Due to the fantastic fundraising the swimmers hove done lately, the club are going to
subsidise the cost of the trip by 50%. We feel this is a great opportunity for the

the club and then continue this on to supporting each other at club chomps in Sept.

it along with the cost of E20 to Sarah Legg by Fri 26th July. Due to the limited number

Big Cheese Race 2013

Ready, Set…. Cheese – Book your place in the Great Cheese Race Now!

With Caerphilly’s annual Big Cheese Festival only just over a month away, its time to make this summer one to remember by booking your place to take part in one of the highlights of the weekend – the Great Cheese Race!
CCSS are looking for swimmers to make up teams full of energy and enthusiasm to sign up and join the opening celebrations of the weekend on the Friday evening (26th July).

Children and adults alike are encouraged to take part in the fun run around a special course, which takes participants around the grounds of the magnificent castle, with fancy dress adding to the laughter and enjoyment.

Every year teams line up to take part in the race. Now it’s your turn and all you have to do is create a team of 4 swimmers / parents to come along at 6.00pm. You can walk, jog or run – at the end of the day it’s just for fun!

The race is a great way to raise sponsorship for the club,if we have enough interest we will make it a sponsored run. Over the last 4 years CCSS has won the junior section, and last year we took, 1st and 2nd place, and this year we are looking to break that record for a 5th year.

Get your team’s together, and let Sian Boyles know who your team will be, before July 10th. All entrants will receive a certificate and medal, with overall winners for best fancy dress and each race.
