LLISWERRY RUNNERS SHINE AT THE EAST WALES CROSS COUNTRY CHAMPIONSHIPS

In a change to previous years Llandaff Fields hosted the East Wales Cross Country Championships, with both Individual and Team medals up for grabs.  After days of heavy rain, the conditions underfoot were challenging and with both the Senior Mens and Ladies races stacked with talent, the competition for medals was tough.  Despite this, Lliswerry Ladies dominated with the following runners rewarded for some fantastic runs:

  • Emma Wookey: Individual Gold U23 & Team Gold Senior
  • Louise Howells: Individual Bronze V35 & Team Gold V35-44
  • Keri-Lyn Jones: Individual Silver V40 & Team Gold V35-44
  • Rebecca Rothwell: Individual Silver Senior & Team Senior Gold
  • Antoinette Dumayne: Individual Silver U23 & Team Senior Gold
  • Yvonne Forsey: Individual Bronze V55
  • Sandy Chipper: Team Gold V35-44
  • Sarah Lauder: Team Bronze V35-44
  • Marina Wright: Team Bronze V35-44
  • Gayle Sheppard: Team Bronze V35 -44

In the Mens Race, strong running across the age groups resulted in some medal winning performances:

  • Matthew Grantham: Individual Gold U20
  • Howard Attwood: Individual Gold V60

Best of luck to all our runners who are selected to represent East Wales at the Inter-Regional Championships in December!
