    A big thank you

    Sheila has written to Chris to pass the following message to all members of the club:

    I wanted to let you and all the members of the running club know how grateful I am for the generous donations you all made to Tes's charity and, of course, for all who took time to come and clebrate with us all on the 25th. It was a sad but wonderful day in many ways.

    I was flabbergasted when the final amount of donations was known. I was able to give £660 to the Air Ambulance and Builth Hospital.

    I trust you are all well and that you will pass on this news to everyone. Hope to see you all sometime.

    Love Sheila.

    Club Weekend October 2009

    You may know that we were considering going to the Lausanne marathon in Switzerland on 25 October this year for a club weekend. However, it has now come to light that this clashes with another race in The Elan Valley this year. Quite a few of our members will either be running this event or helping out so we have decided to put Lausanne off until next year.

    We also thought that with the current euro/sterling exchange rate we would stay in UK this year. We are proposing a club trip to the Great Clarendon Marathon on Sunday 4 October which starts in Salisbury and finishes in Winchester. It is an off raod marathon. There is also a half marathon which starts at the half way mark 90 minutes after the marathon.
    There is a relay race over the marathon course with 4 runners each completing 10.5K approximately.

    Costs are £23 for the marathon and £17 for the half marathon boith including transport to/from the start/finish. The cost of the relay is £11.50 per person.

    I am awaiting further details from the event organiser regarding accommodation and my advices will follow, but for anyone interested please pencil 4 October in your diary.

    The website addreess for the event is www.clarendon-marathon.co.uk.

    Any queries please email Chris

    Hi all,Just a quick reminder that the club runs this Thursday and next Thursday will be at 6.30pm from Llandrindod Wells Lake. If Rhayader based runners could meet at the leisure centre at 6pm as there could be some runners requiring lifts. We have advertised these 2 nights as beginner taster sessions and we're not sure how many will turn up, but there should be enough of us should there be a number of different ability groups.

    Also, the next cross country runs will be Wednesday 18 July at Kinnersley, Wednesday 1 August at Shobden and Wednesday 22 August at Westhope all starting at 7.30. Details are on the board but any queries please contact either myself or Terry. It would be good to put a team out in each race.

    Finally, Stafford is doing some really good work in setting up a club website - watch this space!! Thanks Staff.

    Cheers for now.

    Chris.
