UKA Gloucester 10mile road race
Also on Sunday the 30th of December, Kirsteen Welch (seen here at the SW X-Country Championships) took part in the UKA Gloucester 10mile road race. There were lots of talented athletes there, so it was a tough competition to take part in.
Kirsteen ran very well and was having a good race in-spite of being sent the wrong way with the front runners by a race marshal! This was frustrating for Kirsteen, however with typical KW determination, she still managed to cross the line to claim the 3rd Lady, 1st for her age group and 23rd out of 408 runners. Her time was 1h:07m:42s, still a great result even with the misdirection adding an extra 0.65 miles.
The next and first challenge of 2019, is to represent Devon this coming Sunday in the Southwest XC Championships with the aim of being selected for the National XC Championships in Loughborough in February.
