Welsh Castles Relay 2015

As ever 20 runners, their supporters, supporters families and various others have just had a fantastic weekend taking part in the Welsh Castles Relay.

A huge thank you goes to all who participated, who ferried and who marshalled on Leg 18.

The provisional results have us placed 9th – a great result for a little club – when you consider the size of some of the opposition clubs.

There are lots of pictures already in the new BAC Flickr site – any who took pics please feel free to upload your snaps to the site

Here’s one pic that I think just captures the spirit that is WCR – Simon Osbourne having more fun that anyone running a Mountain Stage should really be having I suspect….
