It was a busy weekend running wise with a fabulous Helsby turnout at the latest Delamere Park Run 5k on Saturday 12th April. Twelve green vests were led home by the brilliant Colin Bishop who ran through the finishing tape for first overall with Colin Thompson running well with a solid 4th place. Tom Dejong took his course PB and Janet Robertson led the ladies home for 56th overall. Well done to all who ran.

As I’m sure many of you are aware it was London marathon weekend last Sunday and many of us were tuned in, not to watch Mo but to see how our three Helsby runners got along. Not far behind Mo in all fairness was Chris Fitzpatrick with an awe inspiring sub three hour run to finish in the top 1000 of the race. Guess he never wore the mankini in the end. Great and similar runs were had by Helen Owens and Clare Miller. Helen Owens had completed a sub four hour Manchester Marathon just the week before too. Very impressive Helsby quartet there and be sure to congratulate them.
926th Chris Fitzpatrick 2.55.35
5965th Stephen Roach 3.35.37
13,280th Helen Owens 4.06.47
13,715th Clare Miller 4.08.39
Hope I’ve not missed anyone, let me know if so!

It was the 2nd road counter of the Helsby summer road series on Sunday at the local Whitley 10k, a race organised by Spectrum which takes in some of the country lanes of Cheshire and the pleasant village of Whitley. Another great turn-out for Helsby with a good battle for club honours between the many categories. Ivan Davies piloted the way for Helsby with a great win closely followed by Roy and Ian. Louise McEveley was first lady home to take the full race points.
Hopefully this now makes it interesting for the third road counter this coming Wednesday at the always popular West Cheshire Spring 5 race.

In other news did anyone find a blue OMM jacket last Wednesday after the club talk as it was possibly left on the night by a club member? If so please drop me a line. Could someone also ask behind the bar tonight too. Just to reiterate, it’s a blue OMM jacket, very lightweight.
Good luck to all those at the Spring 5 on Wednesday and hopefully our marathon runners are also recovering well.
Keep on running
