Emma the only Denbigh Harrier who raced the Trailffest half marathon on Saturday. It was very scenic and extremely hot making it a tough race requiring perseverance. The Ffestiniog steam train transported runners and spectators in style to the start of the race at Tanygisiau giving plenty of time to enjoy the views and spot sections of the race route. Emma Collins finished 5th lady, 1st V50 in a field of 140 in a time of 2:08:26.
There were five Denbigh Harriers competing in the Llyn Alwen Trail & Canicross race over 11.5K. The race whilst starting in dry weather turned out to be a wet race for all concerned. Fred Jones led the Harriers home despite being the oldest Harrier competing with Carys Davies not far behind and relishing the hills. Ruth Crowther, Dawn Marshall and John Llewelyn Thomas had great runs on this challenging course with Ruth and John both having run a Parkrun the day before. Three Harriers, Roger Snaith, Katy Baugh and Stacey Hughes also supported the race by marshalling and sweeping.
Further afield in Australia Caroline and Rob Parry raced the Logan half marathon in very hot and humid conditions.
Both of them were happy with our times: Robert Parry 2:18:24 Caroline Ann Parry 2:44:03
