What’s on in January:
The Cybi Monday Night Training kicks off the New Year on the 9th January at 6:30 in Llangefni and the usual Wednesday night social/steady paced runs (depending on how you feel) start in Menai Bridge on the 4th, with Llangefni the following week and Holyhead after that.
Despite the cold weather, January is a busy month for racing. On 14th is the X-country league race in Shrewsbury, with the popular Helsby Four Villages Half Marathon the next day on the 15th, this being a chance for Spring Marathoners to gauge their post Christmas fitness. On the 21st is the tough but stunningly scenic Winter Trail Half in Coed Y Brenin, Dolgellau and on the same day, the less gruelling, but fast paced Twin Piers 10k in Colwyn Bay where, if the weather is on side, there’s a chance of a PB (if you haven’t eaten too much turkey and chocolates over the holidays!) Finishing off the month of racing on the 22nd is the Borders League race staged by Deeside AAC.
For both the Borders and X-country races, please keep an eye on Facebook for any Club travel arrangements, and for an up to date list of all events, check out the Events page on the Cybi Striders web site http://cybistriders.co.uk/cal
