Eryri's Rob Samuel was to the fore again as he led the Welsh team under the banner of "Running Crazy" to the team prize in the Barcelona Half Marathon on Sunday 14th February and in the process Rob improved his PB for the distance by 41sec with a time of 66:08 as he finished 5th overall while his team mates were not far behind: 6th Craig Hopkins 66:17. 7th Ian Williams 66:20. 8th Michael Johnson 66:20. 10th Nat Lane 66:26 & 14th Richie Gardiner 66:59. Late call up Wrexham's Emma Parry finished 207th overall (8th Female) in 81:46.
Rob timed 31:26 for 10k and 47:12 for 15k.
The race was won by Kenyan athlete Erik Kibet in a time of 63:10.
There were 4135 finishers.
Following trips to races in: Cardiff, Belfast, Stirling and now Barcelona already this year, we might see Rob run a race in North Wales soon!
