Sunday 1st October

Cardiff Half

4 members travelled down to  Cardiff for the half marathon, which was also extra special as Izzy and Bradly from Alfies Army were running their first ever half marathon, and they have been training with us on Monday, Wednesday and Thursdays. Both did really well finishing in 1:49 for Bradly and 2:06 for Izzy.

Mersey Tunnel 10k

Peter Jones was in Merseyside for the Mersey Tunnel 10k, an interesting race where you get the chance to run through the tunnel from Liverpool to Birkenhead, and then down the river to New Brighton, a relatively flat course apart from the climb out of the Tunnel

Borders League

Team Photo

9 members made the trip to Capenhurst for the first race of the 2017-18 series, which saw a course record attendance of 386 athletes taking part. This is a fast flat 5-mile course consisting of 2 loops, definite PB route. Andy Savage was first Cybi home in the Mens race in 26th place and Rhi Willmot first Lady in 33rd place, with a new PB for 5 miles of 37:29. Nice to see a new face on the team, with Dewi competing in his first Borders League event

Saturday 7th October

Bangor 10k and half marathon

10 am saw the start of the Bangor 10k and half Marathon from the clock tower in the City Centre, you head 1st Senior Ladyout and down to the pier, this is great as you get the chance to see the leaders and other runners as you head to the end of the pier and back. After the pier, everyone heads up the cycle path that follows the old Penrhyn railway, just before the 4 mile point the half marathon runners head off towards Penrhyn Castle before going through Llandegai and the Castle grounds on their way back to the City Centre. The 10k continues up the path for a short distance before rounding a cone and heading back to the finish by the clock tower.

Dylan Jones and Tracy Lock were also running the 10k after winning their places at the Improvers course held by the club that finished the previous week.

Ryan Roberts finished 3rd in the 10k with another 3 Cybi Striders finishing in the top 10, with Andy Savage winning his age category. In the half marathon Ian Ferguson finished 6th overall on his first time out representing he club and also won his age category. Rhi Willmot ran an impressive race just missing out on a sub 1:40 but finishing 6th lady and 1st senior lady
