Also running was Adrian Williams (2nd claim) who finished in an amazing time of 26.48 (PB), 7th place overall.
MALVERN CROSS COUNTRY
A few of our more intrepid runners travelled to the Malvern hills to run in the cross country race on Saturday. A very hilly, muddy course of 2 loops for the ladies (6k) and 3 loops for the men (9k). What a great way to spend a beautiful sunny afternoon especially with the addition of homemade cakes for after!… James Thomas finished in 18th place in a time of 37.48. First home for the ladies was Sally Jamieson who finished in 36.51, followed by Sophie Dennett 37.08, Liz Thomas 37.42, Louise Abbott 44.44 and Jenny Hoffman 45.26. Well done, great results from everyone.
