MWCCL: Sickness and Stratford


How do you cope when illness decimates your superb women’s team? Well, perfectly fine actually if you are K&D. There were times when 9 women would be a maxed out showing. Now it’s the solid foundations.

One athlete who never fails to impress is Jane Evans who took full advantage of a couple of the B’ham Uni girls representing GB at the European Champs. Knowing it was an excellent chance to score a cracking result she struck fiercely for an outstanding 5th place and first masters athlete. Jane ran 26:21. Backing Jane up was the ever improving Flick Sharp – running 29:37.

Full Results:
Jane Evans (26:21)
Flick Sharp (29:37)
Kerry Thompson (36:07)
Kathy Bailey (36:19)
Adeba Jama (37:07)
Sandra Boot (39:37)
Linda Whitehead (44:43)
Katy Price (47:34)

Hopefully with a month to recover we’ll have a full strength team back for the next fixture. The next league match is Saturday 11th Jan. The race is at Park Hall Country park, Trentham.

The Warwickshire XC Champs deadline is 12th Dec. Let Jo know if you want to run. Email to tell her you want to run. Last year we took our first ever county team bronze medal in the senior women’s race. The race is Droitwich on Sat 4th Jan.
