Midland Cross Country Championships - Ladies (31/01/2016)

Bob Lynch writes,

A band of just four Tipton lasses braved the long journey and mud to represent the club today at Prestwold Hall. Penny Barber, Jo Acha, Sue Davies and Sophie Lynch were our starters and as we needed four counters, this was enough to record a team result. What's more, we got tenth place out of 25. The girls should be pleased with that, they beat some very strong clubs.

The 8k undulating course was well laid out but with the wet course and strong wind , it was heavy going all the way. Sophie came in 24th against some strong opposition, followed by Penny in 56th, Sue in 70th and Jo in 129th. All good results really.  

Just a word of thanks to the organisers who put on a good show at very short notice and who also provided enough Portaloos - for once there were no queues!
