Eryri strong in the field at Lilleshall

North Wales Cross Country League – Lilleshall – 12th January 2013

From being worried about fielding a womens team at Lilleshall, the club actually had six representatives in the end. The course was very heavy, muddy and wet and the afternoon cold and overcast but no snow! Bronwen Jenkinson (U17) led the team home, followed by Joanne Moore (W40) running strongly in her second cross country, Ellie Salisbury (W50), Hayley Turner, Sioned Rowlands straight back from warm weather training, and Maggie Oliver (W60).

The mens team continued their precarious existence from Wrexham with just having the required six members! However on the plus side there was a great cross country debut by Martin Cliffe (M40) finishing in 16th position, followed by good packing from Antony Bethell 31st (M45), Adrian Williams 32nd (M40), Arwel Lewis 40th (M50), a super sprint finish from Dils 70th (M40) and Paul Jenkinson 75th (M40). Well done Vets but where are all the Senior Men? Team positions are not known yet but hopefully with a good turn out in Oswestry on February 2nd the mens team could still win and the women will still be in medal contention. Well done everyone for giving up their Saturday to make the long trek over the border.

The North Wales Cross Country Championship is at the Rhug Estate, near Corwen (LL21 OEH) on Saturday 26th January. Pre entry is by January 21st on a form that can be downloaded from the northwalesxc website. Entry is possible on the day and costs an extra £2. Lets have a good turn out from the club to support this event. Minibus going to Oswestry but not Rhug – try to lift share!

Cross Country Update

Wrexham Cross Country Report (24/11/12)
Well done to the Eryri stalwarts who turned out for the club at the above event. Thanks to Jos Jones and Joanne Moore who are relative newcomers to running for Eryri in cross country and without whom we would not have had the bare minimum required to score without being penalised!
The women had the necessary four required plus Maggie with a broken wrist and the men had six.
Rob Samuel was first in for the men in overall second place in 29.12, followed by Matt Ward (33.03), Adrian Williams (33.39), Anthony Bethell (34.06), Jos Jones (34.12) and Arwel Lewis (34.18).
The women bunched well with Jenny Heming (21.51), Megan Hughes (22.41), Joanne Moore (22.42), Ellie Salisbury (22.58) and Maggie Oliver (28.36).

The men were third overall on the day but have maintained their large aggregate lead by 270 points in front of Deeside.
The women were fifth but are still second overall and only 17 points behind Colwyn Bay on aggregate.

There will be a minibus going to the next event on 12th January in Telford (Lilleshall). Contact Jenny for details of pick up and times in the New Year. Please come if you can, your club needs you!
