Grand Prix Express North Wales

 Cross Country League.

Round 5, Oswestry, 7/2/2009. 

 

Eleven Abergele Harriers travelled to Oswestry for the final round of the Grand Prix Express North Wales Cross country League, coming home with just a single individual trophy. The men however did easily secure their place in the top division for another season, and with the women already relegated, they didnít put a team out on the day, sensibly preferring to concentrate on the Nick Beer 10k the following day. First home on the day was Club Captain Geran Hughes who mastered the very difficult snowy underfoot conditions to finish an excellent 19th position on the day. Not far behind, running superbly at present, was Dewi Roberts in 24th, just ahead of Tim Cahill in an excellent 27th. One of the runs of the day came just behind with Gareth Roberts finishing in a tremendous 31st overall. Just behind Gareth, came Cross Country Manager Sean McCormack, who managed to hold onto a podium position, finishing third overall for the season in the highly competitive MV45 category. Steven McCormack was next in 70th position on the day, while not far behind was Keith Elliott in 77th, his highest ever cross country position. Ed Reid also managed to master the snow with an excellent 99th position, while Haydn Jones, in his first outing of the weekend, finished in a very satisfactory 103rd. Dave Edwards and Alan Lucas proved their London Marathon training is right on schedule at present finishing in a fantastic 103rd and 123rd respectively.
