The senior ladies started with a 10-strong team for the Middlesex XC championships on the Wormwood scrubs where a tough 8km course was hosted and supported by the volunteers at TVH.
Overall the ladies team won silver medals for their brilliant efforts. Well done to all runners.
First to return home for TVH was Tracy Barlow, not far behind the winner of the race she also secured herself a silver individual medal. Lisa da Silva, returning from injury, was the second TVH athlete in 4th place overall and Victoria Carter in 6th. Siana Jones was next to score finishing in 31st place.
Triathletes Lauren Morris (42nd), returning from a biking injury, and Jess Bass (51st), carrying a recent knee injury, came home next. It was a welcome return to XC for Andrea Broughton in 55th place. Barbara Maddison, despite suffering from a cold and losing her running partner (Christine) to a nasty cramp at the half-way point, managed to finish 67th. Frankie Lynch, who has shown immense dedication to the XC team this season, finished 75th in her longest ever distance in XC conditions.
It was also good to see our friends from West 4, who regularly train at the track. Well done Isobel Rea (9th, 33:40), Anna Critchlow (13th, 34:03) and Inkeri Abbots (40th, 37:57).
The under 20 ladies also did some excellent running earlier in the day alongside the under 17s race (5km). Well done to Alex Mundell, running in her new TVH vest (4th, 21:09) and Eve Goodhart, racing her first cross country race of the season, coming home in 8th, 24:17. Looking forward to more racing from these ladies with the senior team.
Both races were very well supported, many thanks to the folk who volunteered to help on the day.
