Lastly, and more details to follow on this, but just a reminder that I won’t be standing for re-election at this year’s annual general meeting, so if you are interested in taking on this great role on the committee (I’ve really enjoyed it!), just drop me a line for more info, very happy to help and it will be easier this season as no home fixture to organise  Cheers, Becki Law (

Preseli Beast and Race to the Tower

Preseli Beast and Race to the Tower

A bit delayed but a few fantastic performances to report on from Alwyn Oliver, Maggie Oliver and Judith Leslie!

On 12th May, Alwyn tackled the Preseli Beast in North Pembrokeshire in 6h1m32s – amazing going considering the Beast is 24 off-road miles, with approx 4,700 ft. (1420 m) of assent. He was the only V70 – fantastic running Alwyn!

In another beast of an event on 9/10th June, Judith Leslie and Maggie Oliver conquered the Race to the Tower event in the Cotswolds, a double/ultramarathon event, also raising over £600 (so far) for St David’s Hospice! Here is the JustGiving page:
