February 2017 Newsletter

The New Year kicked off as usual with a run. Our friends Cornelly Striders put on a great event at Prince of Wales, Kenfig New Years Day Run, which was the final event of the Festive Four series of races. Club interest this year focused on the most improved runner in the series, as new member Hywel Dafydd had hit a rich vein of form, which saw him win the Club Santa Handicap mile race.
The picture this month shows the hardcore of members that braved the Tata Reservoir Run on 8th Jan.
By the time you read this our Couch to 5k runners will be well into their training programme to get them ready for the Porthcawl Parkrun, which is rapidly swelling in numbers. We wish them well on their noble quest.
Momentum is gathering, with a real buzz at training nights, as members plan a series of spring and summer events together and plan to compete as a team in the West Glam Cross Country, Bridgend Summer League and Rack Raid Relay. With plenty to offer adults new to running and walking too, why not join us on Mondays and Wednesdays at 6.30pm from Porthcawl Rugby Club.
