BRECON 3,4,5 SERIES (May/June 2019)

The Hay Hotfooters were very well represented for these three races which always attract large fields and some extremely fast runners.

In a few words…..we did brilliantly!!!!! Some of us were competing in our first ever 5 mile race, after graduating from “walk to run”, while others tasted their first medal success.
As a small club we have grown from strength to strength as evidenced by our ladies coming 2ND in the TEAM COMPETITION just behind Brecon AC.

In the 5 mile race both Sharon C and Addy picked up medals.

For the series our fantastic medal haul was…
Addy – 3rd lady
Addy – 1st FU20
Patrick – 2nd MU17
Tom- 2nd M45
Shazza – 3rd F45
Brian – 3rd M50
Jo – 3rd F55
Nigel – 2nd M60

As a club member for over 10 years I can remember the “dark days” when we sometimes struggled to put a team together for cross country fixtures. How times have changed! It’s also great to see the club attracting junior runners. There are even rumours of an underground competition between the Merriman, Carter and Morgan dynasties to establish family supremacy.
