Sandstone trail challenge – brilliant!

Quick report: another brilliant day, another great event. Thanks go to everyone taking part whether running, walking, marshalling, feeding, punching cards or any of the numerous things that somehow magically happen behind the scenes. Three cheers to Andy Robinson for being catalyst and ringleader.

Hills were climbed, records broken, mud and wind conquered, feet battered, pies eaten. Results over on the main website: www.helsbyrunningclub.org.uk

Sandstone trail challenge

Wow, what a great success! Proper write up soon, but for now it’s enough to say the event ran really smoothly and if the number of smiles at the end says anything, was one of the best of it’s kind.

Adair came in for the home team first, with a truly stunning time of 4h 33. Nice one!

Helsby Half runners — Mike’s photos

Photos of  Helsby runners taken at just over 1 mile and at 8.5 miles. The photos are in order they were taken and so are in race position order. I have more of each runner, if anyone wants copies let me know and I will send them to you. Well done to all runners, sorry if I have missed anyone.

Runcorn Weekly news pics

There’s a nice picture gallery from Runcorn Weekly News, including a group shot of some of the Helsby runners.

Helsby Half runners — Ian’s (niece’s) pics

What an excellent race it was today, well done to everyone involved.  My niece was primed to take a few photos of any Helsby runners she spotted going past the turn in Mouldsworth just after 8 miles.  Some managed to escape the camera but she caught quite a few of us.

Cheers Ian
