Compasssport Cup

Well done to everyone who went down to Haytor. We didn't quite have the strength in depth to beat Sarum (they had 40 running) but came a creditable 2nd. Congratulations to Clare, Clem and Quinlan who won their trophy classes.

JK 2014



NEW - SWOC will subsidise relay entries but teams need to be decided soon.

The JK relays will be held on Monday 21st April on Pwll Ddu - being so local this is a great opportunity to take part and to encourage participation the club is offering members subsidised entries (£7 per senior discount)- but please register your interest as soon as possible with Jayne Bush so she can enter the teams before the fees increase significantly on 17th February.

Relay day details

As most of you know by now JK2014 is in S Wales next year using the best of the SWOC areas. For those of you who like to plan ahead and save money entries open on 1st Nov. http://www.thejk.org.uk/jk2014/
