Today saw the re-run of a race run in 1996. Formerly titled the Pedol Crafnant, the race, whilst thoroughly enjoyed by many was never
re-run for a number of reasons. Twenty years later the race is reborn as the Trefriw Mill Race, and included in the WFRA North Wales Series.
At 10.5 miles, and covering some testing terrain, the race was advertised as experience required. Fortunately runners were blessed with perfectly
still and cool conditions which made it less arduous, but even so one or two still found to the route a bit tricky. The race covers exposed ridge,
bog, rough descents and lakeside banks, before the final twisting paths back down to the village.
Todays race was won by Miranda Grant of Eryri in 1.54.13 and Lloyd Taggart of Manx Fell Runners in 1.34.09, and both have set quality marks
to be challenged in the future.
The final race of the North Wales Series takes place on Sunday 23rd October at Clwydian Hills, Cilcain, after which the AGM will be held, all members are welcome.
Jez Brown of Buckley leading them away.
