Breaking: Donnelly and Maddams win at Yr Aran
Round two of the 2011 British Fell Champs saw perfect fell running conditions at Yr Aran in north Wales. The beautiful weather wasn’t predicted, and neither was the winner of the men’s race, as Morgan Donnelly returned from injury for an emphatic win…
The Borrowdale man also broke Tim Davies’ 2009 course record, and the Mercia man had to also settle for second behind Donnelly. Rob Jebb was a close third.
Pippa Maddams made the long trek from the Lakes worthwhile as she easily won the women’s race, and now looks very good to retain her British crowns of 2009 and 2010. Jo Buckley was second, with Mercia’s Mel Price having a stormer in third.
We were there so you can expect a full report, interview with Morgan, images and full results soon on MST.
