The North Wales XC League fixture at Northop on Saturday saw the Whippets again field full teams - something a number of other clubs failed to do. As a result our men now sit 6th in their league and the women 8th in theirs. The men's team comprised Rob Sharam, Dean Richards, Simon Phillips, Peter Holmes,  James Rainbow, Rob Ingham and Simon Roberts. The women's team was made up of Jo Grandfield, Rachel Foster and Liz Featherstone.

The final fixture is at the Marches School in Oswestry on the 2nd February. Full teams are again needed if we are to match last season's league placings of Men 5th and Women 7th.

Cross Country

13th January

Saturday's main event was the penultimate cross country fixture at Northop but you'll have to wait for those results! Parkrunners were in action at Delamere, Shrewsbury, Telford, Erddig, Penrith and Bodelwyddan Castle. No pbs to report Results

8th January

Just caught up on some results from 1st Jan thanks to Liz Rankin. And I thought you all had better things to do! It seems that a number of you doubled up in parkruns: Delamere and Northwich - Lee Dale, Michael Starkey, Sarah Berry, James Gresty, Lisa Dale and Liz Rankin. Shrewsbury and Telford - Dean Richards, Simon Roberts and Jenny Stiles. The Wammy and Hanley - Fi Leatham.

Congratulations to Gary Gray, Natalie Stevenson and Jenny Stiles who all set new pbs!

Next year, can you all please party harder the night before.

7th January

It was County Championship weekend for Cross Country with championship races taking place in most counties as a prelude to Area and National Championships. This year's Shropshire Championship was held at Oswestry and saw the Whippets field both Men's and Women's teams.

Saturday also saw Sarah Gill do the Wirral 10k. There was also a smattering of parkruns with Lee Dale setting a new PB at Delamere. Well done, Lee!

2nd January

Happy New Year, Whippets!

It appears that a number of you wanted a parkrun for Christmas and so ventured over to Delamere on the 25th. Julie Collins came away with a new PB. Well done, Julie! Ali Dolphin meanwhile did the Walsall parkrun on christmas Day.

If there are any more results for 2018 please let me know before this weekend. The rollover to the New Year will mean I will not be entering 2018 results after Saturday. There may also be a delay in entering results this weekend as I wrestle with this annual task. And, it's also quite possible that I'll screw a few things up. You have been warned.
