The 'Run'down, Monday 11th December 2017

The 'Run'down - Monday 11th December 2017

Heavy snowfall and freezing conditions led to the cancellation of a number of races this Sunday, including the Turkey Trot, Bradgate Park Cross Country, the Telford 10K and the Bolsover 10K – so this week's slimmed down 'Run'down focuses on runners who were out on Saturday and earlier in the week.

Ultra Marathon from Aberdyfi in Merionyedd to Harlech in Ardudwy

On Saturday, Rob Beers completed a 42 mile multi-terrain Ultra Marathon from Aberdyfi in Merionyedd to Harlech in Ardudwy - not only coming in in 8th place, but also raising £800 for Kidney UK.
