The results for our first event can be found here: Results
It’s been a great season of cross country, lots more people taking part and I’d like to say a massive thanks to everyone that came along and ran any of the events, I hope you enjoyed it (?) and will be back for more next season.
As well as enjoying the mud , which to be fair was a bit disappointing this year and a bit of cake we had some great results all round.
The team finishing places are:
- Senior Ladies 1st in Div three & will be promoted for next season
- B team 12th
- Vet ladies 5th in Div two – were only promoted to this div this season, so a great result!
- B team 11th
- Senior Men 3rd in Div three & will be promoted for next season
- Vet men 3rd in Div three
- B team 14th
On top of this we had some amazing overall finishing positions in the age groups, where athletes have completed 4 out of the 5 runs.
There is a presentation evening on 1st March at Wilmslow Rugby Club, if anyone would like to go along it’s £6 per person and you’ll need to contact Brenda for tickets at email@example.com tickets must be requested by midnight on 25th Feb.
We start all over again in October, let me know if you are interested in playing out with us. There are five events across five months Oct – Feb, it would be great to get even more people in the teams and flying the STC flag.
Need a bit of an incentive to keep up your swimming through the winter months? How about taking on the Winter Swimming Challenge! Starting from next week the intention is to clock up some extra winter miles in the pool.
The challenge is to swim 40km from 1 December 2015 to 29 February 2016. All strokes count as do all swimming drills scull / doggy paddle / catch up etc. Sinking down to the bottom of the pool doesn’t! This works out at 3km per week for 13 weeks plus one km and should help to shorten the winter for those participating.
Thanks to Dave Colley for suggesting the idea and coming up with the this spreadsheet Winter Swimming Challenge that everyone can download to chart their progress.
If anyone is interested in creating a league to track your progress against other Stockport Tri members please let us know via our facebook page!
Thanks to all competitors and marshals for making this another enjoyable event.
