Those thinking of a PB at the normally fast Dolgellau 5 Mile race on Saturday 25th July were disappointed to find that the course had been remeasured and lengthened! Instead of starting the race near the top of the hill, the race start was moved to the bottom and to cap it all there was a 400m diversion before the A470 which included running around a traffic cone! Add to that the exorbitant race day entry fee of £10 for attached and £12 for unattached runners it is no wonder more and more runners are turning to the fells and triathlons! Still the race was well organised and won by Eryri's Rob Samuel in a time of 26:16 well clear of runner up Luke Northall (Tipton) 27:49. Other Eryri placings/times: 10th (2nd MV/50) Arwel Lewis 30:52. 26th (1st MV/65) Don Williams 35:05 and 40th Mervyn Williams 37:44.
There were 112 finishers.
