ROB MAKES IT FOUR RACE WINS IN A ROW FOR ERYRI
19 Eryri Harriers were amongst the 381 Finishers in Sunday’s Borders League 5 mile event at Pensarn, Nr Abergele on a dry but, windy morning. Rob Samuel led the way for Eryri on his comeback race following his calf injury at the Caernarfon 10k race last August. Rob battled hard for the win in a very good time, considering the conditions of 25.46  Rob’s win made it four race wins in a row for Eryri in the Borders League following race wins for Matt Roberts at Caernarfon and Owen Roberts double success at Connahs Quay and Birkenhead Park. Rob  was followed home by::22nd Dilwyn Powell-Jones.27.50. 55th Ian Edwards 29.57. 128th Ali Chant 33.28. 130th Dylan Huws 33.38. 144th Anthony Davies 34.14. 148th Arwel Lewis 34.25. 164th Jacki Artist 34.54. 206th Helen Blair 36.45. 231st Jess Mullen 38.35. 262nd Gwenllian Dafydd 39.49. 283rd Gwyn Mossley 40.59. 291st Nia Meleri-Edwards 41.30. 298th Allison Donnelly 42.16. 299th Kate Katie Wilby 42.21. 304th Jenny Williamson 42.33. 348th Emyr Davies 46.23. 352nd Maggie Oliver 47.01 & 371st Roy Jardine 51.21. Well Done All. A special mention to those who also represented the club at the Shrewsbury XC League race the previous day.
In the overall team standings, Eryri’s men, with three races to go are still well placed for promotion, currently placed 2nd in Division Two with 2075pts ahead of Abergele 3567pts. Eryri’s women are currently placed 4th in Division Two with 576pts. Both Eryri’s men and women lead the way in the Improvers Trophy standings.
A change of venue for the next event on Sunday 15th March from Helsby to Wrexham for a 11.00am start.

Borders Road Running League this Sunday

The 4th race of the  2019/20 season takes place at Pensarn, nr Abergele this Sunday 12th January at 11.00am. A nice flat course on the usual 5 mile race route though, because of the numbers expected to be competing on the day, the event will be shortened slightly.
It is imperative that we get our club members out to run in this event as both our men and women seek promotion. The event will also be the club’s first Road Running Championships counter.
