Welsh Castles Relay - a message from The Chairman..

Les Croupiers Running Club would like to thank everyone who took part in, made possible and supported in any way this year’s Welsh Castles Relay. The weather was perfect for spectating, slightly trickier if helping out, but rather warm for those who ran. Bravo all of you who did, and a special thanks to our medical team and those who helped take care of others when the going did get tough, the ‘Spirit of the Castles’ very much in evidence this weekend. 

Congratulations to Sale Harriers for winning the WCR Open, Ladies and Mountain Kings Competitions, a remarkable achievement. Croups would also like to apologise to Sale for a problem with the results process which resulted in Croups rather than Sale being presented with the Ladies prize at the finish. Congratulations also to Swansea Harriers (for winning the Veterans Competition),  Burges Salmon LLP (for taking the Business Class category), Serpentine RC (for winning the Mountain Queens) and Team Bath (this year’s Mountain Monarchs)

The official results can be found here . Any questions regarding should be fed-back to our race results co-ordinator John Upstone via Team Captains. Inevitably there are niggles in organising such a complex event but feedback via Twitter, Facebook, Team Captains and word of mouth suggests it went rather well. Please add to the conversation and tell us what you thought, especially regarding our two new stages (16 and 17) which took us through the heart of the Brecon Beacons this year. As ever we are keen to make the race even safer, more enjoyable, better organised but also competitive next year.

See you in 2019
