While the rest of us were having a leisurely stroll in Bridgnorth, Eryri's Iain Ridgway and Richard Roberts were a bit further away in Austria representing Wales along with Wrecsam Tri's Matt Gilbert and Cardiff AC's Dic Evans in the tough Kaisermarathon a 26.2mile mountain marathon which was fairly flat for the first twenty miles before getting seriously steeper for the last six! Matt Gilbert was the first Welsh athlete to finish in 3:40 with Iain pipping Richard in the finishing funnel with 20 yards to go as both finished in a time of 3:54. Dic meanwhile had a good run to finish 1st MV/60 in 4:25, Dic said it was the hardest race that he had ever done!
The times are approximate, full results to follow. I am sure Iain will do a full report when he limps home!
Well done lads.
