The very first Caderman, and with wintery weather in June, it set the tone for every Caderman since. The first person to hold the Caderman title was the Chief Organiser – Geraint Rowlands. The course was completed at a very leisurely 4 hours plus, but since there was only one competitor, the title was won by default.
The first truly competitive Caderman. With a full field of competitors, the winner was Dan Rushton who completed the course in what was at the time a Caderman record of 02:21:35. Bearing in mind that Dan chatted with organisers on the hike up to the summit and managed to find the time to write in the mud, it was a great effort.
We nearly lost one of the volunteers on the hike up Cader Idris section as the fog descended low and the volunteer (who shall remain nameless) thought that the summit lay downhill.
With the number of competitors increasing, 2013 proved to be a great year for Caderman. Again, mother nature wasn’t kind as the waves were crashing on the shore in Tywyn, but it did create a great tailwind for the Tal-y-llyn climb. The title was won by Andy Mitchell, who stormed home in 2:14:38 (a Caderman record at the time).
