Please find attached the results for the 40th running of the Boxing Day Round the Walls race at Chester Racecourse.
Due to wall repair and bad weather in previous years, this was the first running round the walls since 2006 on what was a slightly extended course (basically two laps round the racecourse rather than one).
Strong winds and excess mince pies didn’t deter the four Helsby runners with the standout performance from the ever improving Jayne coming in as 2nd senior lady on the day. Over 420 runners completed the course.
13th Adair Broughton 30.16
86th Jayne Joy 36.05
107th Geoff Shaw 37.13
310th Janet Shaw 47.09
