Bryn Bach 2018
Team managers Paul and Debbie report:
On a sunny summer’s day this would have been a beautiful race to both watch and take part in, however, it was not.
The weather conditions posed a tough race for our U11 girls team. Both girls setting off to a strong start into an even stronger wind. Holly Massey-Jones (13) ran a determined race and stormed her way around the boggy course. Zoe Hunt (56) also running a gutsy race, pushing hard for that final sprint finish.
Fleur Hayden with a plan to run a more paced race did exactly that today and was a very impressive 6th. Katie Beech ran well in 41st place, and we wonder what she’d do if she actually ate and drank something before running!? Ruby ‘have a go’ Claridge was our third runner coming in at 71st All ran well in very challenging conditions battling the wind to the end. Unfortunately, no 4th runner today to make a team.
I’d like to say the conditions had improved by the time of their race, it hadn’t. Not to be perturbed Megan Hornung ran a very impressive 3rd place looking strong throughout and continues to improve race by race. Next in was Danni Sinclair who’s not a great fan of the cold and rain but credit to her stuck at it and did well for a 7th place. 3rd in was Grace Claridge who does not love the cross country but never gives in and always treats us to a cracking sprint at the end to finish 27th Again in some awful conditions all the girls put in fantastic determined efforts. Sadly no 4th runner to complete a team.
