Dyfi 8 - Saturday 12 September

The race was held from the Tan y Coed Picnic site between Corris and Machynlleth. The course was approximately 8 miles run soley on forest roads rising continously for 3 miles, dropping down fo a mile around a ridge before climbing again for a mile and then downhill to the finish.

Thankfully in the heat of the day a lot of the route was in the shade of the trees. The views in the parts of the race were stunning. The race was well marked, two much needed water stations and wonderful tea and cake afterwards.

29 runners took part, Jack Thomas finished 15th in 1.09.19 and Sue Ridings 25th in 1.25.48. Both picking up a prize of a 'micro fibre' sports towel for their efforts. Special prize of the day went to a gentleman called Tom in the Vet 85 category - 2hrs 14 mins

The event was organised by Brenda Roberts from Bro Dysynni who was disappointed with only 29 runners, we tried to assure her it was a race worthwhile continuing and we would spread the word.
