Ring O'Fire coastal ultra-marathon for St David's Hospice 1st - 3rd Sept 2023.

Image
Ring O' Fire Holyhead Breakwater Country Park Event by  St David's Hospice Holyhead Breakwater Country Park Tickets www.ringofire.co.uk/signup.asp https://donhaleblog.blogspot.com www.welshmastersathletics.co.uk   Public: Anyone. Ring O’ Fire is a coastal ultra-marathon which takes runners on an extraordinary 135-mile journey around the Isle of Anglesey. The epic foot race is staged over three consecutive days and follows the rugged and spectacular Anglesey Coastal Path. Almost the entire coastline of Anglesey has been designated an “Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty”. Set against the dramatic backdrop of Snowdonia Mountain range, runners will challenge themselves in some of the most awe-inspiring coastal scenery in the British Isles. Beauty aside, the extreme distance and variable terrain has sealed the race’s reputation as one of the most challenging ultra-marathons in the British Isles. ๐—ฅ๐—”๐—–๐—˜   ๐——๐—˜๐—ง๐—”๐—œ๐—Ÿ๐—ฆ: - ๐——๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฒ  – 01/09/2023 – 03/09/2023 ๐—ฅ๐—ฒ๐—ด๐—ถ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ

Report courtesy of the Welsh Masters team  manager  Bernie Jones. Although England came out on top in the overall Team Competition there were some great performances by Welsh Athletes in the latest Masters Internationals.The 5km international, held within the very fast and popular Mid Cheshire 5km, was won by England’s Ian Lawton (Mersesyside Tri ) but Matt Rees (Swansea) had a great run to lead the Welsh contingent home finishing in 14-53 with clubmate Matt Harvey not far behind in 15-09. As usual our first woman home was Donna Morris (Builth) who ran 17-38.   Individual podiums were sparse as England had chosen very strong teams but once again Lee Aherne (Parc Bryn Bach) showed his class by winning the M55 age group with a 16-43 run and Gordon Jones (Prestatyn) was an emphatic winner of the M65 category in 18-12. There were two other podium place
