Despite three of Eryri's athletes finishing in the top ten, Eryri did not have the strength in depth to deny Buckley winning on the day and moving 99 points ahead of Eryri with only the two races to go in the Borders Road Running League. Still Rob Samuel made it four wins out of four in the 5.3 mile Capenhurst race on Sunday 22nd February winning in 27:44 with 3rd Richard Roberts 28:41. 7th Brendan Rothery 29:17. 37th Tony Woodall 32:16. 53rd Arwel Lewis 33:00. 83rd Dylan Owen 34:26. 101st Ashley Wager 35:18. 106th Steve Livett 35:30. 108th Christoph Gertler 35:35. 127th Don Williams 36:46. 129th Ian Rothery 36:54. 130th Emyr Davies 36:56. 144th Merfyn Williams 37:50 and 211th Roy Jardine 42:51.
Eryri's ladies meanwhile are in serious danger of being relegated after only the one season in the 1st Division mainly due to another 100 point penalty for not having the required four counters. Eryri are currently trailing Prestatyn by 33 points following the Capenhurst race, though on the bright side, Sarah Ridgway, making steady progress after injury still leads the ladies rankings following her 80th placing overall was 3rd Senior Lady in 34:13 with 143rd Gemma Morgans 37:44 and 170th Rebecca Riddings 39:03.
There were 251 finishers.
The next race will be at Connahs Quay on Sunday 15th March. Start 11am.
