Please note: you will need to have some fell running experience, a basic understanding as to how to use a compass and, as there will be a series of practical sessions in the hills, suitable kit/ equipment for fell running (including a compass!).
It is hoped that a North Wales Course will be arranged in the future.

The club committee have agreed to submit an entry into the prestigious Welsh Castles Relay, this year taking place on the 7th and 8th June.
The Relay is a 20 stage relay event travelling between Caernarfon and Cardiff Castle. There are open, ladies and veteran categories.
So we need 20 runners for 20 stages. It would also be fantastic if we could put together a ladies team, after all we are a big enough club and should be able to do it.
The stages involve hilly road and mountain sections.
Anyone interested please get in touch with Arwel Lewis on 07772 671202 or email@example.com or see the below details and website.
