Pete Douglas Memorial – Tryfan 23rd August

Categories: Membership News,Mountain Running News,Our Races News

It is almost 12 months since Pete passed away, and he has been missed, most publically by the huge gap he left in the world of Welsh fellrunning photography.  Along with Al being unwell we have lost a great a contribution to the sport.

At Pete’s own request no funeral was held, something which some people found strange, but his wishes were respected.

On Saturday 23rd August a memorial will take place for Pete immediately following the Tryfan Downhill Dash. The race time is to meet at 2pm, at which time those competing will climb to the summit, with the race starting when everyone gets there.

Pete thoroughly enjoyed the Tryfan Downhill, and in fact it was the last race he filmed and photographed before he passed away, and he used it to test a new lens he purchased that week.

This year, when everyone get’s/falls back down there will be a prizegiving and then at approx 3pm a simple celebration of Pete’s life and appreciation of the contribution he gave to people by way of a few words spoken. 

Everyone welcome, regardless of whether you want to run this crazy race, or just watch the drama unfold and then pay your respects to Pete.  If you feel you want to say something on the day feel to do so and let me know.

 

Craig.
