Jim Jones did the Moel y CI on Saturday, a tough fell race over in Snowdonia. Jim states “Found it pretty tough coming back down and lost a lot of places to the experienced fell runners.

Hopefully have a better run on the Pipe Dream in Dalgarrog on Saturday.”

Penby’s Tuffnutz 11mile team Endurance event (multi-terrain running and obstacles) is on again this year but it does unfortunately happen on the same day as a Border League race. Jackie has sent the link for more information which is below but the date is Sunday 6th April 2014 at 11.00am at Thurstaston. I’ll include the flyer on the blog or see here


Chris Fitzpatrick and Jackie have both asked me to mention about the Helsby beer festival, message from Chris below;

“I believe the Helsby Beer Festival comes to town on 7th & 8th March, and we don’t need an invite to go out and enjoy ourselves, so there’s a few of us meeting up and going to the sports club on Friday 7th, approx. 7.30pm. You will need tickets for this one, they are £3 each, you can pick them up at the sports club, Helter Skelter, Chester Rd Shell Garage and a few other places. Would be good to see you all there.”

As always

Keep on running
