XC Winter Series: Race 1

Men’s Race

Winter is approaching and there for means the start of the Cross Country Season! The first men’s fixture took place at Pittville Park in Cheltenham with some fantastic Running from all those involved, with many of the top six finishing within a minute of each other! As Division one and Two all raced together there has been a delay in results – they will be added here as soon as they are published!

Ladies’ Race

It was perfect conditions for the first XC race of the season over at Aldridge and entering into Division 2. The team finished in a very competitive 4th place on a flat(ish) but very muddy course! We had 9 ladies racing, Jess Woolley led the team finishing in 17th place overall in followed by Myshola Kirkham, Monica Green, Anna Delaney, Kate Leeson, Kirsty Wise, Hannah Hopkins, Kathy Bailey and Katie Price, with Jane Evans and Janice Lisiecki providing excellent support on the day! A promising start and looking forward to the next race on the 2nd December in Stratford – it would be good to see even more ladies taking part in the next race (Captains Katie Price and Jess Woolley can provide details if you don’t already have them)
