Welsh/North Wales fell running championships

The final event of the Welsh fell running championships, and the North Wales series, at the Breidden Hills fell race near Welshpool. A great set of results for our small club, with 6 prizes in both series. On the day, Simon E put in a superb performance on one of his favourite races to finish 8th overall in a very strong field. Simon R came 14th with Fenella also putting in a sterling performance aided and abetted by Chris. But the day was all about the final results in the series. The N Wales series included 9 races in 2011 and is keenly contested - the achievements highlighted below from Simon E, Fen and John are therefore outstanding. The Welsh series involves 6 races in all four corners of Wales between April and October - ranging from 4 mile dashes through Pembrokeshire peat bogs to 22 mile epics across the highest peaks in Snowdonia. All good fun.
