THE RUNDOWN 14TH JANUARY: XC LEAGUE RACES & PARKRUN

XC League Races 

Both the men’s and Ladies’ teams were in action this week. First up were the ladies over at Pelsall Common near Walsall: a short, fast course which also saw some speedy times and great performances, with the team coming 4th overall and 3rd overall in the Masters results. Captain Jess Woolley led the team home (9th overall) and excellent “pack effort” seeing Myshola Kirkham, Monica Green. Amanda O’Leary and Anna Delaney all finish with the same minute window, all taking top 30 places. Thanks to Jane Evans also for providing the volunteering position and of course enthusiastic support and also to Janice Lisiecki!

Meanwhile the Men’s team were over in Bromsgrove, seeing Matt Hipwell lead the team home with a top 30 place, closely followed by Gareth Wainwright, Chris Morgan and Greg Turner. The Team were 10th out of 13 teams overall, and and excellent 3rd in the Masters league.
