Midland Women’s League Newbold Comyn, Leamington Spa – Sat 7th November 2015 Print

ImageWhat a great turnout and performance from all the ladies on Saturday - 9 of 'em, yes, 9.

A word from the ladies captain

The morning downpour ceased and the blue skies appeared just in time to create perfect X country conditions. It's easy to see why Leamington is such a popular course ( THAT DITCH alone caused much entertainment!) and the ladies certainly came out in force. The sight of nine Sparkhill vests on the start line was a very proud moment.

Excellent individual performances resulted in a fantastic team finishing position. The evidence of healthy competition throughout the team certainly stands us in good stead for the remainder of the season. Well done to all and we eagerly await the next challenge.... possibly with a little less mud!


After the 'spa' treatment.

National XC relays, Mansfield, Sat 31st October 2015 Print

ImageIt's always a pleasure running this race (well as much as any XC race can be a pleasure) and so it was this year. The course did not seem affected by the recent rain and was still in great condition after all the juniors and ladies had taken turns to churn it up.

For the first time in a number of years we were able to field 2 complete men's teams and a complete ladies team. Some very strong running all bodes well for the coming season. Well done to Craig and Jenny for marshalling their troops so well and ensuring this fantastic turnout and performance.
