There was a problem with the administration on Saturday and the Gwent League apologies for any inconvenience caused as a result.

For further information and to view the full results when they are available, visit the Gwent League website.

We have some lost property from the event that was left in the club tent - contact Kay Chapman if it is yours. Please can you also remember that if you are coming you must tell your team manager as a few athletes arrived unexpectedly.You must also tell your team manager if you are not coming after you have said you would as the club pays for you to enter and this is then money wasted. We have had a few repeat offenders so please be careful. 

The next race in the series will be at Blaise Castle, Bristol on 8th February.
