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.
