Hotfoot up Moel Famau

Hotfoot up Moel Famau

Last Wednesday saw another outing on this friendly mid-week race, the first of the ‘Clwydian Summer Trots’ series. It goes a little something like this: up, down, up, down, uu-up, doWN. That big up is the horrendous stone gully leading almost to the top of Famau. Really we’ve run up there sufficient times to know better by now. It’s not a fit place to walk, let alone attempt to race. Nevertheless several Helsby vests were out for this great little race.

Some characteristically bonkers prizes from organiser Martin – a water pistol, chocolate, watering can and sleeping mat, amongst the usual beer and wine.

Helsby positions:

8 Adair Broughton Helsby 40.17

17 Jim O’Hara Helsby 43.38

23 Steve Riley Helsby 45.37

29 Jane Ashbrook Helsby 47.13

50 Chris Hatton Helsby 53.05

62 Robbie Webster Helsby 61.11

Jane came away with 2nd female prize and Jim took a spot prize for ‘most creative final descent’. Well done both! Full results from WFRA. and pics from
