FORGET about the super Sunday of Wimbledon, cricket and the Tour de France!

Sunday was also a big day of running for 14 Denbigh Harriers in Snowdonia.

The early starters were Peter Lester-Owen and David Jones, who competed in the mighty ultra race, climbing 7,000 feet of rough terrain over 37 miles.

This went 10 miles or so more than the marathon, which itself is longer than the official marathon distance.

David Jones (9-42) arrived back in Llanberis a bit before Peter (9-49) having run most of the race together.

Then there were the marathon runners, who had to climb 5,250 feet over their 27.4 miles.

The Harriers were led home by Adam McDonnell in a great time of 5-17 in his first proper mountain run.

He was followed in by Melina Morris (6-14), Sioned Griffiths (6-24), Katy Baugh (6-32), Menai Baugh (7-04) and Anwen Brown (7-44), who was running her first marathon of any kind.

These were great achievements from them all on this very hard course.

There were five Harriers running the half-marathon which, after taking the runners up and down Snowdon, gave them a nasty climb up the Llanberis quarry before the finish.

Emma Collins crossed the finishing line in 2-33, followed by Roger Snaith (3-32), David Spencer (3-47), Dawn Marshall and Caroline Ann Parry (both in 4-21).

In further action, Luke Hughes ran the 10k race at the same event, finishing in 1-03.

On July 10, six Harriers took part in the scenic Druid fell race, which starts and finishes by the Druid Inn, in Llanferres.

The route climbs from the pub up to the top of Foel Fenlli and involves a loop around the hill before returning the same way.

This involves a climb of nearly 1,200 feet over five miles.

There were good conditions for this well-established fell race, although some unexpected showers made the course slippery in parts.

With good performances by all, Tony Wood came home an impressive 11th in 40.25.

Other Harriers' results: 58, Duncan Jones 49.10; 64, Katy Baugh 49.57; 65, Tony Benton 50.13; 75, Ruari Benton 53.25; 80, Menai Baugh (1st F60) 54.42.

Parkrun results:

Kingston: 151, Sian Pritchard 26.21.

Conwy: 2, Joseph Welch 18.27 (pb); 14, David Baugh 20.42; 213, John Llewelyn Thomas 30.43 (pb).
