It was a great turn out on Sunday for the Green Army at Runcorn Town Park for the 4th race in the North West X-Country League. There were some great results by Helsby49949250_10157062050528799_3640539959422615552_o individuals but the show was stolen on the day by the Helsby ladies team. Helsby’s
Hannah Cowley won the ladies race, but with Jenny Illidge (13th) Laura Baynham-Hughes (18th) and super running from the rest of the ladies, first place in the team race was also secured by Helsby ladies – Brilliant work! While in the mens race, Chris Fitzpatrick was first back for Helsby in 20th. Other good individual finishes in the mens race meant that Helsby men finished 12th from 23 on the day in 49238895_10157062065938799_4510967429018419200_owhat was a very competitive field. Well done everybody! It was also great to see a lot of support from Helsby non-runners around the course. Andy Smith was also out there with his camera again and took some great action pictures that can be seen HERE

With two more fixtures still to go in the series there is still everything to run for. Full results and details of the next two fixtures can be seen HERE
