The Peris Horseshoe is a month away and I’m looking for marshals. This has been an iconic race for Eryri Harriers for a number of years and this year is part of the Open Welsh & North Welsh WFRA Championships.
For those new to the Peris there are Full and Half versions. The Full takes in Elidir Fawr, Y Garn, Glyder Fawr before dropping to Pen y Pass then climbing Lliwedd, Yr Wyddfa & Moel Cynghorion to finish back in Llanberis. The half completes the first three summits and finishes at Pen y Pass.
As with every race they can only go ahead with the help of volunteers out on the hill so if you can spare some time on Saturday 9th September it would be greatly appreciated.
The major marshal locations are the 6 summits, Pen y Pass (Half finish & drinks station) and the finish of the Full in Llanberis. So there’s something for everyone!!
Please get in touch if you can help and pass on to friends, family and clubmates as everyone is welcome.
In the past couple of years we have been lucky that peopel have been generous with cakes which we have used at the Half finish/feed station of the full and at the finish of the full. If this can happen again then I’d be very grateful. It all helps to create the atmosphere of the race.
One final thing! This year registration/HQ will be in Electric Mountain rather than The Heights. The Heights have been great to us over the last few years but it’s not an ideal scenario for either them or us as race organisers. Electric Mountain will make a great race HQ.
