WAC women retain Div 1 status Ė 22 November 2015

Steve Wyatt reports from Boscombe 10k at Kings Park

We concluded the Road Runners league with a 10k jog around the Kings Park area on Sunday morning.  The running itself was almost secondary to the frantic negotiations around eligibility and our attempts to move numbers from males to females and improve our female team score.  Thank you to everyone involved who made it happen Ė it was certainly worth it as our female team came storming home in 3rd place overall.  Our aim was simply to beat Egdon Heath by two team places and we did that in style.

Across to the menís race and despite a depletion in numbers, we still managed a finishing team of five in 11th place.  This was all part of the plan as we knew we had secured league 1 status after The Gilly hilly.  This was a club championship race though and there were some points to be had!

That concludes the league season with both our teams finishing in 6th place in Div 1.  Bournemouth AC won both Menís and Womenís leagues.

In the menís, Purbeck Runners are relegated to Div2 and Egdon Heath are promoted.

In the ladies, Egdon Heath are relegated to Div 2, with Purbeck runners promoted.
