Liverpool XC by Gary Stevens

On a busy weekend of races just 8 A&T'ers made the journey to compete in the Liverpool XC at Sefton Park which incorporates the Great Britain European trials, meaning the quality was of a very high standard.  Foggy freezing conditions greeted us, which had a festive feeling to the race.
The first task of the day was trying to erect the tent which Simon and Neil completed in no time, along with the club flag.
Just before the ladies start, Sue and Linda did a Steve Coleman and turned up 5 minutes before the gun meaning they missed the start by a few seconds but managed to work their way through the field to complete the 8k, Sue clocking 37.09 and Linda 39.36.
Next it was the mens race.  In a field of almost 700 runners Tim was first club runner home in 36.25.  Neil 38.37 just pipped Simon 38.53 with Gary 43.01.  Scott 44.23 and Phil 46.17 both had good runs to complete the 10k muddy course.

Well done everyone.
