DENBIGH Harriers' latest Run for Fun class graduated with honours on Saturday at the Conwy Parkrun.

The class was supported on this 3.1-mile course by run leaders and previous graduates.

First home was 10th lady Elen Baugh in 23.51, just behind her personal best.

Then came Bob Neale (24.25) followed by March 2017 graduate Sali Powell in 24.58.

Sarah Bayliss finished in 26.34, with run leader Ian Jones pacing Julie Roberts, another Run for Fun graduate who is getting back to running after injury.

She finished in 29.28.

Roger Snaith paced the first of this year’s graduates Eileen Williams home in 30.06, which would have been sub-30 minutes as a chip time.

Graduate Sonia James completed the race in 31.45, while two previous graduates had fine runs.

Eurian Mitchelmore took two minutes off her personal best to finish in 32.01, with Diane Lloyd claiming a pb of 35.52.

The next graduate home was Lowri Davies in 38.19, supported on the course by Menai Baugh.

Lydia Clynch ran with Dawn Marshall and she finished in 44.09.

Many of our graduates had never run before, but they have achieved this 5k race milestone by following a 10-week couch to 5k programme delivered by Denbigh Harriers' passionate and dedicated run leaders.

The next course will start in January.

Over in Wepre and after several attempts at the Ladies V55 course category record, Emma Collins was finally successful on Saturday, finishing in 23.23.

She bettered her previous personal best by a substantial 46 seconds and she was the first lady home.

Denbigh Harriers now hold two of the age category records for this very hilly course, which is one of the UK's most challenging park runs.

In Nant y Pandy, Chris Baldwin bettered his time from last week in 25.39.

At Bodelwyddan, Craig Jones stormed home in third in 19.55.

David Baugh produced a pb in 21.24, with Tony Benton also getting a pb of 22:54.

There was another personal best for fourth woman Victoria Whitehead in 23.30.

Jon Whitehead crossed the line in 26.50, with Sian Pritchard getting a pb to finish in 28.49.
