Some 12 members of March AC travelled to Wales on Friday to tackle the challenging and gruelling Snowdonia marathon on Saturday, along with six friends and family members as support crew.  

They woke up to gale force winds and rain which continued throughout the race for several hours, starting the race in rain ponchos but finishing with huge smiles on their faces. Two of the climbs were 2,400 feet.

Polly Boyd and Scott Bywater took on their first marathon. Lavinia Seward got second in age category.

Times: Mick Stacey 3hr 43mins, Tom Orr 4hrs 30mins, Michelle Seward 4hrs 31 mins, Dawn Veal 4hrs 46mins, Gaelle Bryant 4hrs 47mins, Polly Boyd 5hrs 10mins, Tim Boyd 5hrs 10mins, Scott Bywater 5hrs 21mins, Fay Scrivener 5hrs 28mins, Lavinia Seward 5hrs 59mins, Suzanne Orr 6hrs 42mins, Pat Brown 7hrs 32mins.
