Welsh Trail Running Champion and Selection for UK Skyrunning Team

Concord student, Beth, has won the Under 20 Welsh Female Trail Running title after competing in the Welsh Trail Running Championships last month. On April 29th, Sixth Form student, Beth, headed to Devil’s Bridge, in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains, to compete in the U20 10km trail race.

“I managed to finish as the first female in the 10km race, and 5th overall”, recalled Beth, “It was a tough race, with a particularly long, steep and rocky ascent. The race was made even harder by the humidity and heat!”.

Following her excellent victory, Beth has been selected to join the UK Skyrunning team, racing in the Youth Skyrunning World Championships. The races will take place in L’Aquila, Italy, in August, and Beth will be competing in the Gran Sasso Vertical Kilometer (3.8km run with 1,033m vertical climb) and the Youth Gran Sasso Skyrace (a 10km run with 1,100m vertical climb).
