Scunthorpe Cross Country – 9 November
No results yet but we know that Caroline Wheelhouse and George Westerman both took
part and they had great results!
George finished 2nd U15 boy.
Caroline said “ok – even at the age of 56 you’re (no, I’m) still capable of making ‘schoolboy’ errors! Second vet at Scunthorpe XC after being pipped at the post because I wasn’t sure where the finish line was…..only myself to blame but it was a good hard training run and I love XC! Must pay more attention!”.
The next South Yorkshire League cross country is on Sunday 16 November at Campsall Country Park. Numbers available from the cabin for £5
