PECO XC Relays & Season Presentations

We had an excellent representation for the club today at the XC Relays at Barnbow fields.

In the inter-league competition between PECO XC and WYXC, the PECO league won by 4 points to 2.

We entered 6 teams and had Rhona Cameron running in the league representative F50+ vets team. So 19 runners in all.

We also had great support as usual from Emma Jane, the Bromley family, Bal & Mr Bal & the ever present Eric.

What is even better is that our team of Laura Hogg, Hannah Lee and Alyson Glover won the Female Open category!

On top of that our team of Robert Pratt, Alan Brydon and Andrew Cross won the Male Open category!

This is a great achievement for both teams.

The club gazebo came in very useful when the heavens opened during leg 3 and runners and spectators ran for shelter from a heavy hail storm.

In the season presentations the Ladies collected their runners up trophy and John Hutchinson won the M65 2nd place. Well done to the ladies and to John.

Charlies Angels: Paul Miller, Alyson Glover, Sam Broome
The good, the bad & the ugly: Alan Brydon, Rhona Cameron, Malcolm Taylor
The Three Musketeers : Chris Glover, Hikari Yamaguchi, Becky Dwyer

The Charlie’s Angels team came in first place and won the Sport Relief “Foot” trophy. Well done to all.

Had there been a prize for fancy dress, we would have come 1st, 2nd and 3rd.

Temple Newsam Parkrun – Purple Takeover

A very successful takeover of the parkrun hosting at Temple Newsam today by our own members.

Thanks to Sam for organising and all those members who came along to do a job or run in purple.

Thanks also, to all those park runners who wore something purple for this special day.

It was a very good turn out of 170 runners.
