English Cross Country Championships - Ladies Report (27/02/2016)

Bob Lynch Writes,

Not the best of days for the Tipton lasses today. A heavy uneven course made it difficult for them to show their best and to be honest, they were happy when it was all over - Amie commented that never had she known an 8k race seem to last so long!

Tipton starters were Amie, Sophie, Sue Davies, Penny and Jo. They finished as follows: Amie 105th in 35.33, Sophie 136th in 36.22, Sue 243rd in 39.24 and close behind Penny 261st in 39.43. Jo finished bravely 561st in 47.37. 739 ran overall and the Tipton team achieved 27th place (four to count).

One to put behind them perhaps but we have the Inter Counties and Road Relays to look forward to and hopefully better conditions for racing.
