A record entry for this increasingly popular traditional-model race connected to a lovely village
show in the heart of Monmouthshire’s Black Mountains. And a near-record run for Mynydd Du’s Sean
Taylor who thrived in the firm and balmy conditions.
Katie Beecher running for Cardiff’s Les Croupiers club found the energy - after her recent run
along the whole 104 miles of the Cotswold Way – to overhaul Chepstow’s Vanessa Lawson on the run-in.
A promising debut in the Seniors’ race for 15 year-old Charlie Sapwell, stepping up after
winning the Juniors’ for the last two years.
And an astonishing run in the Juniors’ race from 8 year-old Ceri Summers ahead of first
boy Ben Evans, a veteran at 9 years!
And sterling work from course markers/marshals Rob Brown and Lou & Rob Summers.
