Hello! Hope everyone has been enjoying running in the lovely winter sunshine. Please let us know what you have all been up to at helsby-race-reports@.
Thanks very much.
Message from the Chair.
Cycle club talk on Wednesday 4th Dec (tomorrow)
Calling all members, we need you. Helsby Cycle Club are putting in a lot of effort to give us a good evening tomorrow night (after the club run) so lets get down to the club and support them.
HCC will be telling us about what they do and setting up some interactive stations for us to have a go. I would like us to be building up some strong links and supporting this new member of the HCSC family, as endurance athletes we have loads in common and loads we can be doing together.
Not forgetting the draw for our London Marathon place which will be happening during the evening, if you have a rejection slip and qualifying races ffom the Border League, then you are eligible. PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU QUALIFY FOR THE DRAW BUT ARE NOT ABLE TO MAKE IT ON WEDNESDAY, THEN LET ME KNOW (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Chip butties will be provided, please let Louise / Helen know if you are going to be coming – HelsbyRCSocial@outlook.com
Borders League Race 3: Birkenhead Park, 1st December 2019
This Sunday saw a great turnout for the third Borders League race on a beautiful but crispy and frosty morning. The park looked stunning with lovely autumn colours catching the sun. Once we had found the posh loos (in the nearby college) we were all very happy.
We had to go very carefully round the many twists and turns of the four lap route round the park. The frost on the ground did not appear to melt despite the herd of runners stomping repeatedly across it.
Great results for Helsby with the Division 1 men standing sixth in the tables and Division 1 women an impressive 3rd. Helsby men Vets in 4th place and Vet women 3rd.
Well done everyone – such a great series. See detailed results below.
Next Borders is Abergele on Sunday 12th January at 11.00am. Be there or be square.
Lastly a reminder about this Saturdays Christmas bash (7th December) amidst HoHo Helsby celebrations
Plan is to still meet up in Railway for 5pm, Beer Heroes for 6pm and maybe meeting in Helter Skelter around 8-9pm (Chris F can confirm)
That’s all for this week. Happy running 😀.
