Rest in peace Chris Davies, Buckley Runner

Sad News on a fellow Buckley Runner here. Extract from the Flintshire Leader News report Tuesday 6th August 2013 Chris ‘was a very keen sportsman who relished any challenge. His boss described him as the best of the best and he will be greatly missed by all of his family and very many friends.’ In an earlier blog post in 2006 Chris received an award at a Buckley Runners Award evening.

Chester Marathon Training Run

On Sunday 4th August I attended the monthly Chester marathon training run. As one of the 'pacers' for the race i set of with around 8 others who on race day will be aiming for 4hrs 45. An out and back course, and wonderfully organised by the Chester marathon chaps - water stations at mile 3.5 turn around at 7 then 10 and at finish, My group did 14miles - with one or 2 doing 17. The faster groups ran 1.5mile out and back at the end of the 14 to make 17. I had done my out and back 1.5mile before the meet up to make a decent 17miles. Great to meet up with other runners , many of whom were training for their first at marathon distance. I hope you gained something from chat with other runners. And the count down clock on the Chester Marathon website reads 60days to go.
