Tom scales new heights

Over half term Tom Wood (U6GLA) competed in the British Fell Running Championships in Snowdonia, where he became the Welsh U23 male champion and was second in the overall male U23 category. 

Following on from this Tom travelled out to Chamonix last week to compete in the Young Race Marathon du Mont Blanc. With little time to acclimatise to the hot weather and altitude Tom competed in the 15km race with a 1200m climb for 18-19 years olds and 20-23 year olds. Tom gave an incredible performance, finishing 6th in his category and 13th overall. A fantastic achievement!
