Strid­ers tackle soggy cross coun­try route at Col­wyn Bay

Bangor Mail - - News - Run­ning

WITH the club cham­pi­onship get­ting to the busi­ness end of the sea­son, 12 Cybi Strid­ers raced the very muddy and very wet cross-coun­try route at Col­wyn Bay.

First up were the Cybi An­gels (Women’s Race), first Cybi home was Sara Saw­icz scor­ing max­i­mum points and ex­tend­ing her lead at the top of Divi­sion One.

Next in was Ang­harad Rhisiart, Pat Wilson and Sal Seeny, com­plet­ing the women’s line-up and all fight­ing it out for those top 3 po­si­tions in Divi­sion Two.

Next up it was the men’s turn hav­ing an ex­tra lap of the big hill thrown in for fun.

First Cybi home was Chris Thomas, who had ob­vi­ously de­cided to have a lit­tle play in the mud on the way around (see pic­ture!), Barry Smith was sec­ond in, with Dar­ren Seeney, Paul Mait­land and Sion Roberts fol­low­ing not far be­hind.

There was a sprint fin­ish be­tween the last two Cybi strid­ers home, Richard Fur­niss pinch­ing it right on the line from Nigel Jones.

Fur­ther afield, the Holmes fam­ily trav­elled to Am­s­ter­dam for the half Marathon, with fine weather for a good day of run­ning.

Nigel fin­ished in 1:41:08 and Diane in 1:57:47, while Ju­lia fin­ished with a course per­sonal best of 1:34:47.
