Fron Four

Fancy something to offset your chocolate Easter egg consumption? Fron Four is a local race starting in….Fron! on Sat 20th (Easter weekend).
It takes in all the high points on Mynydd Mawr (including the summit…twice), plus Moel Tryfan, incase you missed the first Midweek Series race. Details are on the WFRA race page (see link).
I wouldn’t be surprised if all the prizes were Easter eggs…

Pen Cerrig Calch

Only 3 Harriers made the long journey to South Wales to take part in the 2nd Counter in the WFRA Welsh Champs.

Ellie Salisbury arrived home as 2nd V50, while Alwyn and Maggie Oliver came in consecutively, gaining 4th MV70, and 1st LV70. Well done all!!

Pipedream Second North Wales Series counter

Pipedream:

28 Eryri harriers took part, with excellent results all round in this early season, short but really tough race. There aren’t many fell races out there that gain most of their height by using the stairs!

Gavin Roberts was first Harrier back in 4th place, with Owain Williams not far behind in 6th. In 9th place, and 3rd V40 was Emlyn Owen.

In the Women, Catherine Connell was 2nd overall, and 1st SF, Becki Law was 4th SF, while Sarah Barnwell and Ellie Salisbury were 2nd V50 and 3rd V50.

An excellent turn out of Eryri Harriers for this race….I’m yet to hear if the prize giving was up to the usual standard. Did the race winner win a pineapple this year…?
