It’s hard work training in the weather we’ve been having lately, but for those preparing for this month’s main event, the Anglesey Half Marathon, we hope you’ve got the miles in and are ready to tackle the route from Menai Bridge to Beaumaris and back next weekend (5th March). This year, for the first time, the organiser’s are also holding a 10k race alongside the half, and this has proven so popular, it sold out weeks ago.
In addition to the Anglesey Half, Sunday also sees the fourth race in the Borders League series, this time hosted by Helsby RC. The race will be held at Manley Mere (WA6 0PE) and the route is about 5.1 miles of country lanes. Due to the clash with the Half, there won’t be a club mini bus for this race, but check Facebook as there may be a car share arranged.
Other races this month include the Loggerheads Trail race and the new Conwy Mountain Fell Race on Saturday 11th (head for heights required for Conwy!), Wrexham Marathon and the Waunfawr 5k on the 12th, and on the 19th, the Llandyrnog 10k and the Resolution Run Cymru, a new charity 5k at Newborough Forest.
Club runs this month are Holyhead (1st), Menai Bridge (8th), Llangefni (15th), Holyhead (22nd) and Menai Bridge (29th) all starting at 7pm. In addition, our Speed/Tempo sessions continue every Monday at 6:30pm from Ysgol Gyfun Llangefni. Some club members have also started making Sunday morning long runs at Newborough forest a regular thing. Keep an eye on Facebook for details.
