Bristol & West Athletes Compete in UK Cross-Challenge

17 Nov

Four club athletes appeared in the results of the UK Cross-Challenge event held at Milton Keynes on Saturday 12th November 2016. The senior events included a Chiltern League race as well as a Royal Air Force against Oxford University match. In the Senior Men’s race Will CHRISTOFI showed he is moving through the gears as the winter unfolds by taking eighth place in a classy field in 29:44. Owain JONES continues to race and train within limitations set by his knee niggles and on a course with some very short sharp climbs and descents was satisfied with twenty-first place exactly one minute behind Will in 30:44. Our third finisher – like Will also running for Oxford University – was Miles CHANDLER who finished thirty-sixth in 31:45.

Word has it that Charlotte TAYLOR-GREEN started the senior ladies’ race but failed to finish feeling generally stiff. Our only finisher was Olympian Claire HALLISSEY having a run out for her second claim club St Albans Striders in the Chiltern League: Claire finished forty-second in 22:27
