Lliswerry 8 - Course Change for 2018

Welcome to the 33rd consecutive year of the iconic Lliswerry 8 race.
It's been a challenge keeping this great road race alive while many similar races have been withdrawn from the calendar due to the substantial amount of organisation involved.
Having once again experienced considerable demand for the race, far outstripping our maximum number of places and having weathered the storm of bringing down a second entry system we thought that our main challenges were behind us. Not quite!

A fantastic debut performance by Lliswerry Ladies at the National Road Relays.

Following Lliswerry Ladies impressive silver medal winning performance at the Welsh Road Relays in September (Sandra Chipper, Antoinette Dumayne, Emma Wookey, Nicky Collin) qualification for the National Relays was secured.  Due to other racing commitments, a substituted team made the trip to Birmingham for the prestigious ERRA National Road Relays on the 7th October 2017.

Lliswerry Runners Statement

We have been informed by Runners World that through an error in their on-line entry system, our 2017 race has been significantly oversubscribed over & above what we consider to be a safe maximum. This has brought a massive burden of work and stress to the race organising team who have been considering the "least worse" option in the situation. Clearly we could simply cancel all entries and restart the whole process, but this would be unfair to the entrants who successfully applied during the early hours of Thursday morning.
