Ras yr Aran

Misty and breezy on the ridge from Aran Benllyn to Aran Fawddwy, with a few deep snow drifts, but otherwise conditions not as bad as forecast. A nice day out.

Races over May Bank Holiday Weekend


Rob circulated details of this last week - Red Kite Challenge


Haughmond Handicap Chase - this was a good event last year, if all goes to plan everyone finishes together

Lake Vyrnwy Half Marathon 12th September

Entry form now available, very popular event and will fill up quickly

Rhayader Round the Lakes

A couple of Buckley-ites made the journey down to Rhayader to take part in one of Runners World's 'most scenic races'. Thankfully this description turned out to be true as it kept you from thinking about the pain that you were going through - some more than others.

Shaun had an excellent run coming 35th in 2hr 23mins
Dave was next in 2hr 41mins, but just thankful to get to the end
and Rob completed the intrepid team in 3hr 25mins

One for the calendar for next year !!
