Good news, after re-checking the RVR calendar we are pleased to announce the introduction of a new race this year in the 10mile category. This race will replace the cancelled San Dom 10 and will take us back to 4 races as originally planned. This race is scheduled to take place on Sunday the 9th of September 2018
Please be aware that due to road closures, we are changing the pack run route this week (Wednesday 11/04/2018) Please see group leaders or committee members, for changes before running.
Due to the cancellation of the San Dom 10mile this year, it has been decided to not add an additional 10mile race to the club championship calendar this year. There are still two 10mile races out-standing. Please see the Club Championship page for details of races.
We will be looking to try and arrange transport for the Swansea (26th June 2018) and Cardiff (7th October 2018) Half Marathons
25th April, 27th June, 22nd August, 31st October, 19th December
Its that time of year again, where we reflect and celebrate the achievements of the Rhondda Valley Runners for 2017.
This is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to chat, eat, drink and even bust some moves with your fellow members. Waste no time and snap up your tickets now, you never know there could be a trophy with your name on it.
