Pipe Dream Fell Race 5th March

I bet John Buchan never visited Dolgarrog, as there was certainly many, many more than his own 'Thirty Nine Steps' facing runners virtually from the off as they were required to climb a reported 1200 feet in the first mile tracing the line of the water feed pipe that used to service he now defunct aluminium works.
A number of Bucklyites did visit however and had a really enjoyable day 'at the races' in near perfect conditions and fantastic atmosphere. The tea and sandwiches in the community centre afterwards just rounded the event off brilliantly.
The scores on the doors then.
Simon Roberts 38.49 7th
Chris Higgins 44.47 38th
Peter Roberts 45.01 39th
John Morris 46.07 46th
Fenella Higgins 52.22 72nd
Paul Donaghue 52.57 74th
Sue Ridings 64.32 91st.


  1. Just a quick note - it was Simon Edwards, not me, that put in a fine performance for 7th place here. I would still be picking my way down the descent if I'd been daft enough to have a go! Well done all - hope to see you in South Wales.

  2. So close yet....Sorry 'Big' Si, exactly right Mr. Roberts and nice to see you both legging it on Sunday. Yup booked in for the 'point to point' in the south of the Principality as have other Buckleyites. Plenty of blue on them there hills!
    Take care
