Rhayader 'round the lakes' 20 mile race
Three Buckley runners competed at the notoriously hilly Rhayader 20 mile road race in mid Wales yesterday. It's a bit like a fell race on tarmac, very scenic, with around 1000ft of climbing in the first 6 or 7 miles. Conditions were near-perfect - hazy sunshine and a cooling breeze. Simon Roberts staggered home in 33rd place: 2:22:38. Paul Donoghue 100th in 2:39:29 (apparently without breaking sweat), with Rob Davies 288th in 3:21:50.
