    New Paddy Buckley Record - women

    Just before 4am Saturday 3rd June, Lizzie Richardson of Tanygrisiau set off from Llanberis to attempt the Paddy Buckley Round. She set a blistering pace and kept it up all day to finish in a time of 17 hours 22 minutes and 54 seconds. This knocked an hour and eleven minutes off the previous women's record by Jasmin Paris set in 2016.

    I would imagine that living in Tanygrisiau she would have recced the Moelwyns to death, and know them like the back of her hand. Much of that area is pathless and extremely rough under foot so she probably made some time up there.

    A fantastic achievement.
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    I don't know any more info, just transplanting a post on the UKC/UKH forum. Hope that a bit more info comes out.

    I seem to recall that the Paddy was the one Jasmin sort of snuck in amongst lots of other things, so there may have been a bit more scope in that than her (BG/Ramsey times - but that run by Lizzie is very impressive.
