Prestatyn Running Club’s men and women look on target for a swift return to Division 1 of the Borders Road-Running League after another strong performance in the second fixture in Birkenhead Park on Sunday.

Both teams topped Division 2 on the day and after just two races the men already hold a 322-point lead, while the women are just seven points behind Chester Tri Club.

Steve Skates improved on his showing in the first race by coming a superb second overall, while Amie Bagnall moved up from fifth to third.

They were the undoubted stars of the respective teams, and even though some members were missing they received fine support down through the field. Dean Longley was 19th and, giving his usual 110%, Andrew Bromley finished 23rd, exactly as he had done the previous week in the cross-country in Bangor.

The last of the seven counters for the men – in 120th place – was debutant Jordan Mainwaring, who judged his race very well, moving through the field.

The placings were:

  • 2 Steve Skates
  • 19 Dean Longley
  • 23 Andrew Bromley
  • 37 Leon Bagnall
  • 69 Alex Ryder
  • 73 Amie Bagnall
  • 100 Matty Smith
  • 120 Jordan Mainwaring
  • 152 George Nixon
  • 194 James Rogers
  • 210 Helen Ashworth
  • 216 Tony Benton
  • 248 Nigel Bakewell
  • 251 Steve Weedman
  • 257 Gareth Hughes
  • 261 Ally Reid
  • 315 Sue Rodgers
  • 318 Alan Jones
  • 321 Mike Davis
  • 349 Jayne Penrhyn-Jones
  • 352 Liz Martin
  • 370 Jo Lewis
  • 371 Andrew Aitken

PRC @ Birkenhead Park Border League 2017

The club’s only representative in the weekly Conwy Parkrun was super-vet Roger Harrison-Jones, and he once again reduced his pb to 26.57, finishing 87th overall.

The club’s juniors ended the North Wales Junior Cross-Country League on a high note, with Joe Duffy the outstanding individual performer.

On a Bangor course still badly churned up after the previous week’s senior races Joe finished second in the under-11s’ race, just three seconds behind the winner, and it meant that he finished runner-up in his class over the four races.

Other results from Bangor were:- U11 Girls: 13 Ffion Armstrong 10.52, 16th Lily-Ava Morris 11.07, 17th Grace Jones 11.09, 21st Eden Jones 11.50. U13 Girls: 10th Rebecca Jones 15.18.
