Results Round Up From Gnoll Park & Cwrt Herbert

Sunday 22nd October was round 2 of 6 in the West Glamorgan Cross Country League held at Gnoll Park. There was an excellent turnout from the club of almost 40 runners, in some extremely heavy underfoot conditions after all the recent rain. Our first 5 men and women home were:

Men: Marc Hobbs had a comfortable victory and was followed across the line by 4th well placed James Dean, 10th Eamonn Kirk, 12th Ifan Lloyd and 14th Craig Jones. This great team result will no doubt keep them towards the top of the league if not the very top.

Women: 3rd Helen Marshall had her usual strong run, brand new club member Catherina Rennie had a great run for 4th, just one place behind was Hannah Munday in 5th, 6th Helen-Marie Davies and with Rebecca Bennett placing 7th the club could not ask for more filling so many of the top 10 placings. The team are bound to extend their lead at the top of the league table when the match points are out, but there are still 4 fixtures to go, so all could change.

Our thanks to all those who were out representing the club, click here for the full results.
