The West Glam XC begins just as the BCRL ends so there’s never a dull moment if you like competition!
The first race is right on the coast of Llanmadoc and true trail / cross country! Then it’s onto the mighty sand dunes of Kenfig Nature reserve and just to make sure you really enjoy it – have two laps of the ‘sea view’ loop! There’s a little break in December, although maybe we need it to help keep us focussed and away from the idea that there’s no harm in consuming every single morsel of food that passes our eyes? If off road is not your favourite, then a couple of laps around a reservoir should help encourage you along. We’ve even had ‘road racers’ turn up to this one. But you don’t want to get bored and it’s soon time for Margam. A super skin cleanse and detox awaits (okay, it’s a mud bath, we’re not going to lie, but it’s probably good for your skin. And the truffles help you forget that your once white socks are now a shade of unidentified hue). This time we end with the Gnoll – oh how the people cheer when they hear of two laps, or is it one? It all depends on who you are! It was probably moved to the end due to so many people feigning injury fears before Snowdon Marathon! What will the excuse be now?
So get the trail daps out, bang off the old dirt to make way for the new.
Dates for the 2019/ 20 league are now out and information can be found on the respective pages. Captains Jennet and Gareth will undoubtedly be coaxing and luring you to the start line with promises of truffles and… actually Gareth, what are you offering?
