British & Irish Masters International.

10/11/2012

On Saturday 10th November, 3 DRC ladies competed in the Masters International XC in Belfast. Lisa and Sian Finlay were running for NI while Jo Zakrzewski was representing Scotland...

The venue was changed from Stormont to Queens University Fields due to waterlogging, and the course was reputed to be "fast and flat". The first race was for ladies of all age groups and the >65 men (165 runners in total) and consisted of 3 laps of 2000m.

The day was rather cold but luckily the rain had stopped by the time the start was called. Soon after the start of each lap was a steep muddy slope which caught many runners unawares, soon followed by a deep boggy section which made runners worry about losing shoes. After that was some fairly quick running, before the DRC girls could use the next slope to gain places. Another very boggy rough section took them back round to the start/ finish.

The race was won by reigning champion Claire Martin of England in 21:21 with the first Scot home being Fiona Matheson in 5th place overall, retaining her v50 title. Jo surprised herself with a good strong run to finish as 2nd Scot and 9th overall in 22:29. Lisa had been training hard for her approaching marathon but helped her team gain bronze medals, finishing in 24:09 for 39th place. Sian hadn't been confident of recovering from her calf injury in time for the race, but brought it home for 113th in 27:07.

The day was rounded off with a dinner, a dance and the prizegiving, leaving people to look forward to next year when the competition moves to Wales.
