Cybi women within sec­onds of each other in Parkrun

Bangor Mail - - SPORT -

NINE Cybi Strid­ers took part in the an­nual De­ganwy Dash.

While ev­ery­where else seemed to be hav­ing a mild and dry Fri­day evening, rain clouds were rag­ing over De­ganwy, mak­ing a flat sea­side five-miler feel like a win­ter cross coun­try pud­dle-fest.

For the Strid­ers, the event formed the sec­ond race in the 2018 Club Cham­pi­onships.

The women’s race was su­per com­pet­i­tive, with all three Cybi ladies cross­ing the fin­ish line within sec­onds - Han­nah McPart­land 38 min­utes 44 sec­onds, Elen Jones 38.46 and Sian El­lis 38.40 push­ing each other on for some im­pres­sive times.

In the men’s, Ir­fon Row­lands (31.19) led the way, fol­lowed by Peter Jones play in any po­si­tion for the team. My weak­ness is that I need to get fit­ter. (31.57), Chris To­mas (32.54), Alan Rad­bourne (33.08), Rus­sell Wil­liams (34.30) and Dave El­lis (34.48). Dryer and warmer con­di­tions wel­comed three Cybi Strid­ers to the 10th Henry Lloyd Aber­soch 10k, which saw 1500 run­ners tak­ing part.

First Cybi home was Kevin Clark in 42.04, 36th over­all and sec­ond in age cat­e­gory, putting be­hind him a dis­ap­point­ing Liver­pool Marathon, fol­lowed by Nigel Holmes in 47.03 and Diane Holmes 56.07

Strider Rhi Will­mot com­pleted the San Fran­cisco Parkrun in 22.56, and was third fe­male over­all.
