The 4th race of the Herefordshire Cross country league took place today at a bright but snowy Fforest Fields. The organisers Builth had done a fantastic job to make sure that the race went ahead and wasn’t cancelled for a second time. A depleted Wye Valley Runners Ladies team ran superbly to finish fourth on the day and maintain their overall lead in the league. The men had a much better result to finish second on the day and move up to third overall. All to play for at the final fixture at Presteigne in 3 weeks time.

We now have the confirmed individual and team results from yesterdays 3rd Herefordshire League cross country race at Queenswood. The boys, although packing well, slipped to 5th on the day and 4th overall for the series. With the title now looking to be between Maldwyn Harriers and Builth, there is a lot of work to do in the final 2 races to get on the podium. The girls, led by a storming run from Jodie Newell (below), who won the individual race, comfortably one the ladies race and are leading the series.
