Cross Country – final report – the results are in!
Well done to everyone who represented the club during this season’s cross country league – results to be proud of! Big thanks also to Jenks and Arwel for making sure we all got there and back.
Oswestry also gave us some mud, wind and rain to be proud of too – there wasn’t much hanging around, apart from for cakes and prizes! Gritty determination on the day by Craig Jones, Ali Chant (brilliant job in his first ever cross country), Arwel Lewis, Dylan Owen, Steve Jones and Dave Kirkby with a great turnout from the ladies too including Andrea Rowlands, Bronwen Jenkinson, Wendy Trimbel, Becki Law, Megan Hughes, Hayley Turner, Sandra Rowlands, Ellie Salisbury and Helen Blair.
At the end of the cross-country season, here are the overall results….
The ever-strong Don Williams was first M70, Arwel 3rd M55, with the male vets team coming in at an impressive 3rd in the league overall! The Senior Men’s team, with valiant efforts to bring us up from the bottom came in at 4th – just missed out on 3rd by a 6 point margin!
Eryri ladies were 2nd in the league overall, Andrea and Megan were a fantastic 1st and 2nd overall in the F35 category, with Andrea coming in at 4th overall in the ladies category too! More trophies for Ellie Salisbury who was 3rd in the F50 category, Maggie Oliver who was 2nd in the F65 category and last but not least, Bronwen was also a fantastic 3rd FU17.
It goes without saying that these achievements are not easy to come by – it takes considerable commitment, effort and willingness to battle it out in what can be quite a fast and furious field! Very well done and thank you to everyone who represented the club throughout the season.
P.S. I have a bag full of shiny medals and trophies, will see you soon (you hopefully know who you are!).
The full results will be posted to the NWCCL website eventually, link here.
