There was a good Dark Peak contingent for this. The Peris must have the slowest minute/mile ratio of all the long ratio of all the long races now that the Arrochar Alps race has been lost.
It was just a day of perfection, cool and sunny. The mist lifted off each hill just as we got to it so that the views just got better and better. Even scrabbling up the North Ridge of Snowdon on wobbling legs I couldn’t think of anything else I\'d rather be doing. Roger Woods had a strong run and the rest of us packed in behind him. It was just a shame we weren\'t all half an hour further up the field.
The most outstanding run of the day, however, was by Menna Angharad, an Eryri runner, relatively new to the sport. She took 12 minutes off a very good lady\'s record and finished 7th overall. I can\'t see any ladies getting even close to her in the near future... and not too many men either.
