Cross County at St David’s College

Last weekend St David’s College in Llandudno hosted the second race in the North Wales Cross Country League and the local fixture ensured a good turnout of runners and supporters for GOG Triathlon Club.

Putting in a strong performance on the mixed terrain Helen MacArthur led the way for the ladies, followed by Emer Sandham, Laurie Morris Griffith, Alexandra Aldous, Nicola Tomlinson, Paula Stevens, Evelyn Heffernan and Tracy Price.

In the men’s race Steve Lyall was first home for the GOG Squad, and was chased to the finish by Geran Hughes and Daragh Reynolds, followed by David Griffith, Andy Jones, Simon Roxburgh, Andrew Williams, Simon Blain, Paul Hooson, Paul Sanders, Huw Parry, Simon Hick, Stuart Goldsack, and Simon Adey-Davies.

Meanwhile in Denbighshire Sarah Gallacher was the sole GOG Triathlon Club Member taking on the Fell Hell 10km race, which saw athletes racing through the Clwydian Range and over Moel Famau. Sarah made an impressive return to form and was the 13th lady to finish in a field of over 300 runners.

Also over in East Wales on Sunday Chris Bennett was racing in Minera at the North Wales Cyclo Cross Series. Bennett raced well but was unlucky to puncture on the final lap of the tough course.

If you are interested in triathlon or joining the GOG Squad the current training schedules are on the GOG website or Facebook group ‘GOG Triathlon’.
