Last year’s second and third placers, Matt Stott and Mark Palmer, drew away from the chasing pack by Checkpoint 2 on Mynydd Llangorse. The duo gradually extended the lead to nine minutes, with Matt consolidating his lead over Mark to 40 seconds by the finish back at Cwmdu village.

Women’s winner Jackie Lee journeyed down from North Wales and broke Lauren Jeska’s record from last year while finishing fifth overall.

This third counter in the Paul Fosh Auctions’ sponsored South Wales Fell Championships took place on a muggy but rain-free day with fairly good under-foot conditions. The sun finally emerged as the weary runners sat on the village green enjoying cake and tea.

Age group winners were Rhian Probert, Martin Shaw, Rona Davies, Mark Palmer, Gary Gunner and Rob West.     Dick Finch
