Scout and Sarah take on Snowdon

The weather took its toll on the Snowdon hill races on Saturday, with both the new invitation uphill-only Snowdon Super Cup and the main Snowdon International race curtailed to about 2/3rds distance.

Peebles athlete Scout Adkin was fifth to the revised finish of the Snowdon Super Cup in 37.17, with the top two in GB at present taking first and second. Scout was first Under-23 ahead of both this year’s and the 2012 Under-20 European Champions. In the main Snowdon International race, Scout’s Moorfoot clubmate Sarah McCormack was a comfortable winner for Ireland in 55.21.
