Samuel's in good shape for Albania.

Byline: GARETH HUGHES

ERYRI'S Rob Samuel got in some fine tuning for next month's World Mountain Running Championships in Albania with a convincing victory in the Ellesmere 10k.

Samuel (below) finished almost a minute clear of Mark Dalkins (Telford), with teenager Ryan Holroyd (Staffs Moorlands) third.

In the URENCO Capenhurst 5k race Wrexham's Emma Parry took the ladies' title, edging it from Jennifer Pybis (Liverpool Harriers) by 12 seconds.

Another North Wales winner last week was former Prestatyn and Deeside athlete Katie Parry (Leeds City), who was sixth overall and first lady in the Hyde Park Sumer Mile in Leeds in 5.21.

This Thursday (1st) is the fourth and final race in Deestriders' Off-Road Grand Prix series in Shotton.
