Running at Christmas

Christmas is nearly here. Eat, drink and be merry but don’t forget you are runners.

Jane and I are planning our annual winter social run for Tuesday 27th December. The plan is to meet at the car park at Moel Famau (the first one not the one on the Bwlch). We will run for about an hour so we are back at the car park by about 10.30 for tea and cakes (bring your own). The pace will be fairly gentle so nobody will be left behind. We will stick to the gravel tracks so road shoes will be OK. If you fancy a bit of fun and a chance to run off that extra helping and that extra glass please let Jane or I know or just turn up on 27th.

For info Leighton will be running London Marathon using the club’s place.

A reminder that the next Border League race at Abergele (Pensarn) is on Sunday 8th January.

Best wishes for a very happy Christmas from Rob and Jane.

Cardington Cracker fell race

Another end-0f-season away day, this time to the more familiar hills of Shropshire for the excellent Cardington Cracker. This is 9m, just under 3000ft of climbing, taking in some very steep ascents of The Lawley and Caer Caradog above Church Stretton. But it also includes some good fast downhills and a very fast, long run-in. Another large and strong field, with runners coming from miles around - 291 finishers.
