Round 4 Borders League
Abergele, 14/2/2010

 

Abergele Harriers hosted the latest round of the Borders Road Running League but still managed to field a team of nine men and three ladies as well as providing all the marshals for the race. First Home was race organiser and Harriers Captain, Darren Blazier in an excellent time of 27mins 55mins for the measured five mile course, to finish in 8th position on the day. Second home, continuing his outstanding form this year, once again achieving a personal best time, was Keith Elliott, finishing in 31mins 5secs for 56th position and taking a superb 1 minute 27 seconds off his previous best for the distance. The only other personal best of the day went to the equally in form Jeni Richards who lead the ladies home in 34mins 58secs for 133rd position overall, and 14th lady overall. The ladies team was completed by a superb performances from Carol Willgoose in 139th overall and 16th lady on the day and Sian Hall in an equally impressive 193rd overall and 43rd lady. The third man home on the day was Grahame Shone who ran an excellent race, finishing in 90th overall, while Michael Carrighan and Mark Mayers finished very closely in 102nd and 108th positions respectively, just ahead of Ed Reid in 112th. John Essary continued his amazing run of never having missed a Borders League race for the club since it joined the League in 2001, and finished in a very creditable 156th position, just ahead of Peter Hardy in 158th. The team was completed by Alan Lucas who ran extremely well finishing in 167th. Although the men are currently on the bottom of the first division, the ladies team are riding high at the top of the second and leading the ladies improvers league and could very well win both this season.
