Manx Mountain Invite

Manx Mountain Invite – with accommodation!

Club member Jackie Lee extends an open invitation for Eryri to send a team to tackle the Manx Mountain Marathon.


28th September 2013 – 50k /8000′ (also a shorter race for those not up to the full distance)


Organised by the Manx Fell Runners, the classic very long race begun in 1970 on the Isle of Man has been re-branded as the Man Mountain Ultra, but it still remains mostly the same tough route (now with an extra hill), and the same challenge.


Jackie would like to see an Eryri gang go over and take the team prize as they did three years ago.  They’ll also try to find ‘homestay’ accommodation for everyone.


There’s also a cracking night out in Port Erin afterwards if they’ve got the stamina!


Information on the race and online entry can be found at


If anyone is interested then leave a reply comment at the bottom of this item so that everyone can see who’s up for it.

Welsh Castles Relay 2013

Welsh Castles Relay 2013

We, Eryri have been accepted as one of the 62 teams for this years Welsh Castles Relay (8th/9th June).  Quite a few teams were turned down!


I will probably be running one of the legs, all I require now is another 19 Eryri Harriers to run a leg each in this prestigious event.


Welsh Castles Relay is a 2 day, 20 stage, 211 mile, staggered relay race (mostly on road, but with many hills, mountains and bumpy bits en route. The route goes from Caernarfon to Cardiff with an overnight stay in Newtown. It is organised by Les Croupiers Running Club Cardiff.  All the event details are here
If any of you are interested in running one of the legs, could you please contact me by email or mobile: 07772302411 so that I can get everything coordinated with time to spare instead of the last minute as has happened on the other two occasions that I have managed the club in the event.


I will have a mini bus for the two days of the event so that we can follow the relay all the way down to Cardiff with the option of staying in Cardiff for a bit of a do after the event. First day stop in Newtown Leisure Centre or a nearby B&B/Hotel if we can get the bookings done as soon as people have committed to the event.
