Sports in and Around Wrexham/Rossett

This is a tricky one for me. There are lots of photos I could have taken but sadly, haven't had the time to do so. Wrexham has its own football club and grounds which is called "The Racecourse" (soccer to any americans reading this). We have a race course 6 miles from us in the city of Chester which is quite well known and another in Bangor-on-Dee. We also have a triathelon club.

My sport is running and the picture of Darland Woods (above) is where I run. You can see Pickles one of my dogs in this photo.

We enjoy horse riding and this year we are looking forward to competing in some shows locally.
We love swimming and so do the dogs!


  1. that is cute the dogs wearing little life vests. running looks like a good sport, but I walk. I figure I will get there eventually!!

  2. I don't care for running - a fast walk is really good and doesn't hurt the next morning. I played soccer in the USA and really enjoyed it for about 4 years. but the best exercise is dancing - I can run for 20 minutes / walk for 2 hours and dance all night.

  3. Oh how fun...I love running as long as there is a horse under me LOL!! I do enjoy walking and hiking the puppy shot!!
    Hugs, Sarah

  4. I remember when I was in Borneo, and when it flooded, the dogs loved swimming, the cats didn't.

    Horses are fun for my children, horses don't like me.

  5. The dog must be a good swimmer! I love animals,but from a distance! lol

  6. Love the dog's little life vest! I swear my dog is half fish, he just loves swimming. Or the water in general, can never resist even a puddle.
