Congratulations and a huge thank you to everybody involved in an excellent event.
Organising and competing in a Border league is a challenge for any club, especially a relatively small club like ours. But the members reponded brilliantly to appeals by Paul and Les for support.
On the day we had plenty of marshalls and timekeepers; we were able to put enough people out on the course to ensure the safe running and effective recording of the event. Huge thank you to everybody who helped; runners not involved in the BL, parents, spouses, children. It was great to see Shaun back, and to see Jo, one of our new lady runners, there to help out on the day. And we need to thank North Wales Police (especially Sgt Darren Jones from Mold) and Highways (Sam Tully) at FCC for their support. And to John Driscoll for refereeing.
There are some bits and pieces that we need to look at before the next one (should be in 2012/13 season). Need to make notes at the next pub night. (It will be on April 5th at The Running Hare - I am told it will reopen in time for Mothering Sunday and our Pub-night)
And congratulations to the men who won on the day. Splendid!!! See http://www.bordersleague.org.uk/ for the full results.
