A&T cross-country champs 07/02/15 – by Mark Riches

Yesterday was a memorable occasion; the inaugural A&T cross-country champs (Shaun’s vision) took place around GP. Shaun, Suzanne & I put the finishing touches to the course, which Shaun had marked out on the previous day before the rest of the runners arrived

We had 6 ladies & 10 men complete the race with Dave & Shaun marshalling and Barb as timekeeper.  Before the delayed start, Shaun took everyone around the majority of the course to ensure that nobody got lost 

Everyone set off together with the ladies running 2 laps (4 miles) and the men 3 laps (6 miles.) Everyone that is except Suzanne, who had a shoe malfunction and had to run to the car to put on another pair! Results were posted in my earlier Blog HERE

After the race we did a short warm down and the feedback was that everyone seemed to enjoy the well marked out, challenging course (well done Shaun)

It was then time for the presentation at GP where prize winners listed below were called up one at a time to chose a prize from various items of A&T kit (it resembled the Next sale at one point!) 

1st Josie 2nd Jackie 3rd Louise 
1st Vet Clare & ‘run of the day’ Suzanne

1st Tim 2nd Neil 3rd Jon H
1st Vet Mark R & ‘run of the day’ Stuart
