The final muddy event in the North Wales Cross Country League was held at Oswestry on Feb 6th.
The women`s team were again led home by Becky Taylor, followed by Tammy, Megan and Helen packing closely, then the ever reliable Ellie Salisbury and Maggie. This sealed the first Ladies and Ladies masters team shield and cup, as well as individual awards for Becky Taylor (5th lady), Tammy (1st W45), Helen (2nd W45) and Maggie (3rd W65). Don Williams did not have to run in Oswestry to be awarded the 1st m70, as he won the previous 4 races! (In order to be eligible for an individual award the athlete must run in at least 4 of the 5 events).
Undoubtedly Rob Samuel and Richard Roberts, who won so comfortably at Oswestry, would have had an individual award had they been able to do four rather than three events. Richard was backed by Owen Roberts who finished a superb 8th, then the ever faithful Arwel Lewis and Steve Ll Jones. Even though the men were penalised again for not having a full team, they managed to hold on to the 3rd team award!
Well done to all who competed for the club this year in the league and the North Wales Champs! Congratulations and good luck to Rob Samuel and Bronwen Jenkinson (u20) who have been selected for the UK Inter Counties in Birmingham on March 12th.
