Congratulations to Tom Jones who ran in the 14 mile Rotary Challenge of Race the Train on Saturday, August 18th and also to Dave Rice, Dave Seabourne, Doris O'Keefe, Nicky Burgess, Jamie Evans and Tim Chesworth who all ran in the 10k Quarry Challenge of Race the Train.
Conditions for the 10k Quarry race in the morning were fairly reasonable for running as although still petty warm, the overcast skies and odd drizzle of rain prevented too much overheating. The heavy rain during the night however provided some very muddy and slippery sufaces to contend with which certainly made for some very precarious moments!
The afternoon 14 mile Rotary Challenge race was a different matter and with the sun beating down for most of the time runners had to cope with some very hot conditions and huge congratulations must go to all who took up the challenge.
Thanks of course to the Rotary Club of Tywyn for organising yet another great 'Race the Train' event... and check out details for next year's 30th Race the Train on race the train website
well done all!
