—Snowdon Mountain Race.

report by Alistair McQueen

Chris Roberts

Nine Harriers took to Wales this weekend (15/16 July) to experience the famous Snowdon Race – an international fell race, 10 miles up (and down!) all 3,560 feet of Mount Snowdon – the highest mountain in Wales. This was the race’s 42nd year.

Tom Ratcliffe

Chris Roberts, Barry Atkinson, Tom Ratcliffe and Richard Tarrega ran the race, and the cheerleaders were Nik Tarrega, Scout Adkin, Stef Durkin, Sam Allin, and Alistair McQueen. Tom’s brother, Sam joined the adventure too.

The weather on race-day was “moist”. Low cloud and drizzle covered the mountain, but that did not deter our brave band of heroic Harriers.

600 runners from all over Europe stood on the start line. Our four running Harriers performed brilliantly. First home in 39th place was Men’s Captain Chris Roberts in a time of 1:19:11. Tom Ratcliffe followed in 1:30:33. Barry Atkinson was first male-55 in 1:32:21. And Club Secretary Richard Tarrega completed the triumph in 1:50:04.

Barry Atkinson


The overall winner of the men’s race was Italy’s Davide Magnani in a time of 1:06:43. The ladies’ race was won by England’s Annie Conway in a time of 1:20:16.

The day was concluded with a hearty celebratory meal and a nail-biting battle of “Connect Four” back at the local youth hostel. The (Scottish) winner of Connect Four has demonstrated great modesty by asking for his victory not to be reported.

Richard Tarrega

Snap !!

By coincidence, staying with us at the same youth hostel was a runner from Aberdeen’s Metro Running Club. They share the same club vest design as us! (See photo of Cliff from Aberdeen Metro with Tom of YKH below). We have challenged Metro to a home and away race. We await their response!

Thanks to Wales for a great weekend.
