series on Tuesday, organised by the Monmouth club from the Lion Inn at Trellech, 7.30 pm. Parking is very tight there so we need to share cars, meeting at our LC at 6.30.
Chris Rees is MC on Thursday and gives us a choice of a run along the Gloucestershire Way or a track session of 6 or 8 x 600m.

East Wales Champs 2013

Advance Notice - Members may have noticed that there isn't an E Wales Road Race series this year.
BUT - a demand for some sort of championship has been identified, and so the Elan Valley 10 on Sat 23 November will incorporate the EW Championship.
Medals will be awarded for the first three in each category: Senior Men; M40-49; M50-59: M60-69; M70+; Senior Women: F35-44; F45-54; F55- 64: F65+ (age on day of race).
This is a well organised 10 miler based at a pleasant outdoor centre, with a fast downhill first mile, followed by a stiff uphill, and lots of undulations on quiet country lanes. And the presentation will be in a cosy, warm cafeteria.

The Week Ahead 5 August 2013

Tuesday's MC Lou Summers introduces Coach Andy Meek-Welsh who in turn introduces a brand new track session "The Mile Cutdown". Will we have to wait till Tues night to find out what it's all about?
On Thursday it's Vanessa Lawson who sets us off on the Wales Coast Path. What larks!
The weekend sees us at the far end of the Offa's Dyke path on Friday morning setting off on the first stage of the Offa's Dyke relay. Not too late to join in: organiser Gerry will be delighted if you contact him now and put your name down for one or more of the stages on Friday, Saturday, Sunday. The weekend ends with a BBQ at the end of the trail at Sedbury cliffs. If it's all you can do, then at least join in the last leg from Tutshill's Mopla Road starting at 4.56.

Llanthony Show 2013 Fell Race Report and Results



Llanthony Show Hill Race 2013
A record turn-out of 57 runners enjoyed a cool showery start between rounds of the gymkhana in the show’s arena. There were wet spots at points on the course following heavy overnight electrical storms, but otherwise the going was firm and fast.
The event had been nominated by Chepstow Harriers as its club championship and members and families travelled up to the Vale of Ewyas in numbers. Their runners made up over a third of the field and duly provided the winners Paul Murrin and Samantha Harris, as well as two of the age category winners Teresa Tranter and Niki Morgan.
At the sharp end Paul had an initial tussle with Jon Barnes but gradually drew away on the long climb to the Offa’s Dyke ridge and the English border, finishing just 15 seconds outside the record. Sam Harris beat hubby Steve to the ridge and completed a rare outing on the fells with a time just 17 seconds short of the record. Less than a minute behind, two other Chepstowites tussled for second: Judith Austerberry, also not a regular on the hills, finally prevailing over fell specialist Niki Morgan.
Stuart Moore, Pete Gardner, Dai Smout and Sharon Woods completed the age group winners’ roster, while C J Jones and Aderyn Carter took the Junior race honours.
