Two Prestatyn Running Club members “doubled up” at the weekend as they turned out for the club in the fourth Borders League fixture at Deeside less than 24 hours after competing in the annual Twin Piers 10k in Colwyn Bay.

On Saturday, where runners faced a tough headwind along the prom from Llandudno, club chairman Mike Davis was second in the M65 class and he then had another good run at Deeside. Alan Jones was the other who did both races.

Also in Colwyn Bay Sian Beck picked up third prize in the L40 category. The full placings were : 100 S83 Des Davies 45.07, Sian Beck 45.41, 120 Ally Reid 47.20 (pb), 160 Alan Jones 50.02, 168 Mike Davis 50.35, 179 Nigel Bakewell 51.26, 189 Andrew Scott 52.27, 245 Gabby Waring 56.04, 304 Caroline Jones 60.43, 336 Clare Manley 62.47.

Twenty-five members turned out on Sunday and there were some exceptional performances, notably that of Steve Skates, who finished strongly in fourth place, Andrew Bromley, who continued his recent return to fine form, and Joy Hickman, daughter of super-vet John, who marked her debut for the club by being the club’s second lady home.

The placings were:

  • 4 Steve Skates
  • 12 Dean Longley
  • 27 Andy Bromley
