All three Eryri Harriers who represented the club in the Trofeo Vanoni Relays on Sunday 25th October returned home a bit worse for wear, and no it wasn't the beer but a virus that was going around! The relay's held in our twinned club town of Morbegno was again well represented by several international teams. The Eryri team of Brendan Rothery who ran the 1st (7km) leg in 35:36 followed by Arwel Lewis on the 2nd leg 37:41 with Gwyn Williams 40:48 on the last leg finished 51st of the 128 teams competing, the Snowdon race team of Danny Hope 31:35, Ian Holmes 31:16 and Murray Strain 31:41 finished 5th, Julien Rancon ran the fastest leg 29:31. Not satisfied with only running the one leg, Arwel also ended up running the third leg for Adrian Woods team having just completed his own 2nd leg! despite losing a couple of minutes changing race numbers Arwel clocked 43:21 as Adrian's team were placed 78th. Except for the virus! the Eryri trio were well received at the Hotel Margna by the proprietor Marco whom Arwel presented with a Welsh slate clock and CSI Morbegno whom Arwel presented with a picture of Llyn Padarn. To cap it all lovely sunny weather throughout the trip.
