Ras y Moelwyn – 8.5mile fell race, held in Blaenau Ffestiniog on Saturday the 16th of April.

Great weather conditions & a great atmosphere for the 76 fell runners.

The nature of route which included exceptionally varied terrain – hard packed slate, bog, steep climbs & narrow rocky descents meant that a lot of jostling for positions occurred during this very exciting race.
