Two years ago, Ian, Ron, Lloyd and I represented South Wales at the same event when held at Lletty, North Wales. Ron in his role as South Wales Fell Running Manager is hoping that we can put together an even more formidable outfit :unsure:
So - who is up for it?

Venue: Errwood Sailing Club, Goyt Valley.

I could easily be persuaded to go. The fell and XC races have helped my fitness a lot so far this year :)

Dear All
In my capacity as South Wales Region Mountain Running Secretary, I would like to take a team to compete in the Intercounties Fell Running Championships, which is being held in conjunction with the Shining Tor race in the Peak District on Saturday 19th May. If you qualify for South Wales, and are interested in competing can you let me know.

East Wales teams not taking part this year due to the teams not being entered on time. Really disapointed as I was looking forward to this race.

That was a shame Richard, some East Walians did turn up and race though. A good day out, not really a typical fell race in terms of how we tend to view them in the Beacons (I kept waiting for the steep climb to a summit) but very runnable. Wicked uphill finish, there should be a rule that fell races end at the foot of the last descent.

When Andi Jones (2:15 Marathon) is only third, you could say that.

Yes a great event today, weather was good too which meant a relaxing of the kit requirements. Chuffed with my run on such a challenging course, great views and a good banter afterwards.

Gareth was suffering with stomach problems and needs to take it easy this week to recover for the Rack Raid next weekend B)
