UK European XC Trials Monday 26 November 2018

Last Saturday at Sefton Park Liverpool, the XChallenge (Race 3) took place that included the UK European Trials for Senior, U23, U20, age groups. Wales had a very good day on a dry fast course, with individual wins for Charlotte Arter in senior women, Cari Hughes in U20W, and Jake Heyward in U20M. Wales have 7 runners in GB teams for European Championships to be held in Tilburg Denmark.

Cardiff's Charlotte Arter win in a loaded field that included UK's best senior runners. One can see from the picture at race finish, how close the chasing pack are. 

Charlotte missed out on taking part in this summers Eurpean Track Championships due to a tendon injury. Thus meant a summer of rehab treatment, and then returning to training, to be ready for the Cross Country season.

Ciaran Lewis 2013

The second Gwent League was held in Pembrey Park last Saturday. After the awful weather there last month with Welsh RR's, it was better, allthough we experienced very heavy rain showers driven by a srong wind until 1pm. The course surface was firm underfoot, with sand on course, flattened by the heavy rain showers, making it easier to run over for the runners.

In the senior men's race, 410 starters, 405 finished. Cardiff's Ciaran Lewis was a clear winner winning by 17secs, at finish, Ciaran said, that was tough, course was testing with a series of hills around the 5km large lap. As other Cardiff runners finished, they made same comment. Besides the hills it was the strong wind that all experience around the course and into the finishing straight. Stephen Morris 7th with Jake Smith 9th. Our final 2 runners making a team score James Chambers 130th and Paul Edwards 349th. After 2 meetings our senior men's team is overall in 12th place.
