Emily Gelder led the team home in 19th place and 4th vet in an excellent time of 21:39. Rose Baker who represented Great Britain in a marathon in Manchester only last Sunday and who had (of course) also done the Bexley parkrun only that morning was the second team member back. She had got boxed in at the start and initially found it hard to get past people but was soon zooming past those who had set off at a pace they couldn’t sustain. Nevertheless it meant that she couldn’t catch the lead groups. Sue Dixon made up the team of three. Christine Bond, Marian Hine and Sally Carr completed the team of six. It was a great run from Marian-her first cross country for seven years (we think). Good runs too from Donna Martin who was seconds behind Sally and Kate Mitchell who was turning out for us the first time over the country. Susan Edwards, Angela Ford, Maria Macdonald, Carly Martin and U20 Shelley Clarke made up the rest of the squad.
