Easy with Ben and Megan over to Oldbury court.

I won being part of first run of the day again. Though fortunately, the previous night we had got a bit ahead of schedule , so didn't need to start until 8:00 and had had time to get the tent down in the light.
Not feeling very spritely, but fortunately I wasn't the only one.
Bull bay to Amlwch. Great little harbour there. According to Alice back in 1800 Amlwch had a bigger population than Cardiff - all to do with the Copper Mining on nearby Parrys mountain.
Run 28:31  4.88 km (5:51 / km) +90m 5:21 / km
Traeth Dulas to Traeth Lligwy. Estuary, hill , headland, beach.... coffee and some Dallimore cake at end.
Run 1:00:41  10.18 km (5:58 / km) +231m 5:21 / km
My last run of weekend. From Eastern end of Red Wharf bay to Penmon Point.
Had expected path to take us up to near Bwrrdd Arthur fort - but new path / way markers kept us much closer to the cliffs, which was great - even though longer, less road running . It did cause some confusion for those watching our tracker progress though - Marcus going wrong ? Surely not?....... Lovely finish down to the headland with views on all sides.
Icecream at end for me.
Tremendous weekend away. not visited Angeley much previously - Newborough and Ferry port mainly - and was really impressed by the coast line. Many interesting things to see as well - prehistoric remains, Old industrial features. Definitely want to spend a bit more time there.
Relay itself was a great social event as well - good chance to get to know better some of the newer member of the club and to catch up again with old timers such as Tom and Astrid Gibbs.
Thanks due to Karen Elvers for making it happen and to GD44 for working out the running schedule.
Run 46:37  8.33 km (5:36 / km) +85m 5:19 / km
First leg of the day and took a while to get going. From Maltreath to Aberfraw. Cutting inland to start which wasn't the most interesting, but lovely on the last bit as we we got down to the dunes, then beach and back up the estuary.
Run 4:41  7.56 km (37 / km) +50m 36 / km
From just south of Rhosneigr to the Northern end of Anglesey airport. Mainly hugging the coast, great views out to Holy island and attractive beach in Trath Cymyran.
Run 32:49  5.91 km (5:33 / km) +15m 5:29 / km
Saw the Flying Scotsman going over bridge exactly at the moment we were driving underneath it. Then saw it again crossing the causeway as we were wating for changeover at Penrhos.
Run from there across the causeway then up the little estuary to Llanfachraeth. A real timeless quality to the estuary. Easy to imagine medaeval folk in coracles putting nets across the river - probably just my imagination - did they use coracles in this part of Wales ?
Run 51:39  7.78 km (6:38 / km) +132m 6:07 / km
The wildest bit of coast of the day for me. Had to jog down to change over in little cove by Ynys y Fydlyn. Then around Carmel head and as far as Bryn aber with views towards Wylfa nuclear powerstation . Quite a juxtoposition.
Run 36:04  6.9 km (5:14 / km) +45m 5:04 / km
Start of jolly MDC weekend away running around the Anglesey Coast path. Relay style, in groups of 2,3,4 or even more.
Leg on the North side of the Menai Strait from Llanedwyn, near Plas Newydd to Foel Farm. Was not expecting much from this leg, but actually quite fun running along the shingle shore and some quiet foothpaths with great views accross the strait.
Run 38:08  6.04 km (6:19 / km) +55m 6:02 / km
From Newborough beach car park - negotaiting all the traithlon barriers being erected - to the end of Ynys Llanddwyn. And back - handing on batton to next team on route . Despite having orienteered at Newborough many times have never made it out to the headland / "island" . And it was fabulous - especially in the bright but windy conditions we had.
Strength & Conditioning 45:00 
Not any easier yet....
Urban Orienteering race 46:00  6.31 km (7:17 / km) +182m 6:22 / km
SWOC street Score event in Crickhowell prior to the AGM. Raining hard, and
not very navigationally challenging but vistied some of the footpaths up towards table mountain and enjoyed it more than I was expecting.
Run 2:48:17  23.6 km (7:08 / km) +757m 6:09 / km
With Charles. Across the Ebbw, up Myndd Machen , down to Wattsville up the Murder Mile as far the Church Inn and then down the Raven walk to Cwmcarn at which point we realised I had been a bit too ambitous with the timing so opted for the canal route back instead of the originally intended Twmbarlwm....... Hope Charles got to his father of the bride, wedding suit fitting in time .....
Longest run I have done for a while.
