Weekly report 23/11/19

There was a new venue for the third fixture of North Wales Cross County League in Dolgellau on Saturday. Denbigh Harriers were there in force with 23 Harriers making the journey despite the ominous weather forecast. The course was longer than usual with with the women running over 4 miles on the mainly flat but low lying course with very muddy and uneven sections. The course also had a large water feature to navigate on multiple occasions. In the women’s race there were superb performances all the way down the field with all four Harrier counters high up the field. As is the case with cross country those behind the counters had a big role to play in knocking competitor teams lower down the large field. There were category placing for Rhian Pierce, Emma Collins, Tracey Williams and Menai Baugh. The hard work really paid off the women finishing 3rd team on the day out of the 24 teams taking part and putting them 4th in the 1st division and well clear of relegation. The women masters team is in also 2nd place making it a successful day all round for the women.

In the Men over 65 race the team of veterans put in a great performance to finish 1st on the day and vying for the top spot in their league. In the senior men’s race the team also had a very successful run over the 6 mile course with some great performances from all concerned. Special note should go to Shaun Hughes for his superb 17th place and for the close race between Owen Conry and Glen Price to be 4th counter for the club. As often happens in team races there were hard fought battles all the way down the filed with every Harriers run counting towards increasing the gap between the club and its rivals. The team were 2nd on the day and move into second place with promotion a distinct possibility.
