Eight Pensby Runners attended the Jubilee plunge today at the Golden Lion, Llangynhafal. The weather was almost balmy compared to last year’s icy descent, with decent enough grip underfoot. Everyone made it up to the summit in time (just), and safely back down to the pub again. A special mention going to Andrew S and Paul C, who were not only festively outfitted, but also ran the whole way with a deceptively heavy (and decorated) Christmas tree carried between them. Good work!
The new year is nearly upon us, so it’s time for a very quick update on the cross country championships as we transition from the 2018 section into 2019. So far 38 Pensby Runners have competed over the course of the opening three fixtures, Clarke Gardens, Beacon Park and Arrowe Park. We had a particularly strong showing at our home fixture, Arrowe Park, with 30 runners competing, despite heavy marshalling and organising responsibilities for the club. Next up it’s the Northern Championships on January 5th in St Helens. Roll on 2019, and Happy New Year to all!
