Emma Wins Welsh 10k Championship!

On 22nd June 2014, Emma Wookey achieved her most high profile success by winning the Welsh 10k Championship at the Caerphilly 10k. The win is not only fully deserved for an amazing and modest talent but also brings so much appreciation and pride from her club mates seeing the maroon & white vest finish first in such a high profile race. Although only created in the last few years this race has become a great favourite in Wales for its organisation and its support from the local council.

Would you like to start running or do you know somebody who would like to? 

Lliswerry Runners & our friends at Caerleon Running Club have joined forces to be able to offer a "Couch to 5k" programme which builds up to completing a 5km (3 miles) run gently over 9 weeks. The programme will start in July, with an introductary session at Tredegar House on Saturday 5th July, meeting at 0830. We will just walk the course of the weekly Newport parkrun as a taster. 

It's free of charge and there is no obligation to join either or any club. We just want to get more people running and enjoying the health benefits, personal confidence and fun that running in company offers. You will be coached by UK Athletics Qualified Leaders in Running Fiteness and Coaches in Running Fitness, who are always happy to give you advice about training, shoes, clothing etc.

Please don't worry about your standard of fitness. We will take you through a programme which is approved by the NHS. However, if you have existing medical conditions and are unsure if you are able to join, then please obtain advice from your GP to be on the safe side.
