TRAILFFEST TRAIL RACE REPORT
9 Eryri Harriers competed in the Trailffest Trail race on Saturday 22nd September. Following a week of heavy rain and very strong winds, the previous Half Marathon race route was shortened to a 20k event due to fallen trees on parts of the H/M course. Weather conditions were quite good with hardly any wind and only light rain but, underfoot conditions were very wet and slippery in many places.
Meirionydd club runner Alun Williams led from the off to comfortably win in a time of 1:22:25 ahead of runner-up Dan Collister 1:31:09. Leading Eryri Home was Ali Chant in 7th position with a time of 1:35:23 followed by: 10th Andrew Rowe 1:36:59. 11th Dylan Jones 1:37:17. 12th & 1st MV/60 Arwel Lewis 1:37:27. 32nd Steve Jones (SPJ) 1:48:25. 65th Maldwyn Evans 2:07:20. 73rd Dei (The Veg) Jones 2:13:35. 113th Judith Jones 2:32:55 and 139th Iorwerth Roberts 3:19:14.
A very good, well organised event and despite being classed as a “Mountain to the Sea” Trail race. It is not all downhill!
