A&T X-Country Saturday 21st November 2015 at Bolton – by Mark Riches

A&T X-Country Saturday 21st November 2015 at Bolton – by Mark Riches

Another good turnout of 6 ladies & 9 men, despite the bitterly cold weather. James Bentall was acting x-country captain, again, as I was working at the Etihad Stadium

The ladies set off to tackle the very challenging 5k course and Josie Maley just got the better of Suzanne Gregory 24.50 to 25.05. They were followed home by Susan Fletcher (25.46) and Michelle Fairclough (30.34) next it was Tracy Loughney (33.39) who took after race treats to a whole new level with the amount of chocolate she brought along for the team with Clare Unsworth (33.51) completing the A&T line-up – well done ladies. Finally, a big well done to Hannah Warburton who ran as a guest and finished in a time of 33.39

Next it was the turn of the men; 10.2k this time. First A&T finisher, again, was Tim Campbell (39.52) followed home by Brendan Loughney (45.36) The next 2 finishers Scott Priestley (48.23) and Chris Scholes (48.26) had a ‘battle royal’ followed home by Kieron Lomas (50.14) James (50.37) and Paul Basnett (51.52) with Ian Hamilton (56.43) and Rob Foster (58.51) completing the line-up – well done lads

Thanks again to James for looking after the tent, flag & numbers again while I was consoling City fans at the Etihad!

Next race in the club champs is on Saturday 28st November at Sefton Park Liverpool – make a note in your diaries
