Tough running at Pen Llyn Winter Ultra event.

Report by Don Hale.


Three NWRRC endurance athletes competed in the gruelling Pen Llyn Winter Ultra trail race last Saturday. 

Run over a challenging and undulating 37.5-mile course out and back from Pwllheli golf club, with over 5,000 ft of elevation, the event attracted 218 intrepid starters and 129 hardy finishers.

Local runners included Marc Davies finished 14th overall and he was the 12th U50 cat in 6 hours 35 minutes 37 seconds, and Karl Morris was 33rd and the 26th U50 runner in 7.08.56, with Jon Dalzell 67th overall and the 40th U50 cat in 7.55.18.

After the race, Karl Morris confirmed ‘A great route with a fair-few climbs. I ran a strong race – all 37-miles of it! Thanks to Huw Williams and all the team for putting on a great race.’ And his colleague Jon Dalzell described the event as ‘brutal.’

*The race winner was Jon Shield in 5.25.19, with 2nd Sam Walsh 5.46.11, and 3rd was Julian Ayres 5.56.30. This is the link to the provisional results:
