First 53-12 fixture

It was a very bright and crisp Sunday morning for the first 53-12 league cross country at Abbeyfields, Colchester.  This was a flat 3 lap course.  
17 men and 8 women ran, as well as 7 juniors.
First Strider home was James Smith in 7th; the rest of the scoring team were Alex Manton 11th, Stuart Raven 31st, Paul Jeggo 45th, Mark Buckley 53rd, Jon Byford 68th, Gary Joslin 90th, and Gary Wright 101st. Men are 4th in Pool A after 1 fixture.
For the ladies, Sam Bilbie was first lady Strider in 8th, with the rest of the scoring team being Kym Eden 53rd, Juliet Warren-Penny 61st & Sharon Bannister 72nd. The women were 6th in Pool A.   
This makes a combined position of 5th after one fixture but there are plenty more to go.
The juniors put out a good team: Dylan Robins was first junior in 27th place and 2nd in his U11M age category, Gaby Bilbie was next in 62nd and 6th in U11F, Katie Brazier was 69th, Will Pugh 75th, Taylor Gooding 86th, Jess Pugh 93rd and Harry Pugh 145th. Juniors start the season in 6th.
Well done to everyone who ran.
