Parkrun Cardiff 5th January 2019 Sunday 6 January 2019

A new womens Parkrun UK record time of 15.50 was achieved by Cardiff's Charlotte Arter in finishing 2nd overall, only beaten by 1 second to a SM, 903 finished the race. Went to watch race to support runner am coaching, and give a support shout to other Cardiff and runners seen passing me in race. Due to numbers in race it was difficult to spot Cardiff runners who wore all sorts of tops.

A leading group of men and Charlotte shot past me by the weir about 1km from start, they were really going fast, with Charlotte tucked in with them. Following my support at weir, once field thinned out, walked to point, just before 400m from finish. Got a good view of runners running past house up towards me. Charlotte breathing hard was running alongside 1 man, watched they passed 400m point, just before they got out of sight around a bend, could see Charlotte opening up a short lead.

Gwent League Bryn Bach Parc Monday 31 December 2018

Blaise Castle XC 2012

Apologies for delay in posts in December. Unfortunately went down with a virus in mid November, that was not pleasant, as others have found, it's hard to fully shake off. There has been other reasons, but enough of reasons why.

Reporting on the third Gwent League at Bryn Bach Parc, held on Sunday 2nd December, didin't attend re above. However feed back and checking the site details, a number of issues occurred. There is a lake with a building on far side, that entries were taken. Fine, as long as no late entries turn up. The tent village on the near side of lake, with the course 400m further away, going up a hill to get there. Thus logistics were an issue, the course, was isolated from tents and race, entries centre. Poor weather didn't help on the day, with a cold wind and rain showers. First Aid was there, but not seen on course.

Cardiff runner Millie Gold (Novice Girls) had a serious foot injury during race, finished race, but needed to be carried 400m down hill to tent. The injury, split open her toe that required stitches. However it was hours before she could leave Bryn Bach Parc.

Ciaran Lewis 2013

The second Gwent League was held in Pembrey Park last Saturday. After the awful weather there last month with Welsh RR's, it was better, allthough we experienced very heavy rain showers driven by a srong wind until 1pm. The course surface was firm underfoot, with sand on course, flattened by the heavy rain showers, making it easier to run over for the runners.

In the senior men's race, 410 starters, 405 finished. Cardiff's Ciaran Lewis was a clear winner winning by 17secs, at finish, Ciaran said, that was tough, course was testing with a series of hills around the 5km large lap. As other Cardiff runners finished, they made same comment. Besides the hills it was the strong wind that all experience around the course and into the finishing straight. Stephen Morris 7th with Jake Smith 9th. Our final 2 runners making a team score James Chambers 130th and Paul Edwards 349th. After 2 meetings our senior men's team is overall in 12th place.
