The Fox Trot Sat 7th August    7 miles 1000ft    Results Pics from Alastair
45 runners took part (and all finished) in this new race from Newfield in Colwyn Bay (with kind permission from Rydal Penrhos School). The runners enjoyed a variety of terrain through the Pwllycrochan Woods, with a steady climb up the Nant-y-Glyn valley before turning round and heading back down over open farmland with views of Conwy, the Great Orme and Colwyn Bay.

First back was Neil Parry in a very impressive time of 49:31, making it two wins in 7 days for the on-form Clwydian Range Runner. Paul Rowley of Sale Harriers was second home in a time of 51:11. First in for the ladies was Andrea Rowlands (Eryri) in a time of 57:02 and the second lady home was Helen MacArthur from Colwyn Bay in a time of just over an hour.

Afterwards, everyone enjoyed a really good spread of tea and cakes. Thanks must go to all the marshals and helpers who did a fantastic job and to all those that made and donated cakes. Over £150 was raised for the cancer unit at Glan Clwyd hospital.

Thank you to everyone for coming along on Saturday and for supporting this new race and I look forward to seeing you all again next year!
