Three North Wales Road Runners crossed the border into England last Saturday and celebrated with some very good performances in the Tatton Park 10k race in Cheshire, including Kay Hatton who won her respective veteran age category.
With parkruns and most other races currently prohibited, or severely restricted in Wales, due to Welsh Government and Covid-19 restrictions it meant another long trip for three notable club athletes who had to battle strong winds, cold temperatures, and rain over a challenging but picturesque course.
Harry Driscoll (*pictured above) was the first NWRRC member home in 19th place in 39 minutes 51 seconds, with Iwan Evans 31st in 41.43 and 4th in his MV40 age cat, whilst Kay Hatton was the pick of the trio, and continued her excellent form to win her VW55 age cat in a superb time of 48.03, finishing 109th overall and the 13th female runner. And Kay incredibly finished more than five minutes ahead of her nearest age cat rival.
