Snowdon Supercup 2015

19/07/2015

Jo simply can't keep off those Welsh mountains and reported on her latest Snowdon mountain race performance as follows ...... 

"The Snowdon mountain race has grown and grown over the last 40 years, so the weekend is now a festival of running events. As part of this festival, there is an invitational uphill only race, known as the "Snowdon Super Cup", in which 32 runners were invited to climb almost 1000m over the course of 5 miles to the summit of the mountain.

 

Having been unable to accept the invite in the past, Jo Zakrzewski (despite not feeling fully recovered from the Dragon's Back race) decided to give it a go this year. The runners started on a flat field in Llanberis, but were soon sent up a steep road with a gradient of about 1 in 3, which certainly got the pulserate up. In just a few hundred yards they turned off onto the path that wound up to the summit. It was a totally different route from the "climb" of Crib Goch that Jo had done on the first day of the Dragon's Back, so was in theory all "runnable" (if you like running up steep steps and scree slopes).

 

The race was won by Max Nicholls (running for Salomon) and Emmie Collinge (representing Italy......who actually took 12s off the ladies' ascent record which was previously set in 1993). Jo managed to "run" almost every step of the way in 4th place, but unfortunately did not hear a Welsh lady closing her down in the cloud, as she could not differentiate her powerwalking footfall from those of the many ascending tourists. She was unable to respond in the last 100m so finished 5s behind in a very creditable 5th place in a time of 57.34."

 

Well done Jo!!
