Dash in the daylight

The Clwydian Range Runners are pleased to announce that a brand new, permanent, fully way marked running route has been installed at Llandegla forest. There are two 10km routes (red & blue) and although parts of them are the same they differ in terms of the experience and ability required of the runner. The Clwydian Range Runners have been working on this for just over 12 months now and as a way of thanking the people involved we are hosting an opening race around the course. The date is Saturday 20th February 2016 Registration between 09:30 – 10:30 for an 11am race start Cost will be £5
Kit: due to us not being able to forecast the weather in February, which can be hit and miss from year to year, we will be expecting runners to have waterproof or windproof jacket, Hat & Gloves.
There will be the usual prize giving and thank you’s afterwards and the center, as many of you know, serves great hot and cold drinks, cakes and light meals.
Please see the attached poster.
PS. Feel free to go and have a run around the route beforehand, it’s open to the public now!
Many thanks,Gareth Jaggard CRR

Keswick Mountain Festival

Eryri are hoping to get a team together to enter the Keswick Mountain Festival Trail races in May 2016. We need a mixed team of at least 6 members spread over the 4 different races, these are 5K, 10K, 25K & a 50K Ultra (2,000 metres of ascent). The races are held on Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd May, full details on the Keswick Mountain Festival Web-site Entry includes T. Shirt, Pasta Party & Concert Ticket with many other Festival attractions available it’s a great weekend up in The Lakes & lets face it they could do with some support after the recent floods. Anyone interested please contact Paul Hodges at paul.hodges@hotmail.co.uk who will co-ordinate our team entries. He’s in the 25K but that doesn’t stop you opting for that distance too, this will be his 4th year in this race so clearly he loves the route! Hopefully we can sort out some pooled transport.
