North Wales Road Runners had three athletes within the top four finishers at Conwy parkrun last Saturday and claimed six age category wins during another well attended and sun-drenched event.
This popular 5k event again attracted numerous Bank Holiday runners from across the UK to sample the delights of this spectacular riverside course with many of the 216 finishers also recording PBs.
Josh Keogh led the club team, and he was the first runner home overall, and celebrated victory as the 1st SM30 cat winner in just 17 minutes and 19 seconds. He was closely followed by club colleagues Jonathan Kettle in 2nd place and 1st MV45 in 18.03, and Steve Mason 4th, and 2nd in his MV45 age cat in 18.55.

Steve Roberts won his MV55 cat finishing 21st overall in 21.26, with Sean Butler continuing his good form to finish 27th overall and 2nd in his MV60 cat in 21.50, and all credit to endurance club runner John Dalzell, just a week after his epic 53-mile ultra-challenge, who finished 35th in 23.09.

Nicola Wylie put in another positive performance to finish 54th overall, and she also won her VW50 age cat in 24.25, with Karen Butler again impressive and she too won her VW60 cat in 25.39, and Helen Hannam had a steady run to finish 2nd in her VW45 cat and she was 71st overall in 26.09.

Birthday boy and veteran athlete Len Jackson was back at parkrun again and ran well to finish in 76th place in 26.37, with Gethin Wyn Jones 86th in 26.54, whilst Dave Spofforth ran with his son Ben, and the youngster took the honours again to win his JM10 age cat, finishing 109th overall in 28.58, with Dave one place behind, whilst Rachel Morris enjoyed an easy run in 158th place in 32.39.
