Five Sarn He­len run­ners ran the San Domenico 20-mile race in Merthyr Tyd­fil.

Ken Caulkett was first back and 13th over­all in a time of two hours 14 minutes and 20 sec­onds. Next was Alexan­der Price in 2.40:01. The first of the ladies to finish was Pamela Carter in 3.19:05, fol­lowed by Jenny Caulkett in 3.27:02. Last of the Sarn run­ners was Nicola Davies in 3.48:00.

Af­ter very lit­tle train­ing but with steely de­ter­mi­na­tion, Sarn He­len’s Martin Darby took on the Cheshire 10k and was pleased to finish the 6.2mile race in 54:31.

Moun­tain lover Dee Jolly dragged train­ing pal Mitchell Read­win along to a feisty fell run in the Bre­con Bea­cons. Tor y Foel fell race was held from and fin­ished on Taly­bont Reser­voir, a short race at 4.5 miles straight up and down the moun­tain.

Jolly worked hard to finish 2nd lady, 14th over­all in 39:48, just 13 sec­onds be­hind the win­ning lady. Read­win en­joyed the des­cent and flew through the finish in a time of 48:02.

Six Sarn He­len run­ners took up the chal­lenge of the Nant yr Arian Sil­ver Trail Half Marathon in per­fect con­di­tions for the sec­ond stag­ing of this new event.

The best of the bunch was Ge­orge Eadon, who has seen a mas­sive im­prove­ment over the last year. From a leisurely start he fin­ished in a blis­ter­ing time of 1.43:46 and was placed 1st se­nior male, a great achieve­ment.

Jess Bruce was the next Sarn runner. She was look­ing to de­fend her title from last year, and de­spite fin­ish­ing in 1.46.02, 10 minutes quicker than last year, she was edged into the 2nd placed fe­male but fin­ished 1st in her age group.

Eilir Evans ran strongly for a time of 2.00:25, and not far be­hind was Steven Holmes in 2.05:33, de­spite a lack of train­ing through injury. Sarn He­len run­ners at the Nant yr Arian Sil­ver Trail Half Marathon were Steven Holmes, Jane Holmes, Ge­orge Eadon, Pam Carter and Eilir Evans.

Putting in the miles for her Lon­don Marathon train­ing was Pamela Carter, the first of two events over the week­end for her, and it saw her finish in a time of 2.34:05 over this tech­ni­cal course. Jane Holmes pow­ered home in 2.58:32 to com­plete her third half marathon of the year.

Sarn He­len had two ju­nior fe­males rep­re­sent­ing the club in the Sil­ver Trail chil­dren’s race. Mad­die Eadon and Alis Evans stormed round the 1.6-mile course with its tricky as­cents and its windy de­scents, cross­ing the finish line to­gether to en­cour­ag­ing cheers from the crowd.
