Llyn Y Fan Fell       Sunday 13th September 2015      Results

Blue skies and sun shone over the looming mountain of Piccws Du as 61 runners gathered ready to tackle the beautiful ridge above Llyn y Fan fach. This was the last race in the WFRA Open Welsh series and the first in the Winter hill series.

It was an exciting finish for the first 3 men back, battling the final descent, but Harry Jones (MDC) won through in 43.32 ahead of Huw Aggleton (MDC) (43.40) and Mark Paler (Mynydd Du and Mo50) (43.46).

First lady home was Eryri’s Lauren Jeska (Fo40) in 17th place in a time of 54.04, 2nd was female under 23 Bronwen Jenkinson (Eryri) 57.32 and 3rd Lady Emma Bayliss (Mynydd Du) back in 1.01.12.

There was a great range of ages for our category prizes which was fantastic – though I underestimated the number of Likey’s vouchers I would have to buy! All winners who missed out will be sent out in the post asap.

Category winners were:
Under 23 – male: Meshari Ashaheed (MDC), Under 23 –female: Gina Isis Schade
Over 40 – male: Dan Hooper (Sarn Helen), female: Naomi Law (Mynydd Du)
Over 50 – male: Paul Jeggo (Springfield), female: Rona Davies (Mynydd Du)
Over 60 – male: Chris Wilcox (Clwydian), female: Maggie Oliver (Eryri)
Over 70 – male: John Morris (Buckley), female: where are you ladies?!

Thankyou so much for support from my family and my fellow club members in Mynydd Du, especially Emma Bayliss for her cakes, Sean Taylor, Paul Grainger Jones and Maria Richards for marshalling up on the hill.
