Chester Half


Injury may have forced Lee Jones to give up his attempt to win his class in this year's London Marathon but he gained some consolation by doing the same in the Chester half-marathon.

 The Deeside athlete was eighth overall and first M45 in 71.54 in a race won by Kenyan Vincent Boit in a course record of 62.21.

 Ryan Roberts (Cybi), a newcomer to the local scene, had a tremendous run to come 13th overall in 75.30.

 Several North Wales athletes were among the  top three in their age-groups, including Martin Green (NWRR), who was second M40 in 77.18, and Ian James (Wrexham), second M50 in 83 .16. Richard Slattery (NWRR), having just moved into the M60 category, came second in 89.44.

 Dave Gardner (NWRR), who is ranked number one in the UK, won the M75 class in 1-42.13, with Eddie Naisby (Prestatyn) second in 2-23.22 - at the age of 87!.

  Full results are on the TDL Events website.
