Capenhurst 5k road counter 9 wed 22nd august

Good turnout for Helsby at last Wednesdays 9th club road counter of the season, the Capenhurst 5k organised by Ellesmere Port Running Club. Conditions were good for running and it was a particularly strong field with the course record being broken by nearly half a minute with an astonishing run from Liverpool’s Johnny Mellor. 15 out for Helsby with good runs from Jane and Janet that saw podium finishes for their respective age categories. 229 runners completed the race so a big field this year meaning the race also filled up on the night, so unfortunately a few people had to miss out.
