DENBIGH Harriers have taken the opportunity to compete in a number of events.

Mike Hobday ran the last race in the Joe Brown Series at Llanberis last Tuesday evening.

On a short course of just under two miles, Mike finished as the second M60 in a time of 19 minutes and 15 seconds.

Mike also finished a fantastic third M60 overall in the series, with fellow Harrier Menai Baugh also finishing a brilliant third F60 in the series.

The Saturday also saw three brave Harriers take on the Foel Fras Fell Race, which started in Abergwyngregyn.

Approximately 12-13 miles in distance (depending on route choice) and unmarked, the first six miles was a pure climb along the Roman road to the top of Drum followed by another grassy climb to the top of Foel Fras.

This is where it got interesting, with many route choices to get to the top of Moel Wnion - runners were thankful of the good weather, which at least made it possible to see the direction they needed to go in!

From Moel Wnion, it was a quick dash to Abergwyngregyn through the heather and bracken to finish by the cafe for some well-earned tea and cake.

Finishing 19th overall and the first senior female in a brilliant time of 2-27 was Katy Baugh, who is getting stronger with each fell race.

Mel Morris also had a brilliant race and she put her navigation skills to the test to finish 26th overall in 2-36, closely followed by Mike Hobday, was was 28th in a great time of 2-45.

A couple of Denbigh Harriers also took part in ‘Move a Marathon for Ethan’. This is a charity event in memory of Ethan where participants complete a marathon over the course of the weekend to raise money for The Welsh Air Ambulance and Young Minds charities.

Abigail Louise Swainston followed her half marathon at Coed y Brenin with another half marathon on local roads on Sunday, supported by fellow Denbigh Harriers along the way, to complete the marathon distance.

Peter Lester-Owen opted to run the full marathon distance on Sunday, also on local lanes, with wife and fellow Harrier Alison joining as support for the last four miles.
