JONES CRISPS – ANGLESEY HALF MARATHON & 10K
25 Eryri Harriers were amongst the 1056 finishers in the Jones Crisps Anglesey Half Marathon (Always Aim High event) on Sunday 4th March. Run in much warmer and dry conditions of late with only a slight headwind on the way out towards Beaumaris & Llanfaes on the very undulating course. Eryri were led home by John Parkinson in 17th position overall with a time of 1:23:14 with Elliw Haf being the first Eryri female finisher in 2nd place overall with a PB time of 1:32:01. The only Eryri category winner was Maggie Oliver FV/70 in a time of 2:14:33.
The event was won by Bangor University Student Callum Davidson (Rossendale Harriers) in his first Half Marathon with a time of 70:50 ahead of Tom Roberts (Meirionydd) 72:48. Elliw was beaten into 2nd place by Lucy Williamson (Ilkley Harriers) 1:24:04.
In the 10km race, there were 4 Eryri Harriers amongst the 417 finishers with Catherine Connell 8th overall and 1st female finisher in a PB time of 38:52 while it is good to see Eryri founder member Malcolm Jones still competing very well, finishing 61st overall and 2nd MV/60 in a time of 50:23.
The event was won by Mike Roberts (Deestriders) with a time of 34:37.
A well organised Always Aim High event.
