Once again Phil Protheroe ran the Beast of Bryn. Phil completed the 15 mile route in2:12:45. In the past I’ve run the shorter 6.8 mile run and that was hard enough. So running more than twice that distance obviously added more than twice the fun. Well done Phil. The Richard Burton 10k is due to take […]

On the 24th May Nicola Thomas, Steve and Cheryl Gibbins set off from Brecon along the Taff Trail for the Run Walk Crawl 42 mile ultra. Starting at 8am from Theatr Brycheiniog in Brecon the trail makes much use of abandoned branch of the Taff Vale railway and Glamorganshire canal. I’m sure that all the participants took note of the rich […]
Woke up on Saturday to the sound of pitter, patter on the roof of the bedroom. Was it crows collecting ready to attack Hitchcock style, no worse than that it was raining. Struggling from under the covers I managed to get to the window and with dread peeked out. No rain, later I found that […]
