Hope the Christmas festivities have been good to everyone.
There has already been a couple of Delamere Park runs since the last round-up email, not least one on Christmas day! Well done to Colin Bishop for his podium place and to Janet leading the Helsby ladies home. Special congratulations also to Stephen Wiggins securing a PB so soon after his last one.

Boxing day saw the Round the Walls race take place in Chester, albeit without the walls due to an icy start to the day. Runners in their new Christmas trainers were treated to a two lap figure of eight muddy loop within the roodee racecourse.
It was a good showing for some of Helsby’s best runners with Colin Bishop, Jayne Joy and Geoff and Janet Shaw on good form…..Maybe it will entice Geoff to try some cross country races ! Colin and Jayne were both prize winners with Colin even beating local fell running legend Jezz Brown. It was also an interesting race to support due to all the familiar faces and to the naked gladiators and Father Christmas trying to run off all the mince pies and sherry he’s been indulgent with. Thanks also to Jane out on the course in support.
15th Colin Bishop 19.53
30th Jayne Joy 21.09
193rd Geoff Shaw 26.43
338th Janet Shaw 31.35
