A busy weekend, what with a well attended XC, and a few races around the country.
At the Manchester XC the GDH cohort seem to have had a fantastic time, it was the last one of the series (I think), and there is the added complication of people’s overall series finishing positions, which I have no idea about, so I’ll concentrate on today’s results, and when I get the series results explained to me, I’ll post them up separately).
9th Kirsty Johnson 32:28 (16th overall)
4th Zoe Barton 33:04 (and only 1 second off being 3rd!) (25th overall)
15th Alison Holt 42:41 (138th overall)
42nd Dan Oldham 43:41 (252nd overall)
35th Sikobe Litaba 39:44 (189th overall)
15th John Stephenson 46:00 (217th overall)
Our sole representative at Windy Hill fell race appears to have done well, but all I have is a result to go by…. so I have no idea how much he enjoyed it.

A few Park runners were also about, with Carl, Beryl, Dan E and Jon M at Marple, and Steve “the Dark” Knight putting in a sub 20 at Lyme park.
Neil McGraw had a stonker on Sunday getting to within 4 mins of his Dads half Marathon PB, with a 1:24:28. (apologies, I haven’t a clue where it was…), Paul Stitt was also out and about Half marathoning, but I haven’t seen his time yet.

Good work all, I hope you enjoyed your respective runs, I’m sure that the non-racing contingents had a great time on Bleaklow/Kinder/wherever on Sunday. Twas a decent day to be out.
