Sunday sees the 2016 running of the Virgin London Marathon – so good luck to all those who are running in the main race.
Good luck also to Isobel Dodd who will again represent Wales, Bridgend AC, Brynteg C.S. and Welsh Schools Athletics when she competes in the London Marathon Mini Marathon. Isobel’s 5th International representation of the year will be run over the last 3 miles of the London Marathon Course in a Welsh Schools Athletics International Team competing against 300 of the top UK runners. It will be Isobel’s 3rd appearance in this race.
Apologies to any other Mini Marathon runners I may have missed off this update
Porthcawl is but one of the growing number of parkruns contributing to a real growth in social running, which in turn is leading to increased attendance at races and at running clubs alike.
Steve Brace has put together a great set of statistics (as a PDF file) to show just how the Porthcawl run is playing its part in the success of parkrun (warning though – its a 9MB file)
Hi there all – please see the following email from Martin Bell – the race walker who has been kind enough to provide training sessions to our Juniors on a regular basis…
I’m please to announce that thanks to Welsh Athletics I’m able to put on a coaching workshop on the basics of coaching race walking. The aim is to provide coaches with the confidence to coach youngsters in the basics of the event, so that they can compete in the Welsh Young Athletes League.
The Workshop will be held on Saturday 16 April, at the track in Swansea, starting in the indoor center, but weather permitting moving on to the outdoor track. The start time is 1pm and the workshop will last for approximately 2 hrs.
It will be practical based so can all who attend please come suitably dressed to take part, both as coaches and athletes.
The workshop is open to all qualified coaches and teachers and is free.
Please use the email links to contact Martin or Neil directly for more information if required.
