Cader Idris race
A record field of 260+ runners for this year's Ras y Gader. Wonderful warm, clear weather - perhaps a little too warm. Just two Buckley Runners this year. Although a little down on his pb for the race, Simon Edwards kept picking up places on the descent to finish 15th in 1:42:40. Simon Roberts lost places floundering in the lakeside bog, finishing 29th in 1:47:15. Always a great atmosphere for this race, which starts and finishes in the middle of Dolgellau.
