Lloyd Taggart, Moel-Y-Ci record holder

A race each for the Welsh and English this weekend. (We realise that there may be other races, but can’t find ‘em!). Two classic little races in the shape of Moel-y-Ci in Snowdonia, and Ilkley Moor, both races are 5 miles and should see some fierce racing at the head…
