A very impressive turnout of 29 hardy Denbigh Harriers completed the 26th Nick Beer 10k which runs a hilly route round the Great Orme in Llandudno on Sunday 11th February. The race was also the Welsh National 10k Championships and the club picked up three national age category prizes with Emma Collins winning gold in the F55 category, Victoria Whitehead silver in the F45 category and Menai baugh bronze in the F55 category. The conditions for this race were severe with very strong winds and freezing temperatures making fast times on the course difficult. It was impressive therefore that two runners, Shaun Hughes and Tony Wood managed to get under the 40 minute mark with Daniel Jones and Craig Jones just over. Emma Collins and Victoria Whitehead ran a close race with one place separating them in the end. There were similar club finishes between Hywel Roberts and Daniel Schraibman along with Melina Morris and Elen Baugh.
