Alpine Run 2016
August 8, 2016
This year, for the 6th year running, Tai Calon Community Housing proudly sponsored the Cwm Carnival’s Alpine Run that took place on 6th August.
The Alpine Run is a 1.5-mile run where contestants run up and down the steep slope of the Cefn Manmoel mountain. The run has been an annual event since the early 1970's.
Why would contestants take part? Well, there is a prize of £90 for the winner of the senior race along with a trophy, whilst junior winners are rewarded with medals.
If anyone beats the overall record of 13mins 10secs set by Mike Rose in 1984, they can win a £200 bonus prize sponsored by A1 Tachograph. However, after the 2016 run, no one came close and Mike’s record still stands.
The winners were:
1st Tyran Bruten (18yrs) in 18mins:54secs
2nd Matthew Ellis (24yrs) in 18mins:57secs
3rd Callum Parfitt (19yrs) in 20mins:52secs
1st Anne-Marie Harris (45yrs) in 22mins:20secs
2nd Claire Tinelli (35yrs) in 24mins:38secs
Joint 3rd Melissa Chetri and Amy Jones (20yrs) in 46 mins:11secs
1st Ellis Haynes (14yrs) Gold medal
2nd Liam Clark (14yrs) Silver medal
3rd James Wall (11yrs) Bronze medal
1st Laura Odd (13yrs) Gold medal
