Trefriw Mill Race

Trefriw Mill Race
Today saw the re-run of a race run in 1996.  Formerly titled the Pedol Crafnant, the race, whilst thoroughly enjoyed by many was never re-run for a number of reasons.  Twenty years later the race is reborn as the Trefriw Mill Race, and included in the WFRA North Wales Series.
At 10.5 miles, and covering some testing terrain, the race was advertised as experience required.  Fortunately runners were blessed with perfectly still and cool conditions which made it less arduous, but even so one or two still found to the route a bit tricky.  The race covers exposed ridge, bog, rough descents and lakeside banks, before the final twisting paths back down to the village.
Todays race was won by Miranda Grant of Eryri in 1.54.13 and Lloyd Taggart of Manx Fell Runners in 1.34.09, and both have set quality marks to be challenged in the future.
The final race of the North Wales Series takes place on Sunday 23rd October at Clwydian Hills, Cilcain, after which the AGM will be held, all members are welcome.

FRA Relays

Well the British Fell Relay Championships are almost upon us. It’s Scotland’s turn this year with the Event Centre at Luss on the banks of Loch Lomond, less than an hour north of Glasgow. Event day is Saturday 15th October start time 10am.

Details can be found here:

28 th Annual British Athletics Fell and Hill Running Relay Championships Saturday 15 th October 2016: Luss Hills on the Western shore of Loch Lomond


At this point we have 3 teams entered Men, Vet Men, and Ladies. We can always add teams if people are keen, so please don’t shout at me yet that we have only entered one ladies team!!

Each team requires 6 runners. Leg 1 is solo, Leg 2 in pairs, Leg 3 is a nav leg in pairs & Leg 4 solo.

We currently have 5 ladies, 4 Vet Men and hopefully 3 Men.

It’s a fantastic day to be a part of a team. Those who have taken part before or got involved in the Lee Mill relays will know how good they are! So if you want to take part give either Jenks or me a shout and we’ll get it sorted.

There will be a minibus going if required, if people want to go up on the Friday night we can sort accommodation too. According to the website an informal run is being planned for the Sunday morning so staying on afterwards may be an option too! A weekend of running in Scotland. You know what they say a change is as good as a rest!

We’d love to get three teams sorted and we are more than happy to take more if we can.

Let us know asap.
