The Nos Galan Races commemorate the Welsh runner Guto Nyth Bran and his legendary athletic prowess. Held annually on New Year’s Eve in Mountain Ash, in the Cynon Valley, South Wales, the Adults' and Childrens' Races follow a route around the town.
Each year a famous sports personality, whose identity is kept secret until the night, takes part in the races - and this year will be no exception.
To take part in this year's Nos Galan Road Races, you can do so by applying online today or register in person on the day.
14.4Km Riverbank Rollick Race in the Championship.
A key race on in your new year race calender and who would want to miss this race, the new Dozen course has been well recived over the last two years, with less road, more trail, open country, mud, more mud and solid rock and of course the precipice. Still one of the toughest races around.
The Riverbank Rollick is 9 miles long with 120m of ascent and is 90 per cent off-road, mainly on trails and across fields. It starts at the Pithay near St Mary’s Church, Thornbury and goes out to St Arilda’s Church at Oldbury, down to the scenic Severn Riverbank and along the estuary for about 1.5 miles with views of the Bridge and Chepstow, then back through the village of Littleton and over Thornbury Golf course to return to the Playing Fields. The final 2014 route will be very similar to the previous year, subject to minor footpath changes.
Well, the Sodbury Slog was yesterday. I booked it months ago and largely forgot about this 10K race through muddy fields. James wasn't running at the time that I booked it, so I was to go it alone. Two weeks ago, I re-checked things and it turned out to be 9.5 miles and sold out, much to James' annoyance. Luckilly for James, Simon "Gilly" Gill had an attack of the man-flu last week and bailed on Friday. Keith James initially got the place, but suddenly realised that he had something else on that day (clearly the 9.5 miles was not worth getting out of bed for), and James stepped up.
I have a few goals for 2013. One of them is unique to me - to run the Cardiff Half without requiring a knee operation afterwards. The previous two years have seen me experiencing issues, not necessarily caused by running, but I've followed the same pattern of injury during August, Cardiff Half in October, surgery in December. Not recommended.
