All 11 of our athletes were in and packed really strongly in a large field of 280 finishers. Individually Jordan was 2nd and Jacob 3rd U/20, and our A team finished 3rd scoring 125 points, our B team finished 4th with 619 points. Well done to all our Men who competed, a good start to the Birmingham League Season and hopefully even more of our U/20, Senior and Masters Men will compete over the remaining three free races so that we can achieve promotion and get the best position possible.  Thank you also goes to Tonia Vernon who acted as our race official and saved the club from a 200 point penalty.
