Up the Beast

The big Beast roadshow rolled into sleepy Maeshafn on Tuesday evening. The creation of evil genius John M, it may be the steepest fell race in North Wales (I'm thinking of the second climb back up Bryn Alyn when I say that!). It has been blessed by pleasant evening sunshine since its revival 4 or 5 years ago, and always attracts a decent field of 70+ runners from across the region. Many of our club stalwarts were there to help out (thanks to all!) and good numbers also ran, climbed and crawled their way round the course. The pickled onions and balsamic vinegar were safely disposed of during the prize giving, expertly compered by Huw. No driving gloves, gnomes or bags of cement this year?

  1. Next year I am a helper .......... still haven't got over it

  2. Did we get the team prize then ?? :o)

    I don't know how John found the route up that second hill, it seemed too steep even for goats ;o)

    Sue, sorry all the helper positions are already taken, you'll have to run it again !
