Cross country report for committee meeting (4th December 2013)
Maggie Oliver and Becki Law had an enjoyable handover meeting in the Caban after the Sunday Morning Run at the weekend (fingers crossed I can do as good a job as Maggie has done over the past few years!).
Maggie kindly covered for me at the Wrexham fixture last weekend (see website for report). Current standings are as follows:
Senior Men – 8th at Wrexham (with penalty), now 6th in the league (from 1st)
Masters Men – 9th at Wrexham, 3rd in league
O70’s Men – Don Williams 1st by a long way!
Senior Women – 5th on the day, 3rd to 2nd in the league
Masters Women – 3rd on day, 2nd in league
Last but by no means least, Maggie (and others I think, who I haven’t had a chance to find on the website today!?) represented Wales in the British and Irish Masters Cross Country International in November – the ladies team earned a fantastic Bronze medal!
I’ll double-check all of the above results and standings etc and update the website soon.
Looking forward to the next fixture at Lilleshall on 18th January, will be looking to organise (hopefully free!) transport for everyone. Soon coming up, there is also the Welsh Inter-regional Championships on December 14th in Builth Wells, I’ve emailed the 16 athletes who have been selected to run and am awaiting replies. Will look to confirming transport arrangements for this one too.
I will also be nabbing/cajoling people at Lilleshall and the fun run for representatives at the North Wales Championships in Northop on 25th January. This also forms the Welsh Masters Cross Country Championships so I will be encouraging members via the weekly to enter this if they’d like to. Please accept my apologies at this event as I’ll be on route back from a ski trip, will make it if I can!
I think that’s it for now, please do feel free to let me know if I’m missing anything/anyone.
