    Fan Fawr

    It went up. It went down.


    Fast! And short! And STEEEEP!!!

    67 did it, lots forgetting to call their numbers written on their hands as they fell over the finish line. Some did not even bother to put their age on the entry form.

    It's called feral fell-running and its great!

    Re: Fan Fawr

    Was just thinking the other day, if I get fit enough to race soon I would love to turn up for Toffers run .......too late again, maybe next year. Pleased it went well, sounds like a proper old fashioned Welsh race, I bet Toffer is itching to be back up there.

    Did he manage to get the results out before the runners finished and keep everyone happy ?

    Sadly no! The trouble with feral fell races is that the finish marshals have no idea of the finishing order and the times of said feral athletes. I am trying to construct some sort of fiction that is vaguely representative of the events on Saturday

    I was working otherwise I would have been there, as I am running again! In a feral way, but don't suppose that would have gone noticed

    That was a good quick blast on Sat up and down like that.

    Shame I started suffering with a cold and could hardly breath on the way up or down and had no energy so did not very do well. I was that slow our lass thought that I had taken a wrong turn !! - I even had to get our lass to drive home as I was feeling crook and light headed.

    Thanks for another enjoyable race. :thumbup:

    Always a toughie - no chance for respite anywhere ..... as much fun for a pound as you can get these days!

    Anyone know of the results anywhere, fictitious or otherwise?

    I didn't have my watch on, but was number 60 (Matt Morris) I'm guessing, but I reckon about 21 mins mark (maybe a bit less) and was probably about 8th or 9th (ish)???? I nearly caught a chap in the last 100 meters who said "Good job there wasn't any more downhill or you would have caught me!" not that I expect that's particularly useful ......

    Don't know what else I can add ..... maybe we should have a rerun ....:w00t:
