Trots St Clears    

Welcome 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.
