PECO XC – Golden Acre Park

Well done to all those who ran for the club in the second PECO race of the season. There were 46 of us in total, which is a great club effort.

There were 598 runners in total.

The ladies came 2nd in the premiere division and move up into 2nd place in the league of 9 teams after two races. A fantastic result!

The mens team came 8th in the premiere division which means they slip to 7th in the league of 9 teams after two races.

Christmas Meal

Over 40 of us had a very enjoyable evening at the Sheesh Mahal again. We also learned more about the club via the quiz, such as the total number of couples in the club (13) and the average age of the members (38). I’m sure we will be paying more attention to the colours of vests of other club runners as well! Very well done to the winning team (the VIPs) scoring 53 out of 60 and who were Jill Buckley, Jason Buckley, Paul Miller, Russell Bromley, Claire Bromley and Scott Anderson.

Thanks again to Jill for organising the meal. Next up…. the Christmas Fuddle on the 23rd.
