Denbigh Harrier Victoria Whitehead was feeling tired with sore legs after completing her first Ultra Marathon on Saturday 23/10/21 in Yorkshire. This Ultra was the Punk Panther challenge of 29.33 miles along the Nidderdale Way – it was a dark start at 7am with everyone wearing head torches, but once it became light the views could be truly appreciated! The route crossed lots of muddy fields, paths along the river Nidd and required navigation which was tricky in places, causing a few wrong turns. This Ultra was only 4 weeks after Victoria’s first trail marathon, but she still managed to finish in a fantastic 06:33:42.
There was a good turnout again in the North Wales Cross Country league, this time at Treborth, Bangor, hosted by Eryri Harriers. The Junior Team made their debute with everyone enjoying the experience! The Women’s Team held onto their 3rd overall position in Division 1, with the Over 65’s Men’s Team also holding on to 3rd. A really good turnout in the Men’s team saw strong performances meaning they were 5th team on the day, but staying 7th position overall in Division 1.
Three Denbigh Harriers travelled to Liverpool to run the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon on Sunday 24/10/21.
