Now a wee scribe by Michelle for the ladies: Well done to all of the Elswick women on Saturday (and also the the girls) for their performances on Saturday yesterday in challenging conditions. The U17/20 girls came in in 7th place, the senior women in 12th place and the vet women in 3rd place. A special mention goes to Robyn Bennett who won the U17/U20 race. Well done all!
The gents from the club competed admirably well and again, congratulations to each and every runner who competed. As Michelle said, it was certainly challenging conditions for everyone. The Vets team of Lee, Paul & Jason all finished between 30th & 70th places, combining to take the Vets title and the win! Congratulations gents.
The Vets and the remaining boys and senior men’s results, combined to give a very respectable overall placing of 14th place out of 56 teams. A fine overall result indeed.
