AN epic challenge has been faced by local athletes.

Last week, 10 Denbigh Harriers ran the 186 miles of the Pembrokeshire coastal path over full days, averaging a marathon a day.

Starting near Cardigan in the north, the team hugged the coastline all the way south to Amroth, near Tenby.

Completing this rugged and beautiful coastline involves 35,000 foot of ascent and decent, which is similar to the amount of climbing on Everest!

Everyone involved achieved their goals, with many personal records being set.

The Denbigh Harriers' team consisted of Emma Collins, Mel Morris, Sioned Lloyd, Duncan Jones, Anwen Brown, Bob Neale, David Baugh, Menai Baugh, Katy Baugh and Elen Baugh.

Meanwhile, six Denbigh Harriers raced in the Deganwy Dash five-mile race last week, with some great performances being seen.

There were excellent personal best times over this distance for Paul Goffey and Jess Jones.

Harriers' results: 44, Philip Hayes 34.34; 62, Paul Goffey 36.39; 81, Ian Jones 39.14; 54, Dawn Marshall 46.38; 74, Rebekah Dumayne 49.32; 94, Jess Jones 55.00.

The 9.5-mile Llyn Brenig race was run in damp conditions by three Harriers and they were led home by a veteran of this race, Fred Jones. There were great runs also from Luke Hughes and Caroline Dawe.

Results: 39, Fred Jones 1-14.49; 77, Luke Hughes 1-26.55; 144, Caroline Dawe 1-49.31.

Five Denbigh Harriers tuned out for the Bodelwyddan parkrun on Saturday.

Results: 18, Victoria Whitehead 24.32; 32, Mark Jones 26.29; 75, Ian Jones 30.45; 76, Julie Roberts 30.46; 134, Rachel Morrell 39.04.
