The club is offering one member the opportunity to attend an official LiRF training course to become a qualified coach for the club. Costs associated with the training will be paid by the club, we only ask in return that you genuinely intend to use the qualification for the good of the club.
This will allow you to officially coach both seniors and junior runners. We already have one qualified coach, namely our Chairman and Junior Trainer, Paul Jenkinson. Paul however could always do with a hand with the juniors occasionally. The person attending this will also be well qualified to help out at the other training nights.
If interested please get in touch with Arwel Lewis asap on 07772 302411 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Thanks once again to the faithful few, Eryri, Prestatyn, NWRRC and parents who turned out to assist and make the day go smoothly. This year it was the turn of Colwyn Bay to take the bulk of the medals, again the main star being Michael Roberts breaking his own North Wales record in the U14s, with team mate U12 record holder Holly Roberts winning the U14 girls. The sole Eryri medalist be Caitlin Forrest 2nd in the U10 girls.
Thanks must also go to X-Ray Mineral Services, Sinclair Steel, Mostyn Estates, Conwy Council and the Orme Country Park for allowing us to use such a cracking venue.
