Despite only returning to running a few weeks ago after a long layoff with a stress fracture, Gary Priestley ran the GB trial race for this years World Mountain Running Champs at Llanberis.
The uphill only course followed the Ranger Path to the top of Garnedd Ugain for a total of 6.8 miles and 3563 feet of climb.
No doubt Gary would have been disappointed with his 26th position in a field of top fell, mountain and road runners, but off so little training this promises much more for the future.
