Bowline CC Welsh 1000m race meet (04 - 05 June 2011)

Bowline CC runners

Welsh 1000m Peaks Race was held on 4th June, 2011, where competitors run through all the five 1000-metres peaks in Snowdonia (or Wales). Five Bowliners participated it (and all of them climbed on the following day), and another six stayed in the weekend in our lovely hut. Two of the latter five did a supporting run in the middle of night for their friends' attempt of Paddy Buckley Round (an extremely tough fell-running challenge in North Wales; supporting runners' role is by no means easy, either — running with challengers on hilly and rough terrains for a few hours, carrying water, waterproof etc), then went biking the following morning. And I myself tried on my dream climbing route.

Bowline CC Easter Cornish meet 2011 (21 April – 2 May)

Climbing on granite in Cornish sea-cliffs is arguably the best in the country; only the potential down side is Cornwall tends to be wet. The weather is always a gamble, and this time it turned out to be … marvellous! Out of 12 days we had 2 days of foul weather and 1 showery day, and that was it. It could not have been better, really.

In a word, it turned out to be a great meet!

The weather could have been better, nevertheless we had a marvellous time. It was a shame only Ed, Zoe and I, as well as an ex-Bowliner Paul "Luke" for the last couple of days, made it. I sincerely thank Ed and Zoe for organising such a lovely meet!!
