Saturday 22nd May was the Lletty Fell Race from Llangynhafal incorporating the Inter-county fell race. This is the fifth running of this event, and in typical Martin style it is tough. And the heat made it a bit more so. It is the same course as the Tafarn Trail last Autumn, with five good climbs totalling nearly 3000 feet in 9miles.
There were 211 finishers in a very high class field. The course record was beaten by 14 minutes, with over 30 runners completing the course inside the old course record.
Buckley Runners had the usual gang of suspects out, happy to have a go at anything. And others were out on the course, marshalling, cheering on and providing much needed fluids. Everybody who finished deserved a medal on a day when many experienced runners succumbed to the heat and the terrain and failed to finish. Jez and Simon had superb runs.
