Helsby weekly round-up 10th – 16th April 2013

Hi all
A busy week for Helsby members…
Last Wednesday saw the penultimate Border League race at Shotton, Deeside organised by Buckley Runners. With two laps of an industrial estate it was not the most scenic route but a good finish of a top path looking down on a bottom road meant we could see how the race was progressing for other Helsby runners, which helped make the later stages of the race much more interesting
There was as usual great support from Joe and Colin’s wife Jane was also out offering fantastic support on the night.
Helsby also had a couple of first place finishers, with many others in the top three for their respective age categories. Colin B and Albert brilliant as ever with another great run from Colin Thompson establishing himself at the top end of the field. It was good to see Ian Landucci back from injury too and to have so many Helsby ladies out to secure them a 3rd place in the team standings in the top division.
Now we have more consistent strength in the men’s side of the club maybe looking for Border League promotion next season or beyond can be a distinct possibility and something for the club to aim for.

Saturday was the 7th Delamere Park Run with less Helsby runners than of late but with some of the usual park runners helping out on the day saving themselves for Sunday and the Whitley 10k. Adrian was first in for Helsby for the men and Janet for the ladies. Well done to all who ran.
