Llantisilio fell counter results

Please find attached the results for Race 1 of the Helsby Summer Fell Series, the Llantisilio Mountain Race nr Llangollen.

This race at 6.2 Miles and 2100ft is set in some brilliant scenery and fairly unforgiving on what was a hot April Saturday. With over 90 runners on the start line including five green vests, soon the smiles and banter quickly turned into grimaces of intent as the race begins with a steady ascent that can quickly turn into a climb. Just check out the video linked below.

Race 2 in the fell counter series is the Dinas Bran (AS) race which in the past has been a club favourite.  

Dinas Bran is located in Llangollen and will be held on Wednesday 4th May @6.45pm. Register on the night at Dinas Bran School, Llangollen. (More details will be sent nearer the time)

For those wishing to experience their first fell race this would be a sensible and intriguing first encounter! The race is 4.3mile and 1150ft so would be a great introduction to fell running. Race entry fee is just £4 and includes refreshments and prizes.

Regards

Adair
