RTT, Cilcain and diary update.

Just got back from race the Train. Excellent events (the 30th!) and a record field of well over 900. Paul Stinton did 1.46 and beat the train. Jane did 2.05 taking 10 minutes off last years time and I did 2.31 taking 5 minutes off last year. Weather was appalling; wet with a strong headwind coming back down the valley. But it cleared up and we were able to have an excellent BBQ afterwards.

Good turn-out of Buckley Runners at Cilcain on Monday for the Moel Famau Mountain Race. Tough going in hot, humid conditions; made even this fairly short race hard going "felt like I was dragging a tyre up the hill" were the words of one club member. Me - I just finished - not felt so drained at the end of a race for along time. Results will be on http://www.cilcainshow.org.uk
Please see below my latest effort at a diary of events. It includes Cross Country and Borders League dates plus I have added links to races where I can. Please note the change of date for Helena Tipping (From 1st December to a provisional date of March 30th.
Next pub night is September 3rd (8.30 in Running Hare)
Can I just remind anybody who has not paid their subs that it would be a really good idea to do it soon. Cross Country and Borders League seasons start soon and you can’t run in them if you haven’t paid. (two cheques to Jack please, £10 payable to Buckley Runners and £15 payable to Welsh Athletics)
Just a reminder – we have a Twitter account (@buckleyrunners), you can find us on Facebook
