Andy Bromley, who has provided tremendous back-up to fellow members of Prestatyn Running Club over the past 12 months, had his well-deserved share of the limelight when he won the opening race in the Off-Road Series in Shotton last week.

With 26 members in action – Julie Evans pulled out after a fall and Duncan stopped to help her - the club provided 25% of the total field even though some of the regular competitors were missing. Among the 26 were six making their debut in the annual series.

The placings were: 1 Andy Bromley 25.57, 25 James Rogers 32.51, 29 George Nicholls 33.20, 37 Benjamin Harrison 34.21, 38 Nigel Bakewell 34.41, 42 John Jones 35.34, 53 Gary Johnson 38.01, 54 Ally Reid 38.09 (2nd L45), 59 Steven Brown 38.53, 66 Mike Davis 39.57 (1st M70), 67 Liz Martin 40.19 (2nd L40), 68 Katherine Prestwich 40.29, 69 Martin Gill 40.30, 70 Jennifer Owens 41.13, 72 Clair Atterbury 41.19, 77 Jo Lewis 41.57, 83 Julia Evans 44.28, 84 Clare Manley 44.30, 87 Cara Jones 45.53, 93 Debbie Jones 50.39, 95 Lesley Furneaux 52.18, 96 Janice Price 54.06 (2nd L55), 98 Alex White 55.07, 100 Debbie Cartwright 56.45.

Once again there were pbs galore for members in local Parkruns. Clare Atterbury took over a minute off her previous best in the Wepre event, breaking the 30-minute barrier for the first time and coming 63rd overall in 28.36.

Results from Conwy were: 39 Nigel Bakewell 21.59 (pb), 67 Gareth Hughes 23.34 (1st M70), 82 Martin Gill 24.28 (pb), 86 Neil Stephenson 24.47, 125 Amy Reid 26.56, 174 Hannah Garnett 28.50.

Lois Lee, running for St David’s College, finished an excellent 33rd overall in the Three Hills race at Penmaenmawr, the latest in the Joe Brown Tuesday night series. She clocked 42.31, with Steve Brown 66th in 56.02, Neil Stephenson 59th in 52.13 and Tracy Colligan 69th in 61.57.

On his debut for Wales Steve Skates came away with a team bronze medal from the Home Countries’ mountain-running international in Sedbergh. In a high-quality field he finished 30th overall.

A strong bike ride served Karl Martin well in the Deva Triathlon, an Olympic-distance event in Chester. He completed the 1,500m swim, 40 ride and 10k run in 3-37.46.

The club’s annual relays will be held at Marine Lake, Rhyl, tonight (Wednesday) and on the weekend of June 22-24 the club’s annual social stay in Aberdaron takes place. As usual, there will be two runs along the coastal path, with a meal on the Saturday night, and places are still available.
