Herefordshire Summer XC league comes to a close at Westhope

Congratulations to all the runners who took part in the Westhope cross country race last night, It was another hot and stick encounter with another great show of red vests around the scenic Bulmer’s orchards north of Hereford as the Summer XC league season came to a close, the event went off without any hiccups and even the organised fly-by fitted in with proceeding!

A special mention to Michael Blenkinsop for organising another great series of races & thank-you to Ludlow Runners, Wye Valley Runners and Croft Ambrey for hosting the other races in the series.

We had a number of Couriers pick up category prizes in a number of different age groups, Congratulations to Croft Ambrey who picked up the overall team prize for the series.

A few Thank-you’s firstly to Bulmer’s (Heineken) for the use of the orchards, secondly to all the helpers who set-up the course and marshalled the event and finally to all the runners who turned out to race not just last night but the series as a whole. It was a big improvement on recent years numbers and you’ve all done the Couriers proud!

The Reds are back!

Roll on the winter league! 🙂
