Weekend round-up

Once again lots going on this weekend. Results have already been sent out for the Wrexham ten miler


but other Helsby members had also been active elsewhere.

Great performances in what is surely the wettest marathon on record in Manchester on Sunday saw Colin Thompson with a magnificent 3.13.10 which placed him 208th out of 5000 or so runners. Colin has been improving massively and this result highlights that fact!


Another fantastic run saw Ivan with 3.24.43 (running with Alec’s number)


Helsby also saw Dave Madders under the magic 4 hours, and a great run from Dave saw him with 3.46.41 which shows his ironman training is really paying off.


Please also find attached a link to Chris Baynham-Hughes blog report on his Bob Graham attempt, it’s a big read but well worth it, a great piece of writing and insight into the long distance runs


Chris was also in the Fellsman this weekend, just a mere 61 miles, Results and route below, Chris in 80th, great effort!



Lesley and Dave Feakes (report below) ran in the South Cheshire 20. Results here:
