Harriers WinningTeam

Mark Ford finished in third place in the individual mens championship and Faye Roberts finished third in the ladies championship. A fantastic achievement by the Harriers all the more impressive given the extremely tough conditions throughout all of the races following the wettest year on record.

A big thank you to all who helped set up the race and marshall on the day with a special mention for the efforts of Roy Gooderson as Race Director and John Hartley as Acting Supreme Chief Marshall ( in the absence of the normal? Supreme Chief Marshall, Steve Clark, who was unavoidably detained on Crib Goch).

Harriers who raced at Blean Woods were:
