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.
Brilliant running from Janet Robertson saw her secure first place V40 and Jackie Keasley following strongly behind was 3rd V50. Well done.
Ladies positions as follows:
14th JANE ASHBROOK 41:56
20th JANET ROBERTSON 43:53
25th RACHEL ARNOLD 46:31
32nd JACKIE KEASLEY 49:37
Mens positions as follows:
26th ADAIR BROUGHTON 45:37
72nd STEVE RILEY 51:28
106th PHIL GILLARD 57:49
115th ANDY SMITH 1:00:12
Thanks also to Ian Landucci for turning up but suffered an injury mid race and to Joe for his usual and brilliant support on course.
