Heaton Park XC

13 Glossopdale Harriers made the journey to Middleton on a thoroughly wet day to compete at the SOUTH-EAST LANCS XC fixture at HEATON PARK. The race was also the last counter in the 2015 Club Championships and a chance to earn some valuable points at the end of the year. Caity Rice had a tremendous run to win the Senior Women’s race in the very heavy conditions. She was well supported by Kirsty Johnson who finished 4th, Jo Brack and Lins Palmer.  Tim Budd finished was first back in the men’s race closely pursued by Chris Jackson. Debutant Saul Lovatt had an excellent race to be next counter.
