Rhayader 20

Classic 20 mile road race today. Probably one of the most picturesque road races in the calendar, starts off with 2 quick laps of Rhayader then the climb starts which lasts the best part of 5 miles, from then its undulating, until around 10 miles when the descents start, but a few steep hills, the last one at 18.5 miles always claims a few casualties. Conditions were about spot on really, no rain, not to hot or cold and whilst it was breezy, the winds weren't strong enough to really affect times.

Sarah and I both finished 4th in our respective fields, in times of 2:07:56 and 2:23:57, with Ashley Wager the only other Eryri runner, finishing in 2:40:37.


Superb race, very well organised, good atmosphere, definitly one to be recomended.
