A HARDY group of five Bourton Roadrunners chose to tackle the notoriously tough and beautiful Snowdonia Marathon (aided by an equally hardy support team).
Race-day brought the inevitable wind and rain, but the Bourton contingent took the weather in their stride, with all performing incredibly well. Lucy Walmsley fought a battle at the head of the ladies' race.
Despite the leading lady quickly establishing a two-minute lead, Lucy managed to close the gap to less than a minute for a period.
After a gruelling fight, Lucy finished second lady in an outstanding 3:11.34.
