The King Johns Castle on Saturday 20th September was our 8th Fell Counter of the season. This is a great race organised by John Linley which starts from the Raven Inn at Llanarmon yn lal. Full results can be found below. I’ve included the full results as they are not yet available online.
Well done to David Feakes and Rachel Arnold who took the full fell counter honours. In Rachel’s words “Great race, small field , homemade soup sitting outside pub at end. Don’t think he has me down as a vet 50 but came away with big box of choccies anyway ! Jane A walked a bit with sprained ankle but there were a couple I think doing their first ever fell race – ideal starter” or as Tim Palmer states “Thoroughly enjoyable”
Well done to Rachel and Jenny Palmer who were prize winners on the day and to Jen O’Hare on completion of her first fell race!
