Lichfield West Midlands urban league

We had 7 members competing at a sunny and very warm Lichfield urban on Sunday, the town was packed with people for the markets which made even more obstacles !

On Ultra-vets Paul Graetz had a superb run in 5th place only 1:30 behind the leader.

'El Capitain' came 1st in mens open and had a near perfect run only wasting around 30 seconds in total. Also on course 1, Sam Naylor got round in 61:35 for 12th place.

Andrew Rowe had been staying with friends nearby for the weekend and decided to call in on his way back to London, he came 12th on course 2 in 47:09.

In mens super-vet class 4.6k, Jim Cooke was 19th 38:20 and Gerry Riley 25th in 43:03. Our only woman taking part was Dora Deaville in ultra-vets, she was 7th in 47:33
