Group 3 notice now may is upon us and we will all be complaining that it is too hot to run . We will be running off road ( fields , paths , tracks ) for the next few months . Please wear footwear to suit thank you(message will expire on Mon 10/Sep/2018).

The idea is to begin the knockout in June / early July . Ties can be completed at any parkrun but preference is for hynburn . In theory every member who enters will have an equal chance of winning . Can members who wish to be involved either put an announcement on here or add your name when this message is transferred to Facebook . Ideally we would require a minimum of32 so come on members give it a go(message will expire on Wed 30/May/2018).

5. Message posted by Liam Moden on Tue 01/May/2018.

As a club we are going to try to introduce a parkrun based 5k handicap knockout competition. The premise being each entrant is given a rating by graham . For example purposes only - graham 20.00 minutes Dave savage 22.00 Pam mccullagh 27.30 . So if Pam raced graham she would receive 7.30 mins . Pam v Dave Pam would receive 5.30 minutes . Dave v graham Dave would receive 2 mins ( please read next announcement )(message will expire on Wed 30/May/2018).

6. Message posted by Liam Moden on Tue 01/May/2018.

Race the train

Kay enjoys herself!

Every August we have a camping weekend in Wales (tent or caravan). This also includes "racing trains".

We are referring to "Race the Train" event which is a unique race that covers a 14 mile "multi terrain" route alongside the Talyllyn Railway on its journey to Abergynolwyn with runners trying to beat the train. The event regularly attracts over 1000 runners including many from abroad.

The race is classed as one of the top 10 "must do" events in the UK by "Runners World".

Spectators are welcome and can enjoy watching the race by travelling on the train and shouting encouragement as it passes the runners.

There are alternative races 10K or 5 mile race for those that don't fancy the full distance and also children's races. Everyone welcome family (children) and friends.

The event is followed by a fantastic presentation and entertainment in a large marquee in the grounds of the school. Great music, good company.

This was introduced to our club by Peter Blackledge, he has completed in this race since 2001.

With the race being on Saturday you have the choice to travel on the day of the race or stay over on Friday night. You will need to enter the race yourself but we provisionally booked a number of pitches at a campsite. If you would like us to book you a "pitch" please let us know your requirements, number of nights and how many tents etc.
