Training Runs

winter training runs

During the winter, MDC meets for fortnightly headtorch runs – just turn up to run at 6.30pm sharp for an hour or so sweating up some of the finest hillsides in South East Wales. All runs finish at a local pub or a member’s house to replace lost calories. Where a run is from an individual’s house please contact the host beforehand so they get an idea of numbers, and don’t forget to bring your own beer!


The terrain can be rough and remote, so come prepared with adequate clothing and a good headtorch for the conditions and time of year. If you haven’t been before, contact Gary to let us know you’d like to come – he’s on


On weeks without a listed run, check on the MDC Facebook group for alternative activities.
