PWLL DU CHALLENGE. The half marathon of 2015.
The modern racing period at Mumbles Rowing Club has produced some unintentionally monster courses. In 2013 we nearly killed off the ladies crews with a finishing straight that was out of sight. An attempt to control the course in 2014 gave rise to the Pwll Du Challenge but this still proved to be a tough challenge due to having to circumnavigate the Cherry Stones beyond the light house. Keeping with the spirit of things, the decision has been made to make the 2015 Pwll Du Challenge a half marathon course, hopefully with celebratory party afterwards to aid recovery.
Events page highlights plans for 2015 half marathon.
Our very own Nat.H has started up an events page on the old FB. to start the ball rolling on the planning preparation and design of this years Mumbles race, which of course this year is to become a half marathon.
Last year saw participation by rowers from Portugal and London as well as our neighbouring clubs from West Wales. This year we are hoping to make more of an event of things and include an after row party and a camp over for as many clubs as possible. CH
