What a fantastic turnout of MACs – 20 men and 12 ladies - in very challenging conditions on Sunday at the 5th and final race in the BDL XC- 5.1 miles over 2 laps at Holmebrook Valley Park, Chesterfield.
The winner and 1st Junior Male was Sam Moakes of Sutton-in-Ashfield Harriers & AC with MACs Dan Haworth coming home in 2nd place. An amazing run considering he claimed 3rd place the day before in the challenging Half Tour of Bradwell Fell Race (25k/970m). In the Ladies’ race MAC’s Jade Stone had a great run to take first place.
Other MACs taking part in the Men’s race - Mike Blair, Colin Davenport, Paddy Wright, John Thorpe, Carl Dyke, Richard Bradbury, Ricky Wood, Karl Webster, Bob Foreman, James Fox, Geoff Cooper, Andy Mellor, Dan Ashcroft, Gavin Simmons, Antony Lester, Jack Cummins, Mick Kuszinski, Steve Goodall and Mark Jackson. For the Ladies – Lizzie Webster, Joanne Grant, Michaela Dick, Alison Pye, Nicky Dick, Kathryn Berrisford, Jan Forrester, Molly Gorman, Jude Goodall, Sally Owen and Jakki Simmons. Unfortunately, Elsbeth Grant and Mick Moorhouse DNF.
The MAC Ladies’ Team have done enough to claim the Team prize again from the 12 local teams taking part in the league. At time of writing the results are outstanding therefore the final series standings cannot be finalised in the Men's Team position and the Combined Standings and we are hoping for some wins and places in the individual age categories.
