It was real Great British cross country weather on Saturday, grey and wet. That didn’t stop 11 hardy BRAT ladies heading to Leamington for the first Midland League race of the season. The course was as muddy as expected, and the hill particularly gruelling. BRAT had a tremendous set of results which has kicked us off with a 5th place senior team standing and 8th masters team, a brilliant start to the season. Great runs were had by all, and a massive thank you to Jenny Coxon for representing the club as the line judge – rather the responsibility! Fantastic day out for the BRAT Ladies once again. 



Molly Browne – 12th

Helena Eastham – 15th

Leonie Balter – 21st

Eloise Lee – 62nd 

Lisa Tindle – 69th 

Helen Pike – 76th 

Claire Keene – 94th 

Rachel Brown – 113th 

Louise Beasley – 126th 

Catherine McNicholl – 142nd


Thank you to everyone for running, next league race is the 3rdDecember in Stratford.

Ladies Midland Road Relays

The ladies had 3 teams competing at the Autumn Midland Road Relays in Sutton Park and the teams included several new additions. A brilliant day was had with all of the girls and there were great performances in all three teams.

The A team pulled out all the stops to come an incredible 3rd place. The team included Molly Browne, Jen Dale, Helena Eastham and Daisy Wilson, who all had exceptional runs to claim BRAT's first ever medal in this event.

The B team came 13th overall and 2nd B team. This team included Jenny Coxon, Eloise Lee (both recently returned from injuries), Becky Hair and Sheridan McWilliam in her first run for the club.

The C team came 36th overall. Considering there were 82 teams that finished, this is a huge achievement to have 3 teams finish in the top 36! The C team included Megan Thomas, also recently back from injury, and some new girls in their first relays, Tabby Rogers, Victoria Moulson and Molly Fowler.

It was great to see so many girls out running, and hopefully we'll see even more taking part in the Spring relays.
