A&T X-country Liverpool 28/11/15 – by Mark Riches

As usual this Mid Lancs fixture was held in conjunction with the British Athletics Cross Challenge, which means we get to run with Britain’s best runners like this year’s men's winner Ross Millington pictured above, who completed the 9.8k course in an amazing 30.09

7 A&T runners made the 45 minute journey to Liverpool this year. It was Kieran Lomas’ turn to cover for me as x-country captain (thanks Kieran)

The 3 A&T ladies Jackie Price, Sue Fletcher and Michelle Fairclough were the first to tackle the 8.1k course. It was a very big field (292 finishers) and Jackie (36.16) was first A&T finisher. Followed by Sue (37.53) and Michelle (46.17) – well done ladies

Next it was the turn of the men (9.8K this time) to tackle this fast flat course along (574 finishers in this one!) Tim Campbell (38.20) was first A&T finisher. Scott Priestley (46.35) and Kieran (47.42) were next with Paul Basnett (49.01) completing the line-up – well done lads

Next race Saturday 5 December at Marl Pitts
