Sunday 19th of January saw the KADS at the BDL Cross Country race at Bramcote Park.
I would like to thank the 26 runners who took part. Well done to Ryan on his debut for the club, and also a special mention for Alan, Glen, Rob G, Dan G, Dave S and Ash who joined us having been injured over the last year.
All KADS put in a brilliant performance with Bruce Raeside being our first finisher in a fantastic second place. The scores on the doors - Men = 552, 10th place and the Ladies = 576, 6th place. Combined KADS = 1128, 8th place.
I'd like to thank Steve Robinson-Day and Glen Weston for sorting transport and Nick and Helen for bringing the tent and sorting the race admin. Also a big thank you to the support from friends and family on the sidelines. When a voice shouts 'Come on KADS', it kept me going.
On Sunday 16th February we tackle 5th and final BDL race in the cross country season. So far we have had 16 ladies and 26 men take part in the series. Thanks to everybody for running, there have been some brilliant performances. Let's get as many KADS as we can out for the final race.
One very happy Skip. Thank you all.
Kimberley and District Striders got the New Year off to a flying start at the Nottinghamshire County Cross Country Championship on the 4th January.
On a tough and very muddy course around Shipley Country Park the men's senior team finished 6th, while the ladies senior teams (pictured above at the start) finished 4th and 10th. A special mention also goes to KADS member Bruce Raeside who, running for his first club team of Notts AC, came 3rd overall and won his age category. Congratulations to everyone who took part.
HAPPY NEW YEAR KADS!
