2014

We had a good turn out this year with a 66 runners and some impressive times. John Bowie’s old course record that had stood for three years was beaten by a number of runners. Lloyd Taggart, O40M, MFR, was first home with a time of 42.43, beating the previous course record by a full four minutes. Andrea Rowlands, O40F, Eryri, successfully defended and beat her own female record with a time of 51.26. 


The weather was variable and most runners made it back before the rain showers. Apart from a few gorse scratches everyone made it back in one piece. Overall a good day was had by all. 
We would like to thank the marshals for their help and for looking after everyone so well. A special thanks goes to the Spa in Glyn Ceiriog and Chirk for their very generous donations towards the prizes, also to The Oak Y Dderwen pub in Glyn Ceiriog. Photos will be displayed on the website canolfanceiriog.org. We would like to thank everyone for coming, all the money raised goes towards the running costs of the community centre. We look forward to seeing you again next year. Diolch yn Fawr.

2011

A beautiful autumn day in the Ceiriog valley brought a record number of entrants, from all over the country, to the 3rd 'Ceiriog Canter' fell run on 15th October 2011. Having overcome initial organisational difficulties that had hampered previous years, the 2011 event ran very smoothly indeed, with everyone running the same route! Nigel and Andrea Rowlands of the Clwydian Range Runners and Eryri Harriers described the route as, "a tough and challenging course with plenty of marshals to keep us all on track!" 

A new course record was set by Jon Bowie of Trefonen, Oswestry, and a member of the Trismart club. He completed the run in a very impressive 46.44m! This was approximately 2.30m ahead of second place runner Sam Roberts, who was the category winner for the under 23 males. Andrea Rowlands also established a new course record for the women, completing the course in a challenging 52.47m. 

The scenic 10.7 km fell run started at the Canolfan Ceiriog Centre which is in Glyn Ceiriog, near Llangollen. The route climbed up from the village onto the moors, taking in spectacular views from the top of Y Foel (358 meters, over 1100 feet above the village). Due to a dry summer the majority of the fell was hard under foot which made for excellent running conditions. The course returned to the village, via a steep forest track, where a warm welcome awaited each runner as they triumphantly crossed the line. Other than a few reports of gorse prickles, there was only one individual injured, Naithan Keeping from Birmingham, and even he managed to walk gallantly back to the finish! Beverages and homemade cake were on sale at the centre to replace spent energy! 

The event was wholly reliant upon the generosity and hard work of the sponsors and marshals respectively, to whom we owe a great deal of thanks. We worked together as an excellent team to develop an event that was both slick and enjoyable! As a result, we are looking forward to next years 'Ceiriog Canter', the date for which is now set for Saturday 13th October 2012.
