First competitive race for a while for Stephen Chew. After running round into what felt like gale force winds, he finished in 3rd place in a time of 34:39.
It was an amazing start to the cross country season with a record number of Barlickers turning out to represent their club and this included a ladies team.
Having gained promotion last year the men's A team have started the season in Division 3 and the ladies in Division 4.
A great run from Sarah Tipler saw her finish in 4th place overall and great supporting runs from Jennifer Hird and Rachel Lowther saw them finish 14th team overall, which must put them in contention for top places in their division.
As for the men, there were Barlick shirts all the way through the field, with five runners, led by Jimmy Craig, finishing in the top twenty. Along with Chris Smale who finished in 32nd position, this made Barlick the first team overall out of all divisions, with the B team finishing 9th overall. The vet's team were 7th overall.
This was indeed a very good start to the season.

Injury Impaired the training schedule for Michael Alexander, which explains why his time of 4:18:19 was slower than Edinburgh. However, he still managed to finish the race.
