I think most who turned up here had done it before, which is curious really because you’d think knowing what was coming up would be a severe disincentive to coming back. Always a tough race with around 2400′ of climbing spread across 5 or more tops and 9.5 miles. The Llantysilio ridge is a real roller-coaster, no sooner is one climb over than you’re straight into a steep descent, and some of us at least found it hard to get into a rhythm.

The day was blessed with very warm weather, as it has been for the last few years, making the added water stops at the two road crossings very welcome. Helsby presences from Adair, Chris BH, Jim, Steve, Phil, Andy S & Jackie, with the usual high quality marshalling and vocal support from Joe. Good to see Robbie out as well doing his own thing earlier in the day, missing the worst of the heat.

Put it in your diary for next year. And if I haven’t sold it you, put the date in anyway for a long weekend away elsewhere, for the guaranteed weather.

Final border league race wed 27th april – wrexham ind estate 7pm

Hi all

Wednesday 27th April sees the final Border League Race of the 2010/2011 season.

This is a shorter and flatter course than the other Border League races at just over 6km

Please note the assumed start time is 7.00pm so for those wishing to car share I’d suggest meeting at the club at 6pm

Further (although not much) information can be found on the Border League website here

http://www.bordersleague.org.uk/

POSTCODE for directions is given as LL13 9RG but parking, start and finish is where the Half Marathon, or Helena Tipping 10ks go from, at the Clubhouse. There will be drinks and prizegiving available after the race for those that wish to stay.

Directions to the Clubhouse/Parking are here:
