Oswestry XC – trophies for the overall league
Final cross-country league news and we have brought back the senior and masters ladies winners trophies again and we have also managed to stay in Division 1 – well done to EVERYONE who took part this year!
We had a super 6 strong team of men at Oswestry with Richard Roberts having a fantastic battle with third place and came in second overall, withMatthew Fortes coming in 16th overall, followed by Russell Owen (52nd), Ben Beachell (70th), Arwel Lewis (77th) and Eurwyn Edwards (128th).
The ladies also had a fantastic turn out with Bronwen Jenkinson coming in first lady, followed by Miranda Grant in (4th), Andrea Rowlands (5th), Becki Law, Helen Blair, Ellie Salisbury and Viv Edwards. Huge congratulations to all who took part across the league this year.
There were some fantastic overall individual performances in the league too with Matthew Fortes coming second in the V40 category. Andrea Rowlands was 3rd senior lady overall in the league and 1st V40. Helen Blair was 3rd in the V45 category and Viv Edwards was 2nd in the V60 category.
This is fantastic to see as it is hard enough completing enough races in the league, but also amongst a high standard of runners. Really nice to see the hard work pay off – congratulations everyone! Becki
