Well we tried but Bury put in 100 runners which was too much for us. We had 78. In the Semi-final we logged 84 times – Bury 68 But Bury increased their starter list to 118 and had a great turnout . Final score:
Wilmslow RC 7166 : 8781 Bury AC
But you can feel good about our runners. We did have 11 out of 16 Cat firsts. Well done to Peter, Rob, Andrew, Diane, Louisa, Tracy, Paul, Tom, Janine, Mick, and Nicky. We lost out on M11-15, M16-39, M45-49 and F16-39.
We also had 9 of 15 seconds in the category rankings: Richard, Barry, Tim, Graham, Nicola, Andy Diane, Angela and Don. So it was a great performance put in by our runners.
Undoubtedly it was numbers that counted against us. That and in the main two categories 16-39 year olds; Bury had 59 to our 11 men ; and 21 to our 10 ladies.
So be proud. If we had a full turnout, we would have pushed them. But congratulations to their team and their performance.
