Senior Ladies Create History

February 27th, 2014 by Stella

On Saturday the Ladies travelled to Nottingham for the National XC Championships to complete their mission to compete in the Kent Championships XC, Southern Championships XC and the Nationals. After only deciding to do all three races in December and get themselves fit for the three races. It was always going to be a tough mission, overcoming breaks to have children, run marathons, and career changes, a far cry from the Bronze Team Medals Becky Weller and Janine Brown won in the U20 National Championship 13 Years ago to go with their Southern Team Medals. Still our ladies did not disappoint. Janine Brown made the difficult decision to withdraw from the team after the Southern XC because of injury but travelled to Nottingham as Team Manager and support the Yellow and black Army, it was left to Candy Hawkins, Becky Weller & Amanda Jukes to lead the team after a last minute drop out from the team, this meant they would not count in the team standings because it was 4 to count. However not to be deterred the girls gave 110%, Candy Led the girls in 389th followed closely by Amanda in 408th and Becky rounding out the team 554th. Well done ladies. Mission Accomplished :))
