Run the bridge 5mile results – road counter 2

Hi all

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 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.

28th         Adair Broughton              28.53
122nd      Gareth Boyd                       33.39
166th      Geoff Shaw                           34.57
230th      Carol Shaw                          37.09
321st       Alison Meakin                    39.45
402nd      Kay Pirali                            41.35
404th      Nesta Hawker                    41.41
490th      Janet Shaw                         43.38

This meant the Helsby Men’s team were 10th overall, and Helsby Ladies 7th so well done to everyone who took part.

Final border league race wed 27th april – wrexham ind estate 7pm

Hi all

Wednesday 27th April sees the final Border League Race of the 2010/2011 season.

This is a shorter and flatter course than the other Border League races at just over 6km

Please note the assumed start time is 7.00pm so for those wishing to car share I’d suggest meeting at the club at 6pm

Further (although not much) information can be found on the Border League website here

POSTCODE for directions is given as LL13 9RG but parking, start and finish is where the Half Marathon, or Helena Tipping 10ks go from, at the Clubhouse. There will be drinks and prizegiving available after the race for those that wish to stay.

Directions to the Clubhouse/Parking are here:

Will be great to see as many of you as can make it
