Great Arete Midweek Series - Race 4 Nant Peris

Hands up to anyone whose quads weren’t screaming on Wednesday!

Having discovered the course last year while working in Nant I thought the least I could do was rope in ‘Arwel’s Angels’ for the time keeping and do my first mid week race in 2 years. ½ way up the climb, a weeks good living in Tenerife, marking the course & sitting doing the registration for an hour suddenly had their effect! Nearly beaten to the summit by the 1st junior, 50 & 60 ladies the realisation had not only the wheels fallen off but they had also gone off down the hill without me!

Victory convincingly went to Rob Greenwood, Paul Jenkins on and Dafydd Whiteside Thomas unstoppable in the 40’s and 60’s while a surprise over 50 victory went to Ross “Mr 72 min” Powell, Henry Williams taking the under 16 in 9th.

In the ladies Becky Law continued to dominate from the “Bog Trotter” and “JJ” with Maggie Oliver, Bridget Ripley and Lisa Peters taking the 60, 50 and junior.

Next race Moel Y Gest Porthmadog on May 12th followed by Aber on May 26th.
