Eryri’s women ensured that they have the Borders Road Running League “Improvers Trophy” well within their grasp following the penultimate race of the 2017/18 season at Mold on Sunday 8th April. In ideal running conditions, dry with no wind, Helen Blair led the Eryri women home in 172nd position overall in a time of 36:05 followed by 281st Jenny Heming 42:04 & 299th Alison Donnelly 43:48. Eryri’s women finished 4th team on the day of the 10 teams competing in the 2nd Division and are 4th in the overall standings.
Disappointingly, only two Eryri men turned out for the club with Arwel Lewis completing his 125th Border League race (out of 134 races that Eryri have competed in) finishing 105th overall in a time of 32:44 with Ashley Wager completing his 61st Border League race, finishing 143rd overall in a time of 34:52. Not surprisingly, Eryri’s men finished bottom of the pile on the day and are placed 9th overall in their respective 2nd Division.
There were 333 finishers on the 5 mile undulatin course.
The final race of the season takes place on Wednesday evening 25th April to be organised by Deestriders.
In the overall Individual standings:
5th Helen Blair
8th Jenny Heming
5th Alison Donnelly
3rd Arwel Lewis
5th Ashley Wager
Back in February, on Sunday 25th, Paul Wathan was a race winner again as he triumphed in the Ruthin 10k with a time of 36:08. There were 201 finishers.
3 Eryri Harriers were competing at Wrexham on Sunday 11th March at different distances.
In the Marathon, there was a PB time of 3:09:35 for Nic Brook as he finished 16th overall out of 182 competitors.
Russell Bentley won the 20 miler by four minutes in a time of 1:56:45 ahead of 335 finishers while Arwel Lewis finished 12th (1st MV/55) in a time of 1:29:43 in the Half Marathon where there were 233 finishers.
A very good day for racing at Wrexham as the weather was dry with very little wind on the quite tough race routes. A very good well organised Run Wales event.
This Sunday’s Borders League race is cancelled due to the weather.
