The Garn Race Friday 22nd August
With ideal conditions for running and views extending to the Isle of
Man the Garn race took place , from the Llanfairynghornwy Sports
field. Harvey Wharton had little time to take in the views as he
flew around the course in a remarkable new record time of 13.54 ,
clipping just over a minute off the previous best. He was followed in
by the two previous winners , making it a Cybi 1,2,3.
This was the first time a runner in the main race (which takes in an
extra half mile/100 feet) has returned before the junior winner , in this
case 12yr old local lad Rhys Griffiths ,competing in his first hill race.
Rhys also won the Elaine Thomas Memorial shield.
