Please find attached the preliminary results for the 2nd Helsby Road Race counter, Run the Bridge 5 Mile, held on Sunday 24th April.
An earlier start than most races at 9.30am but still warm and it was a bit of a novelty running over the bridge faster than most cars appear to cross it at key times of the day, as well as being in a race with more traffic cones than participants!
However, with it being a Cheshire GP event, there was a bigger field than previous years, somewhere just over 900. Keep checking the Cheshire GP results here to see how you did. Helsby runners will be automatically entered into the GP series so it is also quite interesting to have a look at the handicap results also which can be a good indicator of improvement. The link for the Cheshire GP series is below
Official results for the race should appear here http://www.runhalton.co.uk/ but for now I’ve taken the preliminary results from an email sent by the organisers. Just let me know if you want me to forward the pdf file sent.
Helsby positions and times as below, please do let me know if I’ve happened to miss anyone.
