MOUNTAIN RUNNING NEWS          Moel Siabod        Results

The 'Ultimate Outdoors' Moel Siabod race took place from Capel Curig on Saturday 21st July. Despite the heavy rain and floods in the previous 24 hours, there was a good turnout as the race was a counter in the Welsh Fell Runners Association North Wales Series.
The weather during the race was mild, light winds with occasional rain. With the cloud level hovering around the summit and very wet and slippery conditions underfoot, this made for a very challenging race. Unfortunately, with the river in spate it was not possible to have the usual run through the river at the finish which most of the runners and spectators look forward to.
The men's race was won by Richard Roberts of Eryri in a time of 53 minutes and 36 seconds.
Steve Gilliland of Bro Dysynni was 2nd (also 1st over 40) in 57.26 and Peter O'Brien of Eryri 3rd in 58.10. First over 50 was Stephen Bellis of Buckley in 61.34 and the over 60 category was won by Don Williams of Eryri in 63.50.
In the ladies race, Anna Frost of Wrexham won with a stunning run finishing 2nd overall in 55.47. Andrea Roberts of Eryri finished 2nd in a time of 65.22 and Ruth Metcalfe of Eryri was 3rd in 68.33. The over 40 category was won by Sandra Rowlands of Clwydian in 75.31 and first over 50 was Maggie Oliver of Eryri in 80.52.
