Fell Race Weekender
This years festival for the directionally challenged will be based at Ty Powdwr for the first time in a few years. Who knows there may actually be a few bits of mountainside in the area that participants have not accidentally wandered over in previous years. Maybe there should be a special prize for anyone who finds somewhere that Colin or Michelle have not already strayed to.
The race as always is on the Sunday thus leaving Saturday free to explore the area on foot or to go climbing if the Snowdonian weather permits.
On the Sunday the race will follow the usual format with the walkers setting forth at 10.30am and the runners at 11am.(I promise to try and remember that this year.) The route will be approximately 12 miles and will require the ability to navigate or to follow someone who can. As always there will be a little bit of up and down and 2 or 3 checkpoints to find along the way. Hopefully we will be blessed with mistier weather than last year to make things a bit more interesting.
As always trophies are awarded for 4 categories. Those being, the fastest person, the fastest lady, the lottery that is the handicap and the Concordia trophy for the best first time effort by a club member.
Hot soup is also guaranteed for those that run, walk or help and I might even try to bake a cake but it’ll probably be flapjack as always. Volunteers for checkpoint duty would be most appreciated.
Hope to see you on the day but a bit of advance notice would help on the catering front.
