A record turnout for this excellent local fell race last Wednesday. Nice to report a very healthy crop of hill running enthusiasts from Buckley, too, and some good performances all round. The route - up Foel Fenlli from Llanferres - was slightly shorter this year, due to footpath work, hence the fast times. Jez Brown continued his rich vein of form, finishing an impressive 5th in a strong field (33:56). Simon Roberts came 10th (36:01), with Steve Bellis 23rd (40:02). Next came first v65 Pete Roberts 33rd in 41:06, followed by the trio of Dawn Urquhart: 43rd in 42:26, John Morris: 45th in 42:39 and Paul Donoghue: 47th in 43:09. Chris Higgins was 59th in 45:07, Fenella Higgins 70th in 49:31 and Rob Mackey 77th in 52:08.
