WIN FOR JENNY
121 runners completed the tough but enjoyable Deiniolen 10k on Wednesday 14th June as the locals turned out in their droves to cheer on the competitors in quite warm and dry conditions.
The improving Gethin Jones (Cybi Striders) pulled away from Tom Roberts (Meirionydd) on the sting in the tail climb at 7.5k to win in a time of 34.23 with Tom clocking 35:08 followed by the first Eryri finisher Paul Wathan 35:43. Martin Green (NWRRC) took the MV/40 honours in 4th place overall in a time of 36:26 ahead of Eryri’s 6th placed Sam Orton 38:15. Noel Craine ran well to finish 13th overall and 1st MV/50 in a time of 40:38 while Iorweth Roberts won the MV/70 category with a time of 69:16.
Pride of place goes to Jenny Charlton who pulled away from club colleague Elliw Haf to finish 25th overall and first female finisher in a time of 42:40 (Female, New Course Record?) with Elliw clocking 43:43. In all, at least 30 Eryri Harriers competed in the well organised event with special thanks going to Gwynfor James and his crew and the people of Deiniolen for being such welcoming and enthusiastic supporters of the event.
