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!
