Please find below the long awaited results of Ras y Moelwyn (yes in this age of electronic timing a mere four days seems a long time to wait!).
Now, before anyone starts emailing me and grumbling please be warned there are some glaring errors in there, as for some reason the timekeeping and results didn’t go quite to plan, so don’t shoot the messenger. I gather the organisers are working on it so please contact them with any amendments, not me.
Anyway, a brief overview of this the second counter in the WFRA North Wales Series.
Jackie Lee reversed her fortunes following her third place at Llantysilio with a strong win after some top descending, overcoming Caitlin Price on the rough ground. Andrea Rowlands followed up with a strong third overall.
For the gents, contrary to what’s written on the results (they have the top two men wrongly as v40s), Martin Cliffe took 4th overall and 2nd v40 behind Mercia’s Paul Jones in 3rdoverall. Craig Jones was 9th overall, and possibly 3rd v40 but who knows!
I won’t try to second guess the ladies or any other vet results for that matter as they’re all over the place, but I can say that Ellie Salisbury took a flying tumble and left some blood and skin all over the place. In true fellrunner style she gritted her teeth and finished well, though her face whilst being attended to in the first aid tent was a picture!
