The evening of Friday 26th January saw Islwyn Running Club hold their 2017 awards ceremony @ the Islwyn Indoor Bowling Centre in Gelligroes, Pontllanfraith, with an attendance in excess of 100 guests. Entertainment was once again provided by our very own Rhydwyn Harris's excellent band, Under the Covers! An excellent evening was had by all...
