THREE Denbigh Harriers took part in the Aber Bach Fell Race last Tuesday night.

This is a 4.1-mile race which climbs over 1,000 feet in the first two miles, followed by a very fast descent.

Vic Belshaw was the first Harrier home, finishing in a very respectable 21st position out of 139 runners in 31 minutes and 47 seconds.

He was the first M5O, breaking the M5O record in the process.

Claiming 65th position in an excellent time of 37.01 was Katy Baugh.

Menai Baugh had a terrific run to finish in 90th position in 40.49.

This was enough for her to be the first F60 and she broke the age category record, set by herself last year, by over three minutes.

Dawn Marshall was the sole Harrier at the Chester Spring 5 and she was pleased with 45:58, a race personal best of almost two minutes.

Duncan Jones finished in 1-20.34 for the Goldrush Trail at the very scenic Coed y Brenin on Saturday.

The first running of the Llangollen Fell Race took place on Sunday.

Katy Baugh was the sole Denbigh Harrier in this very challenging race and she was the 10th female in 2-55.23.

The Coast Half Marathon was billed as a fast flat course, but with a headwind the whole way this course ended up being more challenging than first anticipated.

A total of 11 Denbigh Harriers took part.
