It was a good start to the Border League season for both the male and female teams at the season opener in Caernarfon on the 9.10.16. The race is run on the Caernarfon 10k course, which was only run in September so was an useful guide to runners how their training was progressing. Rhys Owen was 1st Cybi in, finishing in 35th position in a time of 37.35 (beating his time in the Caernarfon 10k) closely followed by Andy Savage who was running in his 1st Border League fixture who finished in 38th position in 37.43. It was a busy weekend for Andy as he also finished 3rd in the Bangor Half Marathon the previous day. Other Cybi results : 88th Chris Thomas 40.35,111th Ian Mulligan 41.52,131st Dave Ellis 43.05,151st Nigel Holmes 43.55,185th David Billington 45.57,218th Sion Roberts 47.38 (and a personal best !).
In the female race Edith Gruber was 1st Cybi in, finishing in 28th place in a seasons best time of 45.30. Next in was Sian Ellis in 59th place in 50.35 closely followed by Diane Holmes in 64th in 51.52 and Ruth Harvey in 77th in 54.48.
Both teams sit in 4th place in Division 2 now.
The next fixture is on the 6.11.16 hosted by West Cheshire Athletics Club.
