Membership fees

Despite the name, the club participates in all disciplines of running, fell, cross country and road and welcomes applications from runners of all abilities to join us. If you are not sure if the club is for you, why not come to one of our training sessions or one of our regular pub runs. You will be under no obligation to join, but you will get a feel for the club and a better idea if the club is for you. You can merely turn up to a training session unannounced, but it would be better if you contacted our club secretary first (details on the contacts page) and let him know that you will be coming and he will make sure that whoever is leading the group will look out for you. If you are an absolute beginner to running, you too are most welcome to join us in one of our sessions, but please contact our secretary first and he will make sure that you will have a programme with which you are comfortable.

Ras Y Moelwyn - 18 April 2015

Richard Treitl ran this race and commented on it as follows:

Ras y Moelwyn (the Moelwyn Race) is an arduous fell run from Blaenau Ffestiniog over the three peaks of Moelwyn Mawr, Moelwyn Bach and Moel yr Hydd. This is a category AM, 10miles, 2799ft, and this year was a counter for the British Fell Running Championships. Because of this, the start was moved to the town centre which created a great atmosphere on a warm, sunny but breezy afternoon.

Needless to say I was near the back of the field for most of the race but managed to finish 350th out of 362 in a time of 2:21:52.  Finley Wild from Lochaber (who I think has won Ben Nevis for the last 5 years on the trot) won in 1:13:09.

Allowing for the slightly longer course due to the town centre start, I estimated I was about a minute faster than last year.
