Flintshire 10km and other races on Sunday

A good turn-out and excellent result at Mold yesterday for Flintshire 10km. Only six runners on the results showing as BR but plenty of Buckleyites around.
Good runs by Simon Roberts (7th overall, 1st MV40, Eddie (17th 2nd MV45), Mike (33rd) and Steve (41st 2nd MV55) secured the team first prize.
Rob was 297th and 2nd MV65, James Huggins made a sneaky appearance, both in Buckley colours. Dawn was a late entry with a fine run in 61st overall, Sue Brierley was 339th. Leighton making a rare weekend visit back from Leeds was 271st, and Kathryn was 251st.
And of the others; good to see Steve and Jane Tideswell back at the races! Steve 102nd and Jane 207th, Carol (Jane’s sister) had a good run at 465th, Kevin Burns was 137th.
Big thanks to all the supporters who were out on the course cheering and getting cold and wet.
Everybody found that times were down. It is a tough new course, mostly on closed roads, with around 600 feet of climbing, made up of a long drag up to Nercwys then charging down slippery narrow lanes to follow the Borders League course and back to the sports centre. Weather was cold and wet, especially as the time went on, late finishers got very wet. A well organised event raising money for Nightingale House, well done everybody.
Meanwhile Jason was back in action, clocking 2.11 for Wirral Half Marathon.
And at the Breidden Hills race Jez was 7th, Simon Edwards was 12th and John Morris was 89th, winning the MV65 prize.
A good weekend at the races!
