The recent heavy rain made conditions for the annual Jubilee Plunge race down Moel Famau even tricker than usual, with many runners taking a tumble.
The 3-mile race from the summit to Llangynhafal is inevitably a hell-for-leather experience with runners left to find the fastest route down, though most tend to follow the same sheep tracks and footpaths.
Seven members of Prestatyn Running Club took on the challenge and some of them were among the fallers. Steve Skates finished fifth in 11.40, just 18 seconds behind the winner, and he was followed by Dafydd Owe n (45th in 16.46), Wyn Roberts ( 46th in 17.09), Helen Ashworth 51st in 18.09), Gareth Hughes (54th in 18.47), Jo Lewis (56th in 18.59) and new recruit Kimberley Smith (61st in 19.48).
About 20 members turned out for the club’s social run on Boxing Day but plans for a dip in the sea had to be abandoned because of the high tide.
