More Words on Vyrnwy

Thanks to Geoff Shaw for some more words regarding the Lake Vyrnwy Half Marathon…

The race was again held around the scenic lake on a very warm Sunday afternoon. For a race of its size a chip system perhaps should have been used as the start was confined to a narrow lane. There was a good turn out of spectators who were principally around the start/finish area and on the dam itself, so a good cheer was received particularly on the final downhill home straight. The early running was by Mike Searle who was overtaken by Jane and Geoff after 2 miles, however cunning Mike with his perfect race strategy took off after 6 miles to be the first Helsby member home. Mike McShane looked well in finishing in his target time and was soon followed by Beverley and Richard. Post race news is that Beverley is able to walk again but rather gingerly as the pain of the race is easing.
