On a windy and chilly night, Andy takes home the (massive) trophy which will be presented to him on Saturday night at the Christmas party. Congratulations!
Close behind in 2nd was Anna French who’s consistently improving every race and making a serious challenge for the Winter Grand Prix title. Anna also takes the fastest female with a time of 21:59. It was another podium finish for Emily James in 3rd. Fastest male on the night was Harry Coates… with a 16:02. Well done guys.
The overall table is heating up with Kevin Wilson taking a healthy lead, over Alan Heslington and Dan Weatherill in 2nd and 3rd respectively. Nina Wilkinson and Olly Aird share 5th place… However this can all change as the season continues. Next race is the Winter Championship on New Year’s day, where a massive 50 points is on offer.
Another week another mudfest! This time in Druridge Bay, Northumberland. Typical x-country conditions did not put a dampener on spirits though with our ladies deservedly rewarded for their gritty performance by being crowed first ladies team!
Sarah Robson (27.09) and Becki Newman (28.36) were our first and second females with determined runs by the rest of the team – Gillian Weatherall, Elaine Liu, Anna French, Leanne Smith, Julie Williams, Jeanette Gibson and Marion Dreano-Thwaite.
In the men’s race Harry Coates (37.14) and James Davis (39.36) were our top two green and golds. And there were gutsy performances from our juniors:
