British and English success for club members

The Fell Running Association prize giving took place in Telford last night and saw Eryri well represented.

Jackie took the British Ladies title sharing it with British International Victoria Wilkinson; two wins and a 2nd place each, the first Welsh winner since our own Angela Brand-Barker 20 years ago.

Jackie also led the ladies to a fine 2nd team position, Jenny H and Wendy in Ireland, Serena and Kate in Scotland, and Andrea and Helen T at the Maesgwm Muddle, well done all.

URGENT – marshals required for this weekend’s Peris

At least 4 marshals are required for this Saturday’s Peris Horseshoe Race from Llanberis.

Nine regulars are unable to help this year so we are appealing for those not planning to run who can spare some time to assist by walking up a hill.

When people say the phrase, “these things can’t happen without…”,  it’s actually true, this race cannot go ahead without marshals. 

If you can help contact Mike Blake on 07778 145144.
