Saturday 20th January saw the 4th race in the 2017/18 North Wales Cross Country five race series. The race hosted by Shrewsbury AC, consists of a 5.5m run around the grounds of Walford College in Baschurch. The course is an interesting and tough one, there is the usual river crossing and new this year a wall to jump over.
As expected at this time of the year, The weather forecast was not good and the snow showers on the journey up there definitely promised an interesting day. We managed to get our gazebo set up on a dryish patch to try and protect from the weather, but it soon turned into a mudbath…made worse by the waiting around and freezing conditions.
As always, first up at 2pm were the Over 70’s and ladies. Representing Buckley, there were 10 ladies and 2 over 70’s.
Over 70’s Results
Next up at 2:45pm were the men. Representing Buckley, there were 15 men.
