Cheshire XC Championship 13th Feb 10

Hi all

For full results please see the following link from the Cheshire AA website

4 Helsby runners made the start line and very well done to Roy Tunstall who took home the shiny gold medal for his age category!

Conditions were ideal for running but maybe a little cold for watching. The ground wasn’t as muddy as expected with some people using trainers instead of spikes. A very enjoyable afternoon out. Hopefully a link to some photographs will follow. Positions of Helsby runners as below.

37th Adair Broughton 42.13
65th Ian Landucci 46.31
102nd Roy Tunstall 56.04
104th Andy Smith 57.58

Please note the next xc is the spectrum organised North West Series at Birchwood Forest Park on Sunday 21st Feb 11.00am.

Following work by the co-host organisers and the referee in conjunction with Reaseheath College, the championships have been re-arranged for Saturday, 13th February, using the same time table and order of races.

Also if anyone would like entry to the Liverpool and District Cross Country Championships please let me know within the next few days as I will send the entries off by the weekend. The race is on Sunday 7th February 2010 at 11.00am. There are no entries on the day and no guest runners. I’ll just need your name and DOB. (For those people that have not already sent me their details.)
