V3K 2017 Results and Images

Familiar names topped the podium at the V3K, the first race in the 2017 Skyrunner UK National Series with Oli Johnson and Sarah Ridgway crossing the line in 7:45:45 and 9:00:52.

The V3K in just 4-years really has become a classic race in the UK circuit offering a tough challenge for those who dare to take it on. The route is comprised of all the peaks over 3000ft in Wales, known as the Welsh 3000’s. Loads of vert, 15-peaks, many kilometres and of course the exposed ridge of Crib Goch make the V3K race a classic.

Both Johnson and Ridgway ran solid races. Both have experience of this course and its route, invaluable when racing full-on and that is reflected in the winning margins. Johnson had a 15-minute margin over 2nd placed Tim Campion-Smith who was closely followed by Joe Mann, their respective times 8:00:07 and 8:02:12 to Johnson’s 7:45:45.

Ridgway dominated the ladies’ race and in many respects was in her own race. Janne Geurts was 2nd lady and Tracy Dean 3rd.
