Eryri's Iain Ridgway made an encouraging debut for the Welsh Ultra Road Running team at the Celtic International 100km race in Galway Ireland on Saturday 28th March, with international teams from England, Germany, Ireland, Scotland as well as Wales taking part. Running on a mind boggling there and back 2km loop course along the seashore, and despite the weather being cold and breezy with the occassional sleet shower, Iain completed the race in 7:49:30 for 11th place overall, Iain had the added satisfaction of being the first Welsh finisher ahead of Buckley's John Pares 8:40:28. The race was won by renowned ultra runner Jez Bragg (England) in an excellent time of 6:58:00.
Well done Iain.
