The August Denbigh Harriers Handicap race was well contested with the first 10 runners finishing with a minute. The course was slightly longer than previous races due to a course diversion so times were slower for everyone. John Llewelyn Thomas was the winner this month after putting on a sprint finish holding off the fast finishing Arwel Jones and Mel Morris. The fastest times on the night went to Tony Wood for the men and Mel Morris for the women. With only two races to go in the series there six or seven Harriers in with a chance of winning the series. Tony Wood and Victoria Whitehead are in strong positions with Ruari Benton Tony Benton, Luke Hughes, Bob Neale, and Arwel Jones in contention.
1st John Llewelyn Thomas 33:51
2nd Arwel Jones 25:13
3rd Melina Morris 22:48
Wednesday saw four Denbigh Harriers enjoy a beautiful sunny evening for the Caernarfon 10k. There was a light southwesterly breeze behind the runners for the final 4K with fantastic views of Snowdonia mountains and the Llyn Peninsular. There were two well deserved age category prizes for Duncan Jones in the M60 and Menai Baugh in the F60. This year the race was run clockwise with the hills at the beginning which many thought would be easier however everyone found the final flat 4K on the Menai straights hard work. A special mention should go to new member Carys Davies who ran the race in 51.29 having done the North Wales 1/2 marathon only three days before.
35th David Baugh 42.41, 76th Duncan Jones 48.09 1st M60, 108th Carys Davies 51.29, 128th Menai Baugh 54.21 1st F60
