Weekend Road Racing

The Welsh 10mile championships take place this Easter Sunday at Lampeter where Eryri will be hoping for a share of the medals with four men competing. Rob Samuel will be hoping to add to his bronze medal achieved at the Welsh 10km Championships last month while Paul Wathan will be hoping for more of the same following his Under 23 Gold medal performance at the Welsh 10km Championships, Paul also did well to finish 5th in last weeks Blackpool Half Marathon in a time of 78:25, the race winner clocked 75:50. The consistent Brendan Rothery also makes the journey South along with Arwel Lewis. Among the favourites for the Gold medal is Telfords Chris Davies along with Cardiff's Nathaniel Lane, though local runner Carwyn Thomas could feature, hopefully our lads can get amongst them with Rob Samuel in the form of his life at the moment.
Not forgetting Gemma Morgans who also ran in the Blackpool H/M last week (1:40:25), Gemma will be competing in the Under 23 category.
On Bank Holiday Friday we have the annual Salford 10km on the usual fast two lap course where several Eryri Harriers have achieved PB's in the past.
Happy Easter Running to Everyone
