Elliw Haf took the women’s title, finishing 18th overall in a time of 41:37. Though the weather conditions were a bit damp, with just a slight wind. There was a very good turnout of 170 finishers.
A very well organised and supported event.

Ras y Moelwyn report and results.

2nd British Championship race/ 2nd race in Eryri Club fell running champs:

Ras y Moelwyn

The second British Championship race came to the beautiful Moelwyns this Saturday. Conditions were balmy in comparison to the Northern Ireland race, with a breeze just to make it feel like you were properly in the mountains, and a touch of cloud on the summits to keep everyone on their toes but no need to wear full kit before even starting the race. Phew.

There was an excellent turnout from Eryri with 27 runners getting stuck into the race, with excellent runs all round :-). Full results attached below but heres a brief run-down:

The Men: 1st Eryri to cross the line in a very tough field was Russell Bentley in 15th place (and 1st Local), followed closely by Richard Roberts in 17th place and an excellent 2nd V40 placing in a very competitive category.

3rd Harrier in was Tom Wood, also claiming 2nd in the U23 category.

Russell Owen had a cracking race, coming in 1st V60, and also providing top route finding in the mist (i think alot of non-local runners were thankful for that!). There were many good runs across all age categories, so well done everyone!

The Ladies: Maggie Oliver had a great result coming in 1st V70. There were good result in the V50 category with Sarah Barnwell coming in as 4th V50, Nia Albiston and Megan Hughes placing well in the V40 category, and great placings from Becki Law, Jacki Artist and Lucy O’Donnell in the Open Women category.

The club did excellently in the Team prizes, placing 3rd in both the Mens and the Womens’ Open team prize :-). Da’i iawn pawb!

This race was also Welsh Athletics mountain hill running championship. Ill provide a link to the results when they are published on the Welsh Athletics website but there were some excellent results from the club.

Well done every one! Next race in the British Championships is The Great Lakes on the 15th June.

Ras y Moelwyn

This Saturday is the wonderful (and local) Ras y Moelwyn. Its the 2nd counter in the British Fellrunning Championship AND ALSO (more importantly!?) 2nd counter the Eryri Club (fell) Championships!
Entries are still open on the Fabian4 website and further information in the link below or on WFRA website. Loads of Eryri Harriers have already entered. It would be great to get a HUGE team out to this race!

3rd counter in WFRA North Wales Series: Moel Eilio

3rd counter in WFRA North Wales Series: Moel Eilio

Warm weather, firm conditions underfoot, and perfect visibility were all present and correct on the day for this lovely local fell race. The route first takes in Moel Eilio summit and its descending ridge-line, followed by a long hoick up the seemingly never-ending back of Moel Cynghorion. The descent off the face of Cynghorion provides an opportunity to gain or lose time depending on how much you value being able to walk the next day.

24 Eryri’s took part in the race, with good runs across the field.

Coming in in 2nd place (1st V40) was Richard Roberts, followed by Emlyn Owen in a cracking 4th place (and 2nd V40), with Neil Hockley in hot pursuit in 5th.

Amongst the ladies, Elliw Haf came in in 2nd place, with Jen Charlton having a fab run coming in 3rd. The next Eryri lady home was Nia Albiston, coming in 8th amongst the women.

Well done to everyone who took part.
