Following the Mynyd Mwfr hill race Monday morning, by 1.00pm we were pleasantly informed that Andy Robinson has followed in Chris’s footsteps and successfully completed the Bob Graham round in 23 hours 37 minutes. Magnificent achievement by Andy and he’ll be doing report for the Helsby blog shortly. Congratulations to Andy from all at Helsby!

Monday morning saw our yearly pilgrimage to quiet Trefonen near Oswestry for the 4 mile Mynydd Myfyr.hill run. Helsby ladies were able to steal the show with 1st and 2nd places from Jayne and Jane but not to be outdone in the prizegiving was Helen Moss for first in her age category and Jackie Keasley also. Great to see Betty testing her hill legs too. Although there were some lovely flowers on display it seemed like the Welsh whiskey was a better choice for the ladies winner.
Adair, Phil and Robbie were the male contingent.
Many thanks to Joe, Mario and Rachel for support during the run with Rachel out supporting her son who had a stunning run to pick up a cash prize as first Junior.
23rd Jayne Joy 26.04 (1st lady)
29th Jane Ashbrook 27.22 (2nd lady)
58th Jackie Keasley 32.23 (1st in category)
71st Betty Grieve 34.55
81st Robbie Webster 38.24
83rd Helen Moss 41.41 (1st in category)
85th Phil Gillard 41.43
Having a look at the Oswestry Olympians site I’ve just noticed that the Lake Vyrnwy race September 9th, which is one of our club counters is already full. I’ve missed the boat on this particular race but fortunately some Helsby members were a bit more on the ball!
Joe also surprised everyone by bringing his torch in honour of his good friend Doug Morris and luckily Mick Charman was on hand to capture some photos.
Tuesday night saw the Thurstaston Multi-terrain challenge now run by Pensby Runners. Over 70 people were out for this event that has been in early May in previous years. We didn’t have a delightful sunset like in previous years but did miss the worst of the rain during the run. Jayne Joy doubled up on two wins in two days showing that form is temporary but class is permanent. Adair, Colin and Adrian and Albert were also out to enjoy the night. (I’ve picked up a Helsby vest btw, presumably Albert’s?). Many thanks to Joe out on course, on the beach and on the Wirray Way for the run in.
