Cheshire xc championships

Well done to everybody who took part in the Cheshire Championships XC at the weekend.

It was a muddy course, designed by Julian from Spectrum, with zig-zag funnels through puddles and some disappearing and reappearing logs to jump over and many small hills to climb, on the multi-lap course at Birchwood Forest Park.

It was four laps for the senior ladies and five for the men. Full result, although provisional for now can be found here

So it is with great delight I can inform you that our ladies vets secured 2nd place overall! (Jane, Janet and Rachel). Be sure to congratulate them.
