Ras y Berwyn

A great new race on the calendar in an area long associated with access problems and therefore an irresistable temptation to many of us (also happened to be a counter in the Welsh and North Wales fell race series). Jez and Simon R had reccied it in advance, only to find out that nesting birds necessitated a complete reversal of the planned route. It was a tad moist underfoot on the long climb to Cadair Berwyn, but the rest was just ankle-snapping tussocks and thick heather. Around half marathon distance I think, over three peaks, maybe 3500ft of climbing? Performances of the day came from Pete, John and Jez. Thanks are due to organiser Peter Agnew of Clwydian who did a great job. SGR.

  1. Fantastic route, recce about a month ago was a lot drier, so race day was really tough underfoot.
