RAS 30K PEDWRA LLYN/4 LAKES 30K RACE REPORT

In glorious sunny weather with very little wind 35 runners set off on the scenic 4 Lakes race route encompassing the Snowdonia National Park, Eryri’s Dewi Owen made his intentions clear from the start as he led from start to finish despite the initial close intentions of Menai T&F athlete Shane Williams, Dewi was able to maintain a narrow lead to begin with before pulling away in the 2nd half of the race to win by a clear margin in a time of 2:05:42 with Shane runner-up 2:08:24 and 3rd Mark Davies (NWRRC) 2:09:03.
Even more impressive was the first female finisher in 7th place overall was Eryri’s Miranda Grant who finished in a time of 2:16:51, just 35 seconds off the women’s course record! Also running very well was the 2nd female finisher, Jennifer Charlton (Eryri Harriers- FV/40) with a time of 2:25:39 and 3rd female Emma Collins (Denbigh Harriers – FV/50) 2:30:58.
Thank You to Mountain Rangers Sports & Social Club for hosting the event once again, St John Ambulance for their medical support and everyone who helped out with marshalling duties on the day.
