Two Eryri runners completed the gruelling Isle of Jura Race on the 29th of May in a very competitive field and a counter in the Scottish champs. Chris Near finished in 43rd place at 4:11:20 followed by Adrian Williams in 48th place at 4:15:01. Well done to both of them!
Eleven club members raced at the weekend’s Cader Idris Race. Heavy rain the day before and on the morning of the race left a very wet course, with rivers flowing on some of the paths it was slippy conditions all round.
At the summit Richard Roberts was leading for the club in third position, with 11 seconds between him and the second placed runner, but he managed to catch him and claim second overall by half a minute, an excellent result.
Martin Cliffe took the first v40 slot.
Despite all 300 places being sold out in advance only 233 finished on the day. The full list of Eryri members are below.
On Saturday was the Clwydian Hills Excalabur events which included a Half Marathon in which Lizzie Irvine finished 11th overall and 2nd female in a time of 2:04:54
