Macclesfield Harriers & Athletic Club

Helsby Four Villages Half 2016

28 Hardy Harriers completed the 4 villages half this year, a not inconsiderable challenge on a chilly day, but thankfully ice and snow-free course.

Some excellent runs, and great to see quite a few new faces out for the traditional first half of the year,

The biggest cheers at the prize giving were for Pauline - first FV70 - and a fellow from Prestatyn, first Vet 85 (think about it).

Macclesfield Ladies (Guenaelle, Kristy and Rachael) won the Ladies' Team prize - great effort ! and Guenaelle (5th Lady) James, Kristy, and Pauline won individual prizes.

But well done everyone for completing the race !! and also many thanks to all the marshals, organisers, and everyone else who helped with the race, and also to the several Harriers cheering us on by the side of the road, very much appreciated.
