Maesgwm - Llanberis. results. The final British Championships race, and best put that our Team positions will remain unchanged. For the Seniors, Carnethy were out in force, and a posse of Borrowdale runners had got the team out most strong in the MV40. Hopefully a weakened MV50 team were saving themselves for Hodder Valley. Donna made up the Ladies Team.
An excellent course indeed. Moel Eilio has oft been a Championship course, but with the up-and-down of Cynghorion, and also the loop at the end to Cefn Du, this was much harder. Thankfully the weather held clear.
Performance of the day was clearly from Keith, first V60, and either 2nd or 3rd for the Championships. Deserved reward for consistency throught the year(s).
Some notable candidates for the FRA "C" Team would have enhanced their chances of selection.
So in a fortnight it is the final English Championship race, Hodder Valley, just inland from Clitheroe. Entry on Day - just don't be late. Hopefully our Club can round it off in style?
As for final Team placings, individual medals, etc, we'd best await the findings of the FRA Statistician...
Our esteemed Carshare League Organiser was heard to claim the finish at Hoppits Hill amongst the hardest in Fell Races....little did he know about Maesgwm...or did you sprint up it? So what is the steepest finish?...(now that the original Boulsworth Hill is no longer..)
Peak District Challenge - various long distance courses. Anyone doing any of these?
