Borders League Race 1 and Cross Country

What an excellent day! For the first Borders League race at Tattenhall we had 25 runners out - 5 ladies and 20 men. And we had two strong teams out too with some excellent performances. But it was tough going with a big, high-class field. But an excellent result in both ladies and men's race. Solid performance from the ladies and an excellent 10 finishers in 101 places for the men. Particularly important is that with such a strong team we had a lot of runners just outside the scoring places. Very important because they push the other teams back, giving them a higher score. 

Great to see Allen Smith enjoying his first race in the league, and Margaret back from injury. Provisional results are below.

Just a reminder that the next Cross country is next Saturday 23rd November. It is at Wrexham - not Northop. It has been changed because the North Wales Championship in January has been moved to Northop.

  1. Just for info - what a fine effort - 25 runners is probably a club record (not sure as I haven't been able to check it) But that means that just over 50% of the club turned out. Well done everybody.
