WELSH CASTLES RELAY: I have submitted Eryri squad names to the event organisers, while it is very disappointing that I have been really struggling to name a full squad for such a prestigious and historical event of which Eryri were pioneers in being involved with the inaugural event under “Arfon Sports” Those who will be involved will certainly enjoy the opportunity which may not come our way again in the near future.

BORDERS ROAD RUNNING LEAGUE: There was a change to the usual format with a 4-team, one lap mile relay to officially end the 2023/24 League season at Birkenhead Park followed by the presentation evening. Eryri were represented by 8 club members with the male team of: Ian Edwards, Matt Bartlett, Sam Drinkwater and John Jones finishing 23rd overall and 11th all male team. Anna Drinkwater, Arwel Lewis, Nia Meleri-Edwards and Helen Blair were placed 58th overall and 19th Open Team.


14th April – PIER2PIER HALF MARATHON:  Pier2Pier Triumph for Tinka.

6 Eryri Harriers were amongst the 302 finishers in the well organised Run Wales Pier2Pier Half Marathon from Eirias Park, Colwyn Bay to Llandudno Pier & Back.

In dry, sunny and blustery conditions, Eryri's Tinka Vinks finished 10th overall and a clear 1st female by over 7 minutes in a time of 1:27:04 followed by: 31st (2nd M/65) Arwel Lewis 1:38:02. 39th (3rd M/65) John Jones 1:39:38. 49th (2nd M/60) Glyn Griffiths 1:42:13. 60th (3rd M/60) Ian Robson 1:45:09 & 134th (2nd F/60) Wendy Evans 1:59:15.
