Report by Don Hale.

North Wales Road Runner and Welsh Master Llyr ApGeraint-Roberts has gained qualification to the GB Team after finishing 3rd in his respective age category during a 2025 Duathlon Championships qualifying event, held last Sunday on the East Fortune Race Circuit, near Edinburgh.

Welsh master Llyr competed in a 5k run, followed by a 21k bike ride, and a final 2.5k run, with his excellent times, and age cat position ensuring him an automatic qualification. His very fast times for each event included his first run of 5k in just 18 minutes, the 21k cycle race in 36 minutes, and the final 2.5k run in 9 minutes.

After the event, he confirmed: “I secured my qualification for the 2025 championships by finishing in the top-four of my age group at this event (I missed out at Castle Combe at the beginning of March). “Overall, I came 24th out of 110 entrants, and I was 3rd in my age group, which ensured automatic qualification, however, I don’t yet know, where, or when, in 2025 the Euro Champs will be held.”

NW Road Runners on their travels...Plus the Valetta half-marathon, Cheshire Elite, Newborough, and Nova parkruns.

It was another busy weekend for NWRRC members with Llyr ApGeraint Roberts winning selection to the GB team for the 2025 Duathlon, Stuart Culverhouse adventuring abroad to Malta to run in his first overseas race, and drama for Will Williams in the Cheshire Elite 10k, plus other parkrun results.

*Stuart Culverhouse competed in the Valetta half-marathon last Sunday in Malta, and he ran home in a very good time of 1 hr 36 minutes. Afterwards he said: “My first race abroad but not my quickest, but it was never going to be. I have had calf niggles for a while, plus it was so hot out there, but a great experience.”

*Cheshire: Will Williams took part in the Cheshire Elite 10k race on Sunday but unfortunately, he was not at his best due to a chest infection but bravely continued after a brief stop, and eventually finished in 211th place in 41.39.

*Newborough: Sion Thomas ran well at the Newborough Forest parkrun and he finished 7th overall in 21.40, and he won his VM40 age cat.

Prestatyn: Tony Price Jones made his debut at the Nova Prestatyn parkrun last Saturday and won his VM40 age cat with a strong performance, finishing 8th in 22.40.
