Report by Andy Carter:
"Saturday was another superb day for Vale Royal, we were undoubtedly the top club in Cheshire, again, and I think that it is fair to say that overall this was our best performance ever in the County Championships - certainly on a par with 2014 but with an even better medal haul.
I seem to keep saying that we have exceeded expectations but it is true - you all keep putting in top performances and improving both individually and as teams, which is absolutely great - it certainly puts us in good spirits for the Northern's and Nationals' which will be here very soon!
The course looked to be better than I expected, the first field was quite firm and although the others were pretty wet this was offset by the fact that most races were shorter than advertised - but tough conditions is what Cross Country is all about! But of course, I did not race so some of you might not agree with those comments!
It is difficult to pick out individual performances when there were so many, suffice to say in the 12 races we took 6 individual golds, 7 silver and 3 bronze together with 7 team golds, 5 silver and 2 bronze.
If we include Vet categories then we got a further 4 individual golds, a team gold and team silver - I think!!"
