More XC at Gwent League in Brecon

After a three week break from XC, Lliswerry descended (or should that be ascended?) en masse to the hills of Brecon, where the last Gwent League XC of 2014 was taking place. Around the fields of Brecon Leisure Centre in Penlan, the course was a moderatley flat affair, zig zagging around and about various fields, of course with the occasional steep slope thrown in!

The ladies team stormed the course, taking fourth place in their division, ensuring they maintain their place in 2nd in the league for the year. A lot of the ladies then stuck around to give fantastic support to the men, who took 5th place in their division, unfortunately dropping down from 2nd to 4th overall. But still, with 2015 around the corner, and two more XC events to go, there is everything to run for!

mens team!

Many thanks go out to all runners who ran the course. Photos are available on Facebook, from Paul Stillman's Flickr page, or San Domenico's Flickr Page. (Please give credit if you make use of these images).
