The fifth and penultimate race in in the 2016 series was held at Penbedw Estate near Mold on 3rd July 2016.
The weather on the day was great, as we've become accustom to on race day at Up Hill Down Dale. Although it seemed more like winter in the days leading up to the race with gale force winds and cold temperatures, mainly due to wind chill. Close to 150 runners took part in the two races on the day, a 10km & a 20km race.
The runners found both routes challenging and rewarding. Penbedw Estate is a beautiful location.
Some comments from the runners and spectators where - "Great route, one of the best!", "A lovely atmosphere" and "defiantly in my top 5 races of all time!"
