Holt is Bay’s top fin­isher at Tre­borth

North Wales Weekly News - - COMMUNITY EVENTS -

SAM HOLT was the top fin­isher for Col­wyn Bay Ath­letic Club when the Grand Prix Ex­press North Wales Cross-Coun­try League got un­der­way on Satur­day.

Holt fin­ished fourth in the un­der-17 men’s race at the tra­di­tional league opener at Tre­borth Track in Ban­gor, where the re­cent warm weather had made it one of the dri­est cour­ses in liv­ing mem­ory.

Col­wyn Bay AC face a chal­lenge in the league this sea­son, with some of the club’s mem­bers hav­ing joined new Llan­dudno-based club GOG triathlon, who are also in the com­pe­ti­tion.

The Llan­dudno club’s ranks in­clude highly-ac­claimed triath­lete Rhian Roxburgh, who last month won the Aber­soch Half Marathon and fin­ished third in the se­nior women’s race at Tre­borth.

Rhi­an­non Kamink fin­ished an im­pres­sive 10th to lead the Bay’s women’s team home, but they find them­selves joint bot­tom of Di­vi­sion One fol­low­ing the first fix­ture, along with Me­nai Track and Field.

The men’s team, led home by the ever com­mit­ted Richard Wat­son in 55th place, are fourth in Di­vi­sion Two, 33 points be­hind GOG in third place – with the two clubs look­ing set to en­joy a friendly ri­valry dur­ing the course of the sea­son.

Col­wyn Bay will host the league’s sec­ond fix­ture, which will take place at St David’s Col­lege in Llan­dudno on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 17.
