A weekend of races!

Its been a busy weekend for the club members attending three races.

On Saturday was the Wrexham 10 incorporating the North Wales Championships. Still waiting for the full results but an excellent day for the club! Nine Buckley Runners turned out for the race of us ran on a modified 2-lap course on the industrial estate at Wrexham (changes forced by road works)
Matt Rose won the race in 53-10 making him North Wales Champion for 10miles
Simon Roberts 58.25 1st MV40
John Bradshaw 61….. (ish) 1st MV 35
Jeff 63.53 3rd MV45
Les 64.05 1st MV55
Mike Jones 67 mins
Jack 83.30 was 2nd MV70
Rob 94.14
Margaret 78.38 won 1st LV50.
The men won the vets and got 2nd in the senior teams.

On Sunday three club members ran the 10km Race 4 Rescue in Mold on a very cold, wet morning. Paul, Leighton and Rob all completed the course. They probably fared better than Jane and Rup who volunteered to help. Jane was marshalling at the top of the hill, and Rup on the drinks station on Bryn Coch lane, Demand was low and they both got very cold and wet. Well done to both of you.

Also on Sunday several Buckley Runners went to Brecon for the fell race as it is part of the Welsh series and needed to qualify. Conditions were dreadful. Still waiting to hear the outcomes.
