Information for XC Fixture 3 – 18 November 2018

Information copied from the SYCAA website, numbers still available for £8.

The courses are more or less the same as at the fixture held there in 2016. A lot of work has been done to reinstate the lakes in the park and the spreading out of dredged lake sediment has made sections of the start straight less even than in previous years.

Cannon Hall is a great course for spectators and the Pavilion Cafe on the edge of the car Park has great cakes!

Results update 31 October 2018 – Snowdonia Marathon, Worksop Half, Poppy 10k and parkruns

Club championships for 2019 will be available soon.  Any results missing let me know.

Snowdonia Marathon – 27 October 2018

Tough challenging race this one, a lot of climbing, freezing cold, windy in the second half and occasional hail storms.  Great support from Janet Hampson.

Luke wanted to get a marathon in before he turned 40 and this really was his last chance, job done.  Rose wanted to complete a marathon having had a couple of DNF and following advise from DAC Ultra Captain Martin Hookway Rose got her nutrition sorted this time.  Martin had a poor run last year and was determined to have a better run this time, and he did finishing 20 minutes faster than last year.  Chris had a super run, finishing only 5 minutes off his marathon PB.

You can watch the race on TV at the following link. Continue reading
