In the Denbigh Harriers monthly Summer handicap race this week numbers were a little depleted possibly due to the torrential rain. However 24 Harriers ventured out in the rain to run on the 3 mile course over soggy fields around Denbigh. The first three runners to finish were 1st Roger Snaith, 2nd Diane Roberts and 3rd Tony Wood.
On Wednesday Tony Wood raced in a fell race called The Beast which is actually a 4.5 mile race in Maeshafn near Llanferres that climbs 1,200’, mostly in the first mile. Tony ran the race and finished strongly in 40:34 improving on his previous best for this race.
Just 2 Harriers at the first race of the Deestriders off road series. Duncan Jones and Dawn Marshall pulled on their green vests for this mixed terrain race. A couple of laps of the cricket pitch followed by a couple of cross-country laps before finishing with a reverse lap of the cricket pitch, this race has everything – long grass, narrow overtaking places and though there isn’t much climb, there is a lovely steep bank to get up – twice! Good runs for both Duncan Jones and Dawn Marshall in 35:40 and 45:40 respectively though the official results aren’t out yet. Both found it slower underfoot than previously on this course.
