Friday evening on July 6th saw the 7th annual Cwmann 5 race held from the local ganolfan and was, as usual, well supported by both locals and club affiliated athletes.

June-July Race Report

A succession of successful races for Team Sarn Helen over June and July has resulted in some big personal bests, top class places and even some outright wins. Our Ironman extraordinaire, Gareth Hodgson has epitomised these three points whilst competing at three separate events across the UK.

Felinfach 6 Mile Race

Friday 29th June was a particularly warm night for running however that did nothing to deter the competitors that came along to participate in Sarn Helen Running Clubs fifth event of the year, the Felinfach 6, which was hosted at the local primary school.

May-June Race Report

Ras Y Hafod, an annual event held around the majestically grounds of Hafod estate, was well attended by Sarn Helen Running club on Wednesday 9th May with juniors and seniors taking home some bling. The all off road and somewhat technical secondary school event was won outright by Sarns Gwion Payne and the first girl home was our very own Alaw Jones. The 10k adults race was just as well attended by the dreaded midges but they seemed to impact little on the Sarn Helen performances. We placed 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4rd overall with Felipe Jones 40:37, Dylan Lewis 40:51, Gareth Payne 42:51 and Andrew Poole 45:05. Aled Sion Jones placed 7th overall in 47:46 with Dee Jolly next to cross the line in 48:02, 1st lady. Eilir Evans made his Sarn Helen debut in a strong time of 49:36 while Tony Hall placed 1st M60 in 53:55 and Mick Taylor 1st M50 in 55:30.

Ras Y Llychau

Friday 25th May was a day of temperamental showers and gloomy winds, that was until 6pm and the race preparations, warm ups and registration started for the annual Ras Y Llychau began. Sarn Helen member and event organiser David Thomas always seems to please the weather gods and year after year glorious weather is a given; the skies cleared and the roads dried up just in time for the fiercely fast and competitive kids race to start.
