Swansea Bay 10k

Swansea Bay 10k Sunday 22nd Sept: Based on the level of interest within the club we have booked a 49 seater coach for the eigth consecutive year. We currently have 30 names on the poster on the club notice board so still plenty of space available for those still undecided about the trip.

Wye Valley Runners subsidise the cost of the coach and fees are usually held at £5 per person. This is excellent value..

Following the race we will stop at the Bar Gallois in Port Talbot a very popular venue where we were able to obtain a three course meal for  £13.

 The race is a great opportunity to experience a big race atmosphere with a field of 3000/4000 runners including some elite Kenyan runners. The course is flat and fast with last year’s trip recording 13 pbs for the 10k distance.

You can enter the race on line using the Swansea Bay 10k web site. Race fees are £14.50 for affiliated runners and all finishers receieve a T-shirt, medal and sizeable goody bag. Still got some of last years Tres Semme Shampoo & Conditioner.

For the first time I will not be travelling down on the coach because I hope to complete the Gower Olympic Triathlon on the Saturday . If I survive I will join you all for 10k and meal at Bar Gallois. It will be just a very gentle jog around the course for me on Sunday. Ralph Lloyd as kindly offered to help organise the coach in my absence.

It really is a fun event and a great way to get to know other club members. I hear that now Phil Smith is retired we can look forward to a bumper quiz , wouldn’t miss it for the world!!!
