Vet Mens Winter Races
To : All Veteran Men From : Mike Mewse. Vet Men Team Manager
The winter season is well underway and its remarkable how many different running disciplines Westbury Harriers runners are involved in – cross country, road races, relays, multi terrain and fell races, ultra distance – and even a range of multi discipline events – duathlons, aquathlons, triathlons.
I’ve put together a list of races (below). It’s not fully inclusive but a good starting point to plan your winter training and races. If you want to race any Gwent League or championship races please let me or Scott Campbell know. We can help with entries and we can work together on sharing transport. Please look at the Tri Counties, S.W. and British Masters Athletics Federation races. They are good events and would be great to have teams in the Vet categories. Have a great season. Mike
Westbury Harriers are always well represented and successful in the Gwent League Cross Country races. The league is already underway with some really good runs from our vet men in the last event at Cardiff on 14th October – see previous race reports.
