King John’s Castle 2011      Llanarmon yn Ial      Results

This was the first running of this race & not in the WFRA calendar.
We had 29 runners & the race was hotly contested with the ever improving Neil Parry getting the better of Jez Brown. The Ladies race was not so closely fought with Lisa Grantham being a comfortable winner.
The Raven Inn is now a village co-operative after being closed for some time & they were keen to host us, providing freshly made soup which we were thankful for.
Thank you to those who helped me, Yiannis, Ben, Andy, Fred, Ruth, also the evergreen Joe Beswick who always turns up to our races without being asked. We raised £30 for the South Wales mining disaster fund. I look forward to putting it on again next year & listing it in the Calendar to raise even more money for a worthy cause.       John Linley
