Inter-regionals and Masters XC champs in Builth Wells

Categories: Cross Country

It was cold, muddy and hard work but typical cross country fun on quite a hilly course! 

In a race with nearly 100 runners, Dylan Jones was an impressive (13th) overall and 3rd in the MV40-44 category, with Steve Jones (27th) and Arwel Lewis (43rd, 4th in category and nursing a cough!) helping to bring the North up 1st MV50 team. Steve also achieved a fantastic podium position coming 1st in the MV60-64 category! James McQueen had a strong run too, coming in at 66th overall. Well done all!

Well done all! (and apologies, not the greatest photo!)

Great running by Helen Blair (24th), Sandra Rowlands (34th) and Ellie Salisbury (43rd and 3rd WV50-54) gained them a brilliant 1st team prize for Eryri Harriers aswell as contributing to the 3rd position for North Wales in the inter-regionals! Becki Law was 10th overall in the senior ladies race.

Brilliant to see some of the younger athletes too, with Michael Spill running in the U13 boys race, coming in 40th position, and helping to bring the North up to 3rd position. Annabelle McQueen also ran well bringing the U15 girls up to 3rd position, coming in 24th in her race. John Spill and Steffan Williams ran well for the North in the U17 mens race, with North Wales coming in at 2nd place. Owen Roberts was 11th overall in the U20 mens race, also bringing the North Wales team up to 2nd.

Bronwen Jenkinson (despite her feet never warming up!), came in a strong 7th position in the U20 category.
