Welsh Master CC at Builth Wells

Great to see eight (corrected from previous message) Buckley Runners competing at this event. The highlights of the results (as far as I can see from the most confusing results sheets ever, mainly owing to the need for two sets of results) 
Fantastic run from Eric, 8th overall, 1st M50 finisher for North Wales who won the team prize. He was supported by Steve who was 21st overall and 3rd finisher for the team.
Jez was 15th overall and 2nd M40 for N. Wales
Hayley was 19th overall
Alice (running for the first time for weeks) was 47th
Dawn was 50th
Mike was 47th overall and just outside the counters for N Wales
Eddie was injured and was forced to drop out on lap 1.

I am told that if we had registered all our athletes in time we could have won a team prize. Note to self - must get organised for next year!

Fantastic performances all round. Well done all of you


Running over Christmas

Back after a long break! 

Plans for running in the hills over the Christmas break and other races. The events organised so far.......
  • Sunday 21st Dawn is organising a club run. 1st car park at 9.00
  • Boxing Day (26th) is the traditional Round the Walls Race in Chester (check West Cheshire AC website for details)
  • Saturday 27th, training run on Moel Famau starting from the first car park, 9.00 as usual I think.
  • Sunday 28th Jubilee Plunge (summit of MF to Golden Lion at Llangynhafal) See WFRA website for details
  • Saturday 3rd January. Club handicap race on Moel Famau. We will use the same course as we did in July, approximately 5 miles of the trails. As before the slower runners start first, the aim is for everybody to finish about the same time. Provisional plan is.....
    Meet in the car park about 10.00
    First runners will set off about 10.30
    Target finish time of 11.15
    In the pub before 12.30
