This year’s race results have finally been posted to the Results page here, apologies for the delay. The team and checkpoint split times have been included where we have them.
Another successful event done and dusted. As in previous years the event came together with the support of dedicated volunteers who brought you the opportunity to experience of the toughest events in the police calendar.
We also managed to bring you some good weather for a change, which came as a surprise to many, especially since there was a distinct lack of sun cream applied in the morning!
The overall win went to Cumbria Constabulary yet again in a solid time of 5hrs 19mins. The holders of the course record are beginning to make a habit of this, can you come and beat them next year? Speaking of next year, the 2018 race date has been confirmed, Saturday 7th July. See you there.
Watch this space for the full results which will be posted as soon as they’re finalised.
Well folks, it’s not long to go until this years race. 48 teams at the last count, so it’s looking like there’ll be some strong competition out there.
The pre-race briefing will be on the Friday evening, 1845 for 1900 start, Friday 30th June 2017, at the Community Centre, Llanberis, LL55 4UR (this is Race HQ).
Remember to eat! There are food outlets in Llanberis, ranging from takeaways, cafes to hotel restaurants. Pete’s Eats cafe closes at 2000 so don’t leave it till after the briefing.
Remember to pay for your parking in the Centre carpark, and parking by competitors in the race field is not alllowed, as we get into trouble with the owner.
And finally… remember to enjoy the experience. For some of you there may be some pain and suffering along the way, but the sense of achievement at the finish is a worthy prize.
Pob lwc i chi gyd / Good luck to you all.
As you aware the entry has been open for a number of weeks for this iconic event. We know that owing to the nature of our job, it’s often difficult to sort out leave and time off, etc. To allow us to order the correct number of T shirts, mugs, meals, etc., we need to know the number of teams entering as early as we can. We’d be grateful if teams intending to enter could please do so as soon as possible, or at least indicate their intention to do so.
If you can enter online that would be ideal.
Many thanks, and looking forward to seeing you again in Llanberis.
For all those eager to enter this year’s event, be aware that entries will open on the 1st March. The entry form will be added to the entry page at that time.
In the meantime you can get some winter training in after your Christmas excesses, and tell yourself that this year you’ll be super fit and it won’t hurt as much!
Hopefully all injuries, physical and mental, incurred at this year’s event are now healed. …so you’re ready for more of the same next year?
Next years date has been set in slate. ..
