Tregaron and it’s surrounding beautiful countryside set the scene for the Annual Cors Caron Half Marathon.

An undulating course predominantly ran on tarmac with the exception of a three-mile stretch along the old Tregaron to Aberystwyth railway line but now part of the stunning Cors Caron Nature Reserve, attracted 118 runners of which 22 represented Sarn Helen Running Club.

This proved to be another successful day for Sarn Helen Club Runners with brilliant results achieved: V40 winner and 2nd overall was Dylan Lewis; 40 2nd position went to Simon Hall; 1st in the V50 category went to Mike Davies and 3rd to Arwyn Davies.
