Ladies out in force at Heaton Park

Report: Gillian Doolan -

The first cross country race of the Manchester Cross Country League was a very successful one for the senior ladies’ team.

The weather was kind and the Heaton Park course as challenging as ever.

With 14 ladies able to race we had a strong team, Carmen Byrne came home first in 11th place overall closely followed by Kerrie Wood-Doyle, Jayne Lawton and Rachel Blight. This team of 4 came 4th overall in the team standings and the Veteran team came 2nd.

This is a great start to the season and everyone who attended had a great day.

The team members were:

Carmen Byrne Helen Todd
Kerrie Wood-Doyle Amy Barter
Jayne Lawton Maureen Wilkins
Rachel Blight Louise Harrison
Helen Garner Helen Fraser
Gillian Doolan Sophie Seingier
Amanda Trivett Hilary West

Well done to everyone, there were several best times and some first time cross country runners.

Next race is at Sherdley Park, St. Helens,  Sunday 13th November – see you all there.
