Bridgend AC

Club Clean!

beach-trash-coloring-pages-ecolubecentercom-home-o-o-tattoodonkey-com_Hi there all – please come along to the club on Sunday the 13th of September from 10 o’clock to help us give the club a tidy up. We have organised a skip for all the stuff we need to throw. We need a few bodies to help stuff stuff into bin bags and carry out side. Shouldn’t take too  long we hope – the more bodies – the quicker we can get it done.

For those at the Junior park run – why not stay on for a hour or so and give a helping hand?

Its your club – so pleas help us keep it tidy!

Kenfig Dunes 5km – tomorrow @ 7pm

If you have not heard, but our clubs keen runner/triathlete David Carrington (Kenfig Reserve Manager) and James Marks of Cornelly Striders have been discussing a trial 5km run event on the Dunes from the Kenfig Reserve Centre on Wednesday 26th August at 7pm. It has been offered out to the 5 running clubs in Bridgend County namely, Brackla Harriers, Bridgend AC, Cornelly Striders, Cwm Ogwr Runners and Porthcawl Runners and an inter Club Challenge has been formed? With 15 to score or as many as we have. Club vests to be worn and numbers issued from the centre up to 5 minutes before the start! There is ample caring in front of the centre (postcode CF33 4PT).

This year it will be a 5km run from the centre to Sker and back, which will consist of sand, grass paths and a bit of road. Feel free to incorporate into a longer run before or after if you wish. James will be in a  lead vehicle on a quad bike and marshals/first aid will be provided by the Sker Beach Lifeguards. There will be a cup of tea/coffee and a couple of awards following the run back at the centre. There will be a £2 charge per runner (entry on the night only) to cover the cost of opening the centre/teas/prizes. This run is primarily aimed as a social event to trial, to see if it becomes an annual event following feedback from clubs/runners.
