September has been a good month for the club! We have had several excellent training nights with strong numbers of runners turning out regularly, all kitted out with the mandatory hi-vis for the dark nights. Training nights have been good fun but some really hard runs too.
Several new members have been running with us at the club. Its always good to see new faces (or should it be legs?)!
Some fine results in races such as two Welsh champions on the fells (Steve and John) and winning the team prize at Sutton.
October brings the busy season.
