The third fixture of the Borders Road-Running League in Caernarfon on Sunday produced another highly encouraging result for Prestatyn Running Club, with no fewer than 28 members – 17 men and 11 women - turning out.

Among them was Steve Stocker, who was making his League debut, and he had an excellent run, finishing 72nd and fifth club finisher behind George Nicholls, Gareth Bailey , who was one of several members who recorded pbs, Alex Ryder and the rapidly improving Chris Hassall.

Sian Beck continued her fine form to lead the women‘s squad home in 140th place overall and once again there was solid support from Victoria Whitehead – in her first League race of the season – Coral McShane and Gabby Waring.

In expectation of a strong wind along the Straits the course was reversed but in the event the conditions proved ideal.

The placings were:

  • 30 George Nicholls
  • 51 Gareth Bailey (pb)
  • 55 Alex Ryder
  • 65 Chris Hassall (pb)
  • 72 Stephen Stocker
  • 79 Tony Devenport
  • 91 Matty Smith
  • 102 George Nixon
  • 131 Tony Benton
  • 140 Sian Beck (pb)
  • 157 Victoria Whitehead
  • 167 Gareth Roberts
  • 187 Coral McShane
  • 188 Gabby Waring
  • 197 Andrew Scott
  • 200 Gareth Hughes
  • 205 Mike Davis
  • 217 Steve Gleave
  • 223 Debbie Richards
  • 225 Martin Jones (pb)
  • 227 Ann Marie Roberts
  • 228 Sue Rodgers
  • 232 Jo Lewis
  • 238 Katie Dawson
  • 244 Davy A Jones
  • 247 Roger Harrison-Jones
  • 248 Liz Martin
  • 250 Debbie Wade (pb).

Dafydd Owen was the club’s sole representative in the Vale of Clwyd half-marathon in Llandyrnog and on a hilly course he clocked 1-53.32.

On Saturday Prestatyn’s second-claimer Amie Bagnall, in the colours of her first-claim club Salford, had a cracking run in the Manchester Area Cross-Country League, finishing 34th. This Saturday she, along with Abbie Cheetham, Coral McShane, Benjamin Harrison and Alex Ryder, are in the North Wales squad for the Welsh inter-regional cross-country championships in Builth Wells.

Club members showed their skills – or lack of them – at a different sport last week when over 40 attended a ten-pin bowling social evening at the Ffrith Centre. Club captain Mike Davis led by example by winning the men’s competition, with organiser Duncan Longley second and Matty Smith and Terry Martin equal third. Jo Edwards was the ladies’ winner, followed by Sue Rodgers and Gill Brandrick.
