Wye Valley Runners wish to thank Hereford Couriers and particularly Clive Rowberry for putting on a great XC at Westhope last night. The venue was well signposted and the course was extremely well signed and marshalled. Thanks also to Mike Blenkinsop and the league organisers for their efforts and support.
It was another great turn-out from the Valley fielding an incredible 37 of 103 runners and there is a really great team spirit in evidence at the moment which is really nice to see. Based on the pre-race chat not many of us were looking forward to the race due to the combination of a warm evening , hilly course and rock hard ground . Still nice to get some warm weather for a change.!!
There were some really good performances from the men and women in most categories. James Richards won the men’s race with another fine performance and Mr Consistency John Pullen took 3rd place. Jeremy Jehan (11th), Steven Flowers (12th), Martin Whitefoot (20th) and Adam Michinok (23rd) were also well placed. Becki Davies put in another terrific run to win the womens race with Daneen Hughes finishing 4th lady overall. Laura Tootell (5th), Jo Morgan Rolfe (6th) , Becki Ansfield (10th) and Danca Machackovw (11th) were also well placed.
Some pictures have already been posted on facebook and more pictures will be posted on flickr as soon as we get an opportunity and will let you know once this is done. Race results will also be posted shortly.
