Ladies (3 miles)
MV60+ race (3 miles)
Men’s race (approx 4.5 miles)
Well done to all who ran, maximum points in the XC league have been achieved which should keep the ladies team in a prize winning 5th place and the men in a very competitive 8th.
Thanks to our captains for all their encouragement and to all who came along to support, feed and cheer.
A special mention to Stephen Craig who stopped to come to the aid of a fellow runner who was involved in a nasty collision.
The club championship standings will be released soon by the captains. It looks like Trudy will continue to lead the ladies and Brian the men. But it’s early days with 9 more events to come.
Thanks to NiRunning, Eric Fairfield, Edward Cooke, John T Glover, Ian Reid, Gerald Harvey, Gillian Sykes, Brian Todd, Stephen Craig and Elizabeth Leitch for the photos.
