We have received much praise and appreciation for our XC event from today's participants.
Well done team Fairwater; especially Daryll Barnby & Richard Lloyd for finding and designing this course.
Great team effort from all Fairwater-Cwmbran-Runners today with marking course, marshalling and cleaning up at the end etc.

Everyone at Fairwater Runners Cwmbran would like to pass on our condolences to Graham Skokes at this very hard time. Sadly Ernie his father has passed away and will be deeply missed by all who knew him. Ernie was much loved by everyone he met as he was one of life’s true gents and the best baritone this side of the Atlantic.
All our love and rest in peace Ernie and we’ll keep an I on Graham for you.
For those of you who are GPS'd I have now created a Fairwater Runners Cwmbran Strava club page. Roger, can we add it as a widget? Follow this link to get to the correct part of the Strava site. You will need a Strava account if you haven't already got one. Strava is pretty simple to use and a nice little way to make your training competitive even when you are running on your lonesome.
Fairwater Runners Cwmbran are delighted to unveil their newest signing. Chris "The Sparrow" White has long been a target for the Cwmbran Stadium based club, but despite their overtures in the past White had remained apprehensive. However, in recent weeks closed discussions between White, his advisors and Fairwater have been productive giving rise to todays news.
*Warning: Winter interval training will commence on Tuesday 17th September. Don't forget regular speed work is an integral part of any competitive training plan. Last year's winter speed work laid the foundation to another successful XC season and marathon campaign, whereby Fairwater made up the large scoring components of the gold medal winning East Wales team at the Welsh Inter-Regionals, a Fairwater team bronze at the Welsh XC Champs, 1,2,3,4,&; 5 at the Rhayader 20.
