THE Cader Idris Fell Race is one of the main fixtures of the year in Wales and this year there was a large field assembled in Dolgellau for this classic.

Denbigh Harrier Mari Williams took on her first big mountain race and seemed unperturbed by the steep and craggy route.

The first Harrier home was Tony Wood, who like David Baugh and Sioned Lloyd who followed him, still had the effects of the previous week’s race in his legs.

It was a great day in the mountains boasting excellent views, with great camaraderie throughout.

Harriers' results: 64, Anthony Wood 1-55.28; 87, David Baugh 2-00.08; 184, Mari Williams 2-23.12; 194, Sioned Griffiths 2-26.52.

Chris Baldwin took part in the Welsh senior and inter regional trail running championships at Builth Wells.

While the race was 10k in length, the steep inclines made it feel a lot longer.

Baldwin was fourth in his M65 age category.

There were perfect conditions on the three versions of the undulating 2 Lakes races held at Llyn Brenig, and taking in Llyn Alwen for the longer distances.

First underway was the half-marathon, where it was a lonely race for Melina Morris.

Despite this, she finished as the third lady and ninth overall in 1-48.58.

Next off was the 10k, with Duncan Jones (1st M60) finishing ninth overall and the first Harrier in 49.52, which was quicker than his time last year.

Fred Jones (2nd M60) was 12th over the line in 51.39 as he builds up his mileage, while Dawn Marshall had a competitive race all the way around to finish two seconds ahead of her nearest competitor in a sprint finish.

Her time was 63.10.

Rebekah Dumayne raced in the green of Denbigh Harriers for the first time and she looked very comfortable as she finished in 68.08.

Turning to the 5k and Caroline Dawe also pulled on a Harriers' vest for the first time.

She was the second lady and sixth overall in 29.40.

There were 11 Denbigh Harriers racing in the Chester Half Marathon on Sunday.

While it was a humid day, luckily there was no wind.

This is a huge race with thousands of competitors from around the UK taking part, so it was a real achievement for Emma Collins to win her F55 category.

Harriers' results: 23, Shaun Hughes 1-18.02; 228, Joe Welch 1-30.40; 373, Philip Hayes 1-35.25; 579, Emma Collins (1st FV55) 1-39.27; 1354,
