Fabian4 Dyffryn Conwy Mountain Challenge

Categories: Mountain Running News

Despite having at least 3 other events clashing last Sunday, we had a good turn-out at the Fabian4 Dyffryn Conwy Mountain Challenge, with many Eryri members – old & new – taking part.  For once, the weather was good, so the river wasn’t too choppy, the views from the high point on the run leg were amazing, & the dry bits of the Marin Trail we used made it a fast, exciting mountain bike leg. Competitors & marshals all had an enjoyable day, & hopefully, we will have made a goodly sum for the Snowdonia Society. There were some notable Eryri Harriers performances:

  • Lou Beetlestone won the Ladies Individual Triathlon
  • James Harwood was 3rd in the Mens Duathlon
  • Jenny Williamson 3rd in the Ladies Duathlon
  • 2nd team’s runner was Tim Watson
  • 3rd team’s runner was Paul Hodges
  • Yours truly was the mountain biker for the 4th team, whose runner, Sion Harlow clocked the fastest time of the day on leg 2
  • Sarah Barnwell was the mountain biker for the 5th team, & was an amazing 4th overall on leg 3
  • Ben Beachell won 1st local
  • Clive Hartfall was 1st in the Grand Masters
