Y Garn     Friday 24th August

Following a fine afternoon the sky turned ominously dark and rain pelted down just in time for the start of the Garn race. Undaunted , twelve runners set off for the hill and Irfon Rowlands and Rhys Owen contested for the lead with Irfon passing Rhys on the descent and maintaining his lead to the finish.
Only one female competed this year, but we were delighted to welcome 17yr old Lydia Sharpe, recently selected for the English Junior International fell running team following a fine run at the selection race in Glenridding, Cumbria , earlier this month ( where the rain was even heavier apparently ! ) .
My thanks to all the marshalls , the family at 'Garn' farm , Lllanfairynghornwy Sports committee and to Tony Hulme and ' Running Bear ' for their continued support of the Anglesey hill races.
