Runners of the Day – Markfield XC

Well done to all who took part in the Markfield Cross Country. Having so many runners has made the selection of Runners of the Day for Andrea and me very difficult.

Many of those for whom it was their first time, I hope you enjoyed it, keep coming and tell everyone else; the more the merrier

For the men Kevin Higham gets runner of the day with another strong performance, well done keep it up (work permitting!).

There were many other impressive performances with George Birt 8th, Ben Harding 9th and Matthew Johnson 30th.

For the ladies, making her senior debut, Bethan Padbury is runner of the day. Beth was first lady back for Hinckley. She had a great race with a very good place, 15th,  and time

Katy Grainger, 31st, continues to improve and was 2nd lady for Hinckley. Kate Perkins continues to do really well too; the bump isn’t holding her back yet, looking good for her post baby personal bests.

Once again well done to Kevin Higham and Beth Padbury and thank you all who took part.
