to the website of the Taf Running and Orienteering Team (TROTs),
based in St Clears. The club competes in road, multi-terrain and
cross country races across West Wales, the UK and around the world.
Since forming in the late 1980s, the TROTs membership has grown
and now includes more than 70 regular runners from under 16
to over 60! Club members are now more focused on road running,
cross country and fell running than orienteering. However, orienteers
in West Wales are welcome to boost their fitness by training
with the TROTs. And you can discover more aboutorienteering
organisations and clubs via our links page.
