The Tor y Foel fell race saw the first race on snow covered mountains this year. Nine intrepid foresters braved the wintery weather and completed the 4.5 Mile, 1,150ft course.
The race started just above Talybont reservoir, and wound its way along some forest tracks, through fallen trees, across muddy fields, then up the side of the mountain, with a couple of the usual ‘false’ summits. Jools won the ‘forest race to the summit’ closely followed by Dan and Helen. On the descent, Jools handed Dan the lead, when he lost his glasses and turned an ankle!
Full Forest results:
After 6 races of the WFRA winter series, Jools is in an excellent 6th position overall and 2nd MV40. Helen is 3rd FV40. There are still 2 races to go, so plenty to fight for! Next race is Craig yr Allt, near Caerphilly, on Saturday 23 January
