Two Denbigh Harriers represented Wales in the British and Irish Masters Cross Country International competition at Aintree on Saturday covering a 6k course. Emma Collins was the first counter for Wales in her category with her best international cross country placing finishing 12th in a time of 25.49. Menai Baugh took part in the open race finishing in 30.55.
A large group of eleven Harriers travelled to Brecon to represent North Wales in the Welsh Inter-regional Championships where over 2000 athletes competed throughout the day. The club provided one of the largest North Wales contingents for the Senior and Masters races with some excellent performances. The Baugh sisters, Katy and Elen had a hard fought battle all the way round the 6k course to finish on the line together. They were closely followed by Mari Wynne Williams and Cary Davies who was competing as a master. In the men’s race there was a superb run from Shaun Hughes finishing as North Wales’ third counter. The Men ran a 6 mile course which was very muddy and churned up after all the other competitors had run making this hard work. Most of the Harriers counted as scorers for their relevant age group teams.

The Penmaenmawr Fell Race took place on Saturday with many runners fondly remembering a stalwart of the race and Denbigh Harrier, Dave Say, who sadly passed away last week. Dave was a true mountain man with many years of epic fell running experience including almost every version of this race since its start in the 1970s. Two Harriers were there with Sioned Griffiths finishing as 17th woman in the wet and misty conditions which caused navigation issues for some runners.
