RUNNERS from Tamar Trails conquered the Snowdonia Trail marathon.

The event has a trail marathon, ultra marathon, half marathon and 10K, all starting and finishing in Llanberis.

The trail marathon ascends 1,685 metres over 26 miles of iconic and spectacular trails, circumnavigating and climbing Wales’ highest peak, Snowdon. The incredible route explores the trails, gorgeous panoramic views and tough climbs that make Snowdonia National Park such a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts.

The half marathon option takes in many of the fantastic routes and trails as the half marathon, but ascends Snowdon via the Snowdon Ranger route, rather than the PyG track.

The 10K skirts the base of Snowdon before returning past Dolbadarn castle and into Padarn Country Park and the heart of the Dinorwig slate quarries.

In the ultra marathon, Claire Woods was first female home in 7.45.07, followed by Colin Kirk-Potter 8.16.02 as second male 45 and by Mell Green in 8.43.04.

In the marathon was Andrew Powell (5.28.34) in 99th place out of 659, Stuart Queen (5.59.31) 187th place, Sarah Whittaker (6.46.01) 374th, Paul Evenden and Jason Shipton both in at (7.01.26) 443rd and 444th, Paul Williams (7.49.45) 562nd, followed by Susannah Boulle and Sam Clifford (7.54.24) 572nd and 573rd, then Richard Best and Sarah Tippett in (8.04.01) 589th and 590th.

In the half marathon Harrison Kirkman won two age categories — under 20s and 23s with a time of 3.12.48, coming 345 out of 759.

Sarah Holland (3.24.42) was 431rd, Paul Rogers (3.27.14) 449th, Debbie Ashton (3.43.23) 537 followed by her husband Paul Ashton (3.43.25) 538, Lisa Nickle (3.59.15) 600th, Laura Kirk-Potter and Marta Killey (both 4.33.04) 687th and 688th, then the last three were Louise Cheetham, Samantha Antolic and Donna Baker who were running this trail half marathon to raise money for a new school hall at Gulworthy Primary School.

They have only been running for two years and have done a half marathon but never one like this before — they all came home in 4.36.38, places were 691, 692 and 693.

Their link to their page to donate is and so far they have raised £470 towards the new hall.
