Welsh Inter-Regional Cross Country Championships
A great day in beautiful but windy Builth on Saturday, the rain held off and the sun even shined until the end of the Men’s race! The course is definitely a good one – wooded single track, grass slopes and the standard flat (ish!) straights, so it was an enjoyable run too.
It’s always a good chance to work hard, and it paid off – Wendy Trimbel was 4th in her category (6th overall), completing the 5.1k course in 29.07, I managed a top 10 position of 9th in the Senior Women’s race (24.09). Also completing 2 large laps (6.1k), Nathan Jones was a fantastic 3rd overall in the U20 category (21.40). Last but not least, Dan Kashi battled the enduring wind and rain, completing the gruelling 10.06k course and coming in (TBC) 14th! Not everyone selected could make it due to various commitments, but very well done to everyone who did! Overall team results (and any updates to the above) to follow when available.
