The three club championships have been progressing since the summer, so here’s an update of the results so far.
Club Championships Update January 2016
In the fell championships we decided to put more of a focus this year on the ever-popular summer evening races, and we’ve had 24 runners complete at least one race. With one race to go (Carding Mill Canter on 12th March) Kate Lightfoot and Peter Taylor have built up unassailable leads but it’s all to fight for in the minor places.
We are at the mid point of the Cross Country season with 3 races out of 5, and last year’s men’s champion Ali McNay is looking good for another victory, unless Peter Taylor can pull something out of the bag in the last two races. In the ladies competition it’s shaping up for a battle between Alice Robinson and Simone Norris for the queen of the mud title.
We’ve still got for 4 races to go in the road championship, and the ladies competition is wide open, with Laura Ashford, Jen Chambers and Grace Hart all scoring maximum points in one of the first 3 races. In the men’s competition Rod Jones has completed all of the races so far, but Andy Sudlow has scored a couple of victories, but will his impending trip to Australia scupper his chances to retain his trophy? The counter in the championship is the Abergele Borders League on 24th January so here’s to a good Tattenhall turnout for that.
