Congratulations to John Spill and Bronwen Jenkinson, who won the Welsh trial race in Betws for next month’s British & Irish Junior Mountain Championships for under 19 year olds.

Along with Cai Linton-Davies and Mollie Davies of Menai T&F, they’ll be competing for Wales in Glendalough in Ireland on Saturday, September 20th. 

Good luck to all.



Ras y Tren – results including juniors

Thanks to all the helpers last night especially Paul Carter who had to run the race (19 minutes), and then type in all the entries and feed all the numbers and times in ready for prize giving.

 Well done Rob Samuel, his third victory, while Llanrug’s Kathryn Gray recorded her first.

 Heatwave conditions ensured no records were broken, unless you count 15 gallons of water drunk, while 144 runners beat the train’s time of 23.33. The Coffi Roc case of beer went to Travis Trotters 80.54, ahead of Betsi Runaways 82.46.


That’s the last time I set the girls off after the boys ! Despite coming in 1st  and 2nd Eden and Jack suddenly found themselves relegated to 4th and 5th by the three girls who had started off 15 seconds behind them. Thanks to Chelsea and Neil from Tesco for attending and starting the race and for also funding the goody bags.
The North Wales Junior Fell Championships take place on the Orme 20th September, make a note in your parents diary kids, entry forms will be on our website from mid August.  Mike

Free 1 day Coaching Course on offer

The club is offering one member the opportunity to attend an official LiRF training course to become a qualified coach for the club.  Costs associated with the training will be paid by the club, we only ask in return that you genuinely intend to use the qualification for the good of the club.

This will allow you to officially coach both seniors and junior runners.  We already have one qualified coach, namely our Chairman and Junior Trainer, Paul Jenkinson.  Paul however could always do with a hand with the juniors occasionally.  The person attending this will also be well qualified to help out at the other training nights.

If interested please get in touch with Arwel Lewis asap on 07772 302411 or arweleryri@googlemail.com
