The 'Rundown' - 29th October 2018

The 'Rundown' - 29th October 2018

The cross country season kicked off with two strong teams at Launde Abbey, and an impressive third place for Geoff Beetham and fourth for Kristie Matthiae. There were six hours of Hell on the Humber for Helen James and Andrea Winkless, with Helen coming in as second female in the race that incredibly turned out to be her 200th marathon/ultra! Amber Lester came second in the Leicestershire 10K and Sam Cleveland earned second place at the Skeleton Run.
