Scout 5th in Snowdon Super Cup and Sarah wins the Snowdon International

The weather took its toll on the Snowdon hill races today with both the new invitation uphill only Snowdon Super Cup and the main Snowdon International race curtailed to about 2/3rds distance due to the weather conditions further up towards the summit. Scout was 5th to the revised finish of the Snowdon Super Cup in 37.17 with the top two in GB at the mo, Clayton and Tunstall, taking 1st and 2nd. She was 1st U23 ahead of both this years U20 European Champion Georgia Malir (37.55) and the champion from 2012 Annabel Mason (38.51).

In the main up and down Snowdon International race Sarah McCormack was a comfortable winner for Ireland in 55.21, more than two minutes ahead of Tess Hill in 2nd. Her time for the ascent was 22s faster than Tunstall's 2nd place time in the uphill only race!
