This year the race was organised by Nightingale House instead of Flintshire County Council. I was really pleased to see that it has got even better, with even more runners taking part. The change has gone a long way to put behind them the perverse way the event was staged in the early days and how money was spent on it. I hope that the races raised plenty of money for this most worthwhile charity and that they want to do it again next year.
The arrangements for the race were similar to previous years and the course was the same. The weather was a bit of challenge; the head-wind going up the hill out of Mold on the second lap was “interesting”. But it was the same for everybody and made for a good race although I think it slowed most people down a bit.
Buckley had a superb turn-out. I made it 9 men and 8 ladies. Results as follows
5th Jez with 1st MV35
12th Erika with 1st Lady
22nd Mike with 3rd MV40
24th Les with 1st MV55
25th Jeff with 1st MV45
37th Steve with 2nd MV55
58th Mike with 3rd U17
115th Margaret with 3rd LV45
164th Rob with 2nd MV60
201st Sue with 3rd LV50
Both the men and the ladies got 2nd team prize.
I know Ell and Alison were running too but I don’t have their positions (sorry). I think they both finished just under the hour. Anyone got their result?
Congratulations to everybody who ran and thanks for the support from many others.
