Race report 2015
The blue and green vests were a formidable team and raced brilliantly over the varied terrain in a variety of weather. The younger ones coping with the heat and the U14’s and U17’s having incredibly slippy conditions in the downpour.
Congratulations to the girls – Emma Duxbury winning the U8 girls, Sophie R sprinting in to be the U10 girls winner and Chloe R not only winning the U14 girls trophy (having only turned 12 two days previously) but being the 1st lady home with a new course record!
