CONWY HALF MARATHON 20/11/2016 RACE REPORT

Categories: Road News

Eryri’s Russell Bentley carried on with his good form of late after a superb win in the Snowdonia Marathon three weeks ago; most people would have taken a bit of a break but not Russell! Last week Russell finished 4th overall and 1st MV/35 in the Cheshire 10k (31:25) and on Sunday 20th November, Russell added another title to his tally by winning the Conwy Half Marathon in a very good time for the course which includes a loop of Llandudno’s Great Orme of 69:47 nearly a minute clear of runner-up James Douglas (Border Harriers) 70:40. Amongst the 2,408 finishers, there were 25 Eryri Harriers competing with Dewi Owen just making the top 10 for 2nd MV/35 behind Russell in a time of 78:40. Notably, Andrea Rowland finished 4th female in a time of 86:16 while Derek Weaver had a stormer to win the MV/60 title in 92nd place overall with a time of 89:24.

A glorious day for the event run in sunny conditions well organised by Chris Yorke and his Runwales crew.
