Lake Vrmway Half Marathon 10th September 2017


In 1988 Mr David Rowlands, treasurer of St Wddyn’s Church at Llanwddyn made a centenary appeal to raise money towards church roof and other repairs.

He placed this appeal in the Advertiser newspaper where Mr Doug Morris of the Oswestry Olympians read the appeal and contacted David Rowlands offering to organise a half marathon for the appeal. The rest, as they say is history.

This year’s race was held on the rather wet Sunday afternoon of September 10th. 1387 runners set out on the race under the starting orders of GARY HUGGINS, friend of both race and community.

Leanne Alston was our only entrant and a big well done to you, Leanne finished in a speedy 1:49:44 coming home in 457th place.
