Posted: January 26, 2014 by RSCAC in Race reports

Midland XCWell done to everyone who braved the mud, Beacon Hill and the dreaded ditch at Newbold Comyn yesterday. There were some great performances with Megan McBrien providing the highlight by finishing 4th in the U20 women’s race. Other top performances came from Lewis Duval (25th – U13 boys), Shaun Evans (21st – U17 Men), Larna Partridge (26th – senior women) and Ollie Harradence (29th – senior men). The U13 boys and girls also did well in the team races finishing 8th and 7th respectively. Well done to everyone who ran!

The results are available on the Midland County AA website. Photos, including the one shown, are available on Dave Payne’s Mudrunner Photography Facebook page.

Tony and Meg are at the Regional Sportshall Finals with 4 of our Under 11s tomorrow, so there is no training for the sprints group.

Good luck to Freya, Lucy, Mia and Patience.
