Conwy parkrun returned to action again following the intervention of Storm Arwen the previous Saturday, but numbers were down due to a clash with other fixtures and a cold blustery wind.

The event was won by tourist Ben Hague (Rotherham Harriers) in a PB of 17 minutes 9 seconds, and his club colleague Tammy Hague, also won her VW35-39 age cat in 23.03 and was the 2nd female athlete.

North Wales Road Runners Club entered nine athletes amongst the 164 finishers and Harry Driscoll was the first club man home finishing 5th overall in 19 minutes 22 seconds to win his SM20-24 age category, and Sean Butler was another cat winner of his MV60-64 section.
