Deeside Off-Road Race 1 - Thursday 4th June.
Ten Buckley Runners turned out on an ideal evening for racing. Dry and sunny with a cool breeze and dry underfoot too. A good night for the club with several good performances; Jez Brown first home in 5th in 28.30, followed by Steve Bellis in 21st in 30.52. An impressive group in the middle saw Paul Donahue 36th (32.42), Paul Stinton 39th, Mike Jones, 42nd and Gwyn Morgan 44th all finishing within 45 seconds! With an impressive run Rob Davies finished 59th in 37.09, with Rob Mackey 65th in 38 mins, and Margaret Ludden in 66th 38seconds later. Missing from the results (not explained yet!) was Sue Brierley on her debut in a Buckley vest about a minute later, a fine performance considering she had done the Edinburgh Marathon on Sunday in scorching conditions.
Well done everybody. Welcome Sue, nice to see you there. Also good to see some of our new recruits to training nights and one of my ex-Flint Runners colleagues running. I got a couple of enquiries about the club too. And did some delving into the clubs origins. More on that later.
