Flintshire 10 Km Sunday 9th October

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

18th Jon

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

317th Fiona

324th Phil

365th Ann

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.

  1. Ell was 276th in 58 mins. Allison was 227th in 56 mins. Well done both of you.

  2. I think Nightingale House Hospice are looking to continue with the Flintshire 10k. I chatted with them on the Mo day after the race when I took in some sponsor money from 2 marathons in 14 days 4:37 Berlin , 4:38 Chester
