Report by Don Hale.


There was a very good turn-out of members from North Wales Road Runners at the annual Felinheli 10k race last Wednesday, which attracted a bumper entry of some 325 club and social runners on a bright and breezy evening.

Martin Green was back to his best and he finished in 2nd place overall and won his M40 age cat in style in just 35 minutes and 34 seconds, and he was one of five club runners amongst 21 entrants, who claimed podium places, including three age category wins, and two third place finishes. 

Will Evans was pleased with 20th place in 41.03, and he was 4th in his M40 cat. Stuart Culverhouse on top form in 28th place in 42.14, and he was 3rd in his M50 cat, whilst Iwan Evans was 31st in 42.51, but he was chased all the way by club newcomer Benjamin Brummitt who enjoyed a fine run in 32nd place in 42.56.
