Strider Kelly Hamilton wore purple this weekend as she travelled to Prestwold Hall, Loughborough to represent Merseyside in the Inter Counties Cross Country Championships.
One of eight Merseyside athletes chosen to represent the county, Kelly embraced the mud bath one last time in the last cross country race of the season.
Kelly said “The Merseyside senior women’s team finished 20th. I was the 6th counter for the team. It was 5.3 miles of torture!”
Meanwhile, Strider Eric Ranson took part in the Irwell Valley 20 Mile Race in Prestwich, Manchester as part of a test run before his second marathon of the year in April. Eric completed the 20 mile trail race in 2:44:14 and came 9th in his age category.
