LSV XC by Gary Stevens

Despite many members being in Palma or doing the Manchester Half there were still a good turn out of blue vest at Leigh for the first Red rose race of the season.
The conditions could not have been better, with warm sunshine and hardly any mud on the course, more like a trail race than a cross country.

Jackie Price led the ladies team home in the 5k 23.57 followed by Sue Fletcher 25.41, Linda Whittaker 26.24, Kerry Lomas 29.08 and Kay Campbell 31.30.

The men's race was 6.6 miles with Tim Campbell once again leading home the team in 40.14.  Simon Ford had a great race in 42.11, followed by Neil Hughes 44.13 and Gary Stevens 46.23.   Mark Collins made his first appearance in XC clocking 47.31 with Matt Thorpe 48.41 next still recovering from his GB Triathlon appearance in Mexico.  Scott Priestly 49.25 out sprinted Brendan Loughrey 49.26 and Kieron Lomas 49.31.  Chris Bennett 50.36 who thought it was 2 laps was next followed by Phil Spencer-Gray 54.47.

Once again thanks to everyone who came out to support us, your shouts were well received by all the runners.
