X-Country Race Report

Good evening
                      On a chilly (flippin freezing) morning the XC men
and woman went to Beacon park for the annual hill/mud run and we had a
whale of a time.  The air was nearly as blue as my fingers!!!!  How
the girls doing the free massages could do it got me, how they found
the legs of runners must of been a challenge.

Praise for the Borders!

"Hi: a quick note to thank you all: my first time in Birkenhead Park,
and I enjoyed it hugely.

I thought your organisation was excellent - many thanks for the hot tea
beforehand and the hot showers afterwards.

Thanks to all the marshals and everyone who helped.

Yours

BAC hosts Borders League at Birkenhead Park - 11/01/15

Many thanks for all the support
this morning at the Borders League race hosted by Birkenhead AC, the
initial feedback has been very positive.  The flexiblity shown by
everyone on a cold - windy day shows how far the club has gone over the
last few years.  Hearing the marshalls give out praise to all runners
proves we welcome all.  A lot of work has gone in from the first email
back in June to the last ones going tomorrow and equipment being
returned.

Thanks again to everyone

From a proud leader!!

Andy

On a personal note big thanks should go to Chairman Andy for all his time and hard work that he put in to make the race the success it was.

The Cross Country Race - Runcorn

Good evening all

Cross country 11/01/15 - two lone wolves made it from Birkenhead to
Runcorn,
Patrik Corrigan and Steve Saunders. Another good turnout generally,
which seems to have
been the case with each of the XC runs this season.
Although chilly and breezy the weather didn't have an adverse impact on
the
race. The ground was, in places, a lot wetter and muddier than 
expected but
made for an authentic XC run. And of course we had the beast that is
the
ski slope to deal with...twice!!  Next up in the series Beacon Park
still, in most opinions, the toughest race of the series, but
paradoxically, for me anyway, the most enjoyable, the heavy gang will
be back.

Positions Patrik 65th and Steve Saunders 137th.
