It's been a bit of a slow start this year, but with Jim and Olwyn possibly the only ones making the journey to Llantysilio last week - and Olwyn returning home with a prize - our Mr P sits in splendid isolation atop the CSL2015 with three events completed (or at least he will once the results are confirmed). The first British Champs of the year, and fourth CSL counter - Ras y Moelwyn on Sat 18th April - has 27 DP entrants on the start list, so the team prize should be rather more competitive this time around ... you may want to start fixing your lifts via the comments below to ensure your best shot at this prestigious honour.
Following this third of our outings to Wales this year, next up will be the Scottish Classic Stuc a Chroin on Saturday 2nd May (bank holiday weekend), which claims to be ''[r]enowned for its plentiful supply of water, jelly babies and chocolate all along its 22k, [albeit] rumours that some runners actually put on weight during the race are to be treated with caution". It is also, by all reputes, a very fine route. Your CSL organiser will be reccying Scottish Hills in the preceding week and making his way over to the race venue by public transport/foot on the Friday, so will be very glad of a lift back to Sheffield either on the evening of Saturday 2nd, or on Sunday 3rd May.
