SUNDAY 3rd SEPTEMBER 2017 – START 11am
What a difference a day makes! After a glorious, sunny Saturday on the Foryd in Caernarfon, the following day was a bit of a washout to say the least! Still, 149 competitors completed the Caernarfon 10k on a very wet Sunday morning with the race going in a clockwise direction this year to make good use of the following wind along the Foryd (Aberforeshore) After torrential rain in the early hours and early morning, by the 11am race start time, the rain had eased to a bit of a drizzle though there were quite a few large puddles along the race route, it was quite warm and decent running weather.
Tom Roberts (Meirionydd) made his intentions clear from the start as he led from the off and was a clear winner and North Wales 10k Champion in a time of 32:41 ahead of Dean Longley (Prestatyn) 33:47 and Owen Roberts (Unattached) 35:01. The female North Wales title went to Annie Bagnall (Prestatyn) who finished 24th overall in a time of 39:35. For the first time ever in the event, the first Eryri Harrier to finish was a female runner in Gemma Morgans who finished 29th overall and 2nd female with a time of 40:48 ahead of 31st placed Gary Young – 41:12, 32nd Steffan Evans – 41:22. 36th & 3rd female finisher, Elliw Haf – 41:56. 37th John Davies – 42:03. 61st Maldwyn Evans – 46:00. 69th Chris Hoult – 47:17. 85th James Harwood – 49:22. 134th Roy Jardine – 63:17 & 142nd Iorwerth Roberts – 64:30.
Thank You to everyone who helped out at the event ensuring it was a successful North Wales 10km Championship race, despite the weather.
