Abercych 10km 2019 Vote

Abercych 10k was suggested as a replacement for the two Llys y Fran races and the Cardigan Mayor's 10k which will not take place this year. The race is a flat / slightly undulating out and back along country lanes alongside the River Cych. The start is at 7:30 pm on Thursday 27th June from The Nag's Head. Travel times by car are approx 44 mins from Haverfordwest and 55 mins from Pembroke.

It was discussed to hold separate meetings of the two training groups to agree on alternative races for the 2019 Club Championships. The meeting in Haverfordwest took place on 20th March, with suggestions shared with Pembroke side on 28th March. However, due to a misunderstanding, the meeting didn't take place Pembroke side and has not been arranged since. For fairness, an online vote was held, which closed on Sunday 9th June. The results and comments are as follows:Forms response chart. Question title: Include?. Number of responses: 39 responses.

Comments and alternative race suggestions received:

  1. silver valley 10k. closer. sunday. bit of everything off road, hills, roads, quarry. not sure if meets standards though and we need to keep local races going.
  2. I think all the qualifying races should be determined prior to the first event. Ideally by having a meeting for all members. Possibly a road runners AGM.
  3. Two suggestions either the new Trots 10 miler (held last weekend, so a bit late for this year) or the Llandeilo 3 peaks ( again last weekend, so also too late for this year) both race must comply with standards above if accepted.
  4. Changes or new races need to be decided and voted upon before commencing champion runs not after it has started.
  5. Sarn helen 9miler. Silver valley 10k. Ras beca
  6. There are plenty of other events closer to home in the race calendar, either on the Harriers website or on Roland’s site to choose from.
  7. Not against the race for next year, but should be discussed at a proper meeting before races start.
