Membership fees

Despite the name, the club participates in all disciplines of running, fell, cross country and road and welcomes applications from runners of all abilities to join us. If you are not sure if the club is for you, why not come to one of our training sessions or one of our regular pub runs. You will be under no obligation to join, but you will get a feel for the club and a better idea if the club is for you. You can merely turn up to a training session unannounced, but it would be better if you contacted our club secretary first (details on the contacts page) and let him know that you will be coming and he will make sure that whoever is leading the group will look out for you. If you are an absolute beginner to running, you too are most welcome to join us in one of our sessions, but please contact our secretary first and he will make sure that you will have a programme with which you are comfortable.

Ras Yr Aran Race - 22 March 2014

The early warm start to March became a distant memory to contestants in this 10 miles / 3100 ft race.  The race organizer agonized about the conditions and in the end decided to shorten the route slightly.  However, the runners still had to contend with freezing pools and and deep peat bog on the snow free lower section, whilst on the higher ground, the snow gradually increased to 8 inches, with extremely poor visibility at the turn around at Llyn Aran Benllyn.

The race was won by Felipe Jones of Aberystwyth AC 1:06:46. 
Richard TreitlI finished 68th in 1:49:07 and described it as a challenging race where full kit/head count was strictly enforced, but where, in reality, most people had the majority of their 'emergency' kit on.
