    full results and loads of piccies now on web site.
    Fan Y Big results by wednesday I hope - cracking race today! I heaved my guts out all round the summits, trying to keep up with leading Gurkin despite injuries and unfitness, and failed! Mark P superstar smashed record for 2 wins in two days. And my mother in law beat a Gurkha.

    thanks very much to the two race organisers for a terrific weekend of fell running. Two great races with some awesome views once you got to the tops. The Brecon Baecons have certainly got some dramatic looking hills, I espscially enjoyed the final bit of the climb on saturdays race looking up at that big lump of rock towering above, didn't enjoy the descent quite so much!
    I think there'll definitely be another contingent from Essex coming back for next years races.
    thanks andrew
