Women’s 6 Stage
A terrific performance from our Ladies saw a 5th place finish, even with a late change due to illness.
Racheal Burns lead the team off with the third fastest long leg and Danielle Webb moved the team into second after leg 2. Hannah Delaney ran leg 3, Megan Ball the second long leg followed by Charlotte Wilson-Dewhurst with Abbie Oliver on the last leg. Leeds won the title, followed by Rotherham and Salford.
Men’s 12 Stage
The men were slightly depleted due to other commitments and unavailability, but we did manage to get two teams out with the men’s A team finishing 6th and the B team 33rd
The A team started really well with John Ashcroft and Jamie Webb on the first two legs. John ran the third fastest long leg and Jamie the fifth fastest short leg. Lincoln won the title with Salford second and Stockport third.
