On Saturday 2nd September 2017 our team of 9 runners (shown above) gathered to take on the Welsh Warrior 5 km obstacle course at Greenacres Farm Park in Mancot.
It was a challenging course over tough terrain that required strength, determination and team work to complete. Obstacles included going through muddy and water ditches, crawling under cargo nets and climbing over A-frames and hay bails to name a few.
All members of the team completed the course with Matthew King coming second in the overall race. He was closely followed by Dan Davies and Paul O’Connor in 4th and 5th.
Gemma O’Malley was the first of the girls across the line running with Andrew Baird. Not far behind was Jonalyn Curtis.
The remaining trio of Nicola O’Connor, Hayley Sullivan and Maria Heron came though in just under 50 minutes.
We would like to say a massive thank you to all our amazing Welsh Warriors for taking part and both them and their supporters for raising over £600 in sponsorship for Age Connects North East Wales.
