The football club has a (COVID-19 risk-assessed) public bar which will be serving drinks all day – inside & outside – and we’d love it to have some custom, but please adhere to any COVID mitigation policies they are advising.
Please do come again this year to support this tough, scenically superb fell race in my back garden the foothills of the Carneddau!! Hopefully it will help to promote the restarting of old favourite fell races in our corner of North Wales……
