Some of you may have heard about the Fizzy Friday 5K, or even took part. If you did take part or you only looked over the photos on social media after the event, take a read of this blog and look forward to the next Fizzy Friday 5K!
The date was Friday the 8th of September and everything was in place for the start of the first ever Fizzy Friday 5K. This was a prosecco fuelled 5 Kilometre run in the picturesque town of Llandudno.
One hundred women started off the event by registering at the Llandudno Bay Hotel. Some of the women taking part came from as far away as Carlisle and Norfolk. All of the money raised from this event will go towards paying winter pitch fees for the Llysfaen Lionesses Football Team as well as kit and equipment for other women’s and girls’ teams and individuals from across the area. There was to be 4 prosecco stops along the way. When the time came for the race to start the women had their 1st glass of prosecco in the Llandudno Bay Hotel, then we made our way over to the promenade to gather on the start line.
Ready, Steady, Prosecco……….and they’re off!
The first part of the race was to run up to the paddling pool and then the women would make their way back down past the start/finish line to the Imperial Hotel, this was the next stop for the 2nd glass of prosecco. Some of the ladies decided to down their drinks and others had a good chat and a laugh with theirs. It was then time to get running again.
Then onto The Kings Head for the 3rd glass, this was a run up past the pier and across to the start of the tram way up to the Great Orme. Once this stop had been completed they made their way back down and onto the 4th and final stop of the 5K at the St. Georges Hotel.
The last glass of prosecco down and it was time to head for the finish line, by this time the sun had started to set and we were ready to crown our winner. Across the line came Helen McArthur to win the race, second came Hayley Price Jones and in third place Sarah Tuck.
Now was the time to watch and support everyone else cross the finish line, all fuelled by prosecco!
As the sun was nearly completely set the last two wonderful ladies crossed the finish line. It was then time for everyone to party the night away at the Speakeasy Bar at The Imperial Hotel.
