Saturday saw the last fixture in the North Wales Cross Country League at Oswestry and it finished with some success for Eryri. It was fantastic that Richard Roberts got the award for first Senior man, backed up by the evergreen Emyr Davies and Don Williams finishing first and second respectively in the over 65 category. Congratulations also to Ron Hird finishing 3rd over 70 in his first season competing in this category in the league. Unfortunately the men’s teams did not feature in the medal positions; despite doing so well at Colwyn Bay and Bangor (travelling to the more distant fixtures seems to be a problem!). Thanks to Arwel 27th, John Harold 47th, Steve Llan Jones 80th and Eurwyn Edwards 103rd for turning out for the club.
However the women’s team surpassed last years silver medal position by gaining the gold senior ladies team medal (the club last won this in the 1995/6 season!) and the Veteran Ladies bronze team medal. Well deserved individual awards went to Andrea Rowlands (4th senior lady and 3rd over 35), Annie Williams (1st in the over 45 category) and Maggie Oliver (1st over 60). Finishing order at Oswestry was Jenny Heming, Becky Law, Andrea Rowlands, Annie Williams, Allison Donnelly and Maggie Oliver.
Many thanks to all who participated and helped in the league this season.
Meanwhile: Up in scotland Rob Samuel was on his travels again representing Bangor University in the British Universities Cross Country Championships in Stirling where Rob finished 12th overall beating some quality athletes in the process. There were 228. finishers
