KFL Oxleas Wood – 23rd November 2014

If you were not at this race where were you ? A proper cross country race in monsoon conditions what was stay away for.

I am pleased to report 18 brave members(10 ladies 8 men) did turn out to race in some pretty horrendous conditions, which I must say at one point was a lot more than I thought would be running for PWAC.

Showing just why she was voted Road Runner of the Year by her fellow members Claire Day put in another impressive performance to win the ladies race by some distance finishing in 71st overhaul place.

Claire was ably supported once again by the ever improving Sarah Shepherd and Emma Holland.  Jane Drew at last got her first ever KFL race.

For the men Colin Tricker also impressed finishing in 5th place, keeping up his fight for a place in the top 3 at the end of the season.

James Ridger is getting back to fitness finishing strongly and it was nice to see Gareth Robb out for his first KFL race of the season who finished a very creditable 21st

Our other new comer to this seasons KFL was Steve Sutton who looked like he enjoyed himself, but you can’t always tell.

9 runners have now competed in every race so far this season so to those 6 ladies and 3 men I must say a very big THANK YOU.

The full results can be found on the http://kfl.canterburyharriers.org/xc_result.php?id=5861  web site.

PWAC finished on the day in 8th place in the combined race (oh for an over 50 male runner, Alan sort your holidays out in future please) with the ladies finishing in an excellent 1st place.

We are now  7th  in the combined team event with the ladies in a brilliant 2nd place

Sorry I will not be at the next race in Deal next Sunday 30th (40th wedding anniversary as some of you might have already heard)

Full race details to follow in the week.

Amanda Hansford and Keeley Hoad will be your Team Managers for the day, please please support them both.

There is a £2 charge to park at Fowlmead, Deal so may I  suggest car sharing is the order of the day with the correct money available on arrival will be a great help
