GWYN OWEN HOLDS OFF BRENDAN FOR 10k WIN

 Caernarfon 10k 2013 results

There was a very good turn out for the long running Ceir Cymru Caernarfon 10k race on Sunday 1st September with 211 finishers completing the scenic route.

From the start, a group of four with Brendan Rothery pushing the pace alongside Chris & Jordan Evans and Gwyn Owen surged ahead of the field along the 4.1k Aberforeshore (Foryd) stretch, Jordan Evans dropped off the pace before the turn where Gwyn Owen made a determined push for the lead which he held despite the best efforts of Brendan Rothery to win by 14 seconds with Chris Evans in 3rd.

There was a surprise in the women’s section where female vet/50 Emma Collins won the ladies title by 55 seconds.

The event also hosted the North Wales 10km Championships as well as being part of the Run Wales Series.

Thanks are due to the race sponsors; Ceir Cymru of Bethel for once again backing the event as well as Brecon Water for supplying the water bottles, Caernarfon Harbour Master Richard Jones for his assistance, St Johns Ambulance and Inigo Jones for supplying the slate coasters.

Not forgetting all those who gave up their time to help out on the day.

 Arwel.

Results from Ras y Mynydd attached here Ras y Mynydd 2013.

Eryri had more good results at this excellent little midweek race, which takes place at the village hall at Mynydd Llandegai.  It gives you a bit of everything, road, fell and trail.  Now been going for 20 years I hear.

It is also interesting to hear that the event once attracted 100 runners, and it would be nice to see it fully supported in the future.

Thank you to the helpers for the great tea and cakes afterwards yet again.

Llanfair TH Sports Day

Llanfair TH Sports Day is an annual event at the small village at the edge of Conwy County.  It hosts a little known 10k road race each year which attracts a small select field, and is actually quite a tough hilly route.

Eryri had a winning runner for the second year in a row.

A triumph for Adrian Williams in 40.06; and a second place for Paul Jones in 40.36.  Also Martin Williams 24th in 58.38.

Race The Train Results & Report

See below for results from Wednesday’s Race The Train, including Junior results

RasioTren-2013

Race the Train 2013 Junior

A hat-trick of victories on the course for Math, and once again the only runner to break 14 minutes, and nearly two minutes clear in the process. In the ladies the withdrawal of the previous winners Gina P and Sarah L left the way open for Menai’s Debbie Williams to win in an impressive 17.36, 17th overall, and the sixth fastest lady on the course’s history. A special mention to Emyr Davies, 1st over 70, in a new record by two and a half minutes, and still the holder of the over 50s record. While a record 158 runners beat the train time of 23.27. The victories in the non-athletic teams, for the case of Budweiser, went to Betsi Runaways mixed team, and Tara L.C in the Ladies.

In the children’s fun run non-appearance of their transport saw an improvised course, giving a victory to Morgan Gwyn-Jones and Mabi Goodland, who finished 2nd overall out of the 48 runners, all of whom received their Tesco goodie bags and certificates.

Thanks to all those who helped on the night especially to John P who did all the electronic registration, ran the race, entered the timings and positions perfectly, despite runners from the predominantly northern road running clubs attempts at sabotage, by substituting from other categories and messing up the prize giving. Oh, by the way the moral of the funnel finish is don’t let anyone pass you whilst in it. It’s no good complaining after! Next year I will introduce chip timing but the entry will have to go up by five shillings to offset the cost!
