Astonishing and perfectly timed run from Jayne Joy saw her complete her Penmaenmawr double having retained her winning title from last year. Looks like some people got lucky and didn’t experience too much trouble in the notorious bog section, whereas others did! Thanks also to Joe and Mario out on the course. The 40th anniversary next year so give it a try.

And surely the biggest Helsby field we have seen in a long time was the feature of the Border League race held at Tattenhall. Not a flat 9.8km either.

Some great performances in this race overall and the ladies should be especially happy for a 3rd place in Division One for the team event. Helsby men were 4th in Division Two. Thanks to all who were out in support including Joe and Mario who have expressed their thanks for the large turnout via email and for Jane taking some photos on the day which will be put on the blog soon.

Please note it’s the Four Villages planning meeting that will follow Wednesdays run. 8:30 in the club bar. (November 20th)

Please come along and support Gareth and our half marathon. There are still a number of tasks and jobs to allocate which can be done by those planning to run or not to run. Many hands make light work…etc etc !!

And for those that know Buckley’s Johnny Morris, as a little celebration of John Morris’s 70th birthday we are meeting on Wednesday 20th November 6.30pm at the bottom car park of Moel Famau for a short run then back to the Colamendy pub for beer and cake.

Keep on Running

Adair
