Brynkinalt 2017 Trail Running Race Report

Brynkinalt 2017 took place 19th March and was the first race in the 2017 Up Hill Down Dale series. The great weather we all enjoyed on race days last year continued into 2017. The terrible forecast stayed away and it was a sunny and warm day. Lets hope it continues for the rest of the year!
Around 200 runners entered the race around the beautiful grounds, almost 100% up on last years entries. There were 3 races on this years event, with a 10km, 20km, and for the first year a 5km race was included and was a great success!

The 20km race started at 10:30am and was won by Richard Hunter (running for Shropshire Shufflers) in a time of 01:26:02 and by Susan Fourie (running for Chester Triathlon Club) in a time of 01:37:44.
The 10km race started at 11am and was won by Steffan Owen (running for Meirionydd Running Club) in a time of 00:46:01 and by Elizabeth Crichton in a time of 00:46:33.
The 5km race started at 11:15am and was won by Tanya Wilson in a time of 00:24:41 and Drew Spellar in a time of 00:27:05
