Inter-regional cross country championships in Brecon

Helen helps the NW team to second

Well done to all runners who represented North Wales at the Inter-regionals yesterday in Brecon – it was muddy as it should be, but drier than expected and a varied course.

Matthew Fortes made an excellent debut for North Wales and ran a consistently strong 3 laps coming in 41st overall and 17th out of the 35 in the MM35 category. In the same 9.4k race, Arwel Lewis also had a strong run and came in 90th overall and 6th out of the 29 in the MM55 category. Well-run, determined laps by both – really well done!

Annabelle McQueen ran in the U17 girls category and worked together with her team mates and came in a brilliant 14th overall, with 3 of her team mates coming in 15th, 16th and 17th – well done ladies!

Becki Law and Helen Blair ran 2 laps of the 6.2k course and came in 41st and 46th, with Helen avoiding any calf problems AND helping the North Wales MV45 team to second place – brilliant effort!!!!

Really nice event to bring together lots of the people you see at the league events, but all wearing the same vest – well done everyone!

Special mention to Matthew Fortes for driving the Eryri people down to Brecon and back – star!
