The Midlands Ladies Cross Country season ended on a high @ Warwick Uni hosted by Kenilworth Runners on a muddy but reasonably flat 3.5 mile course. (compared to others). Everyone commented how much they enjoyed it and they all saw a huge improvement in their running times from previous races.
We had a massive turnout of 30 ladies running in total with an average of 24 ladies running in each of the 4 events. This has been a huge rise in ladies competing compared to previous years and I can only see this rising year on year as the club grows and XC becomes increasingly popular.
The first 4 ladies to cross the finish line and earn the club precious points were Vir Silio, Lizzie Dobson, Marie Edmunds and Jess Rexworthy. This was the same for the previous 2 events with only a slight change at the 1st race held in Leamington with 1st 4 counters being Vir Silio, Lizzie Dobson, Jess Rexworthy and Emily Nash.
The 1st 3 masters were Paula Shore-Marston, Cathy McKeown and Zoe Moore. Other ladies to also score for the Masters have been Cristina Semple, Kathy Neeson and Julia Minty.
There have been a total of 38 ladies who have ran in at least one race and 8 who have ran in all 4.The team came 9th on the day out of 26 teams in total with the masters being placed 14th out of 20. (see attached results)
The team finished 11th overall out of 25 teams and the Masters 15th out of 20.
The whole season has been a roaring success and one I have thoroughly enjoyed. There are too many ladies to name so I have attached a list but I would like to thank every single lady that has participated and the effort from everyone has been amazing. The support has also been fantastic and has only added to the success. The camaraderie between all the members has been infectious and the club can’t be beaten on team spirit. I think we also make the best cake in the land!
Well done everyone and let’s make next season an even bigger affair!
