TROTS’ popular Tenby 10k proves another big success
TAF Running and Orienteering’s Tenby 10km attracted 600 runners from all over the UK, and as well as runners and their friends and family, many residents and visitors turned out to support this popular event, pronounced by race director Simon Scurrell and club chairman Richard Phillips to have been a success in its 28th year.
The main sponsor this year was WP Lewis & Son, with Run and Become, Paramount Networking Ltd, Bwlchygroes Farm Feeds and Howies.
With over 40 club members turning out to volunteer, it was left to a handful of members to represent TROTS in the race itself.
Fast-improving newcomer Sarah Roberts was first of the eight club members over the line and was rewarded with the runner-up spot in the F35 age category, placing 77th in 47 minutes 4 seconds.
A minute behind was Kayleigh Bagshaw in 97th. Dylan Evans was next in 148th, followed by Mike Terry (153rd), Catherine Lee (309th), Cefin Vaughan (327th), Emma Perkins (385th) and Catherine Morton (388th).
The overall winner of the race was Jamie Parry from Parc Bryn Bach, Tredegar, in a time of 34:04.
Sioned Howells from Amman Valley AC was the female winner, 18th overall in 39:17.
Meanwhile, TROTS club road race champion Lindy Eynon was called up to run for Wales in a Masters international against England at the Barry 10km road race.
She was third in the W55 category in a time of 46:16.
