The penultimate race in the Joe Brown Tuesday Night Fell series was, once again, held in Abergwyngregyn but followed a different route to the last two races at Aber. This is a 4.5 mile race which climbs a steep 700 feet in the first mile before following a lovely, grassy track towards Aber Falls. After crossing the stream below the Falls, it continues to climb another 500 feet before descending for two miles resulting in a frantic, fast finish. Menai Baugh was the only Harrier to run and had a very good race, finishing in 52:51.
Two Harriers travelled to Coed y Brenin on Saturday. Although it was showery with occasional heavy downpours, conditions under foot remained good.
David Say finished the trail marathon 20 minutes faster than last year, showing a good improvement. He was 5th V60, 5:39:59.
Emma Collins ran the half, and was quite happy with a similar time as last year, 2:00:35, 8th lady, 1st V50.
In the Parkrun roundup, Manfredi Toraldo ran in Copenhagen, finishing 29th in 22:18.
In Oslo (and thus winning the award for most Northerly race of the week), David Baugh finished in a time of 21:42, crossing the line in 17th place.
At Conwy, Philip Hayes completed the course in 23:52. Angela Beedles ran a PB of 31:35
Craig Jones ran an impressive 19:12 at Warrington, finishing a very good 7th out of 370 runners.
Finally, Katy Baugh ran in Wepre, crossing the line as 2nd lady in a time of 26:01
