Next Cross country

Amsterdam Marathon
 
Sheila Grant ran 3:42:12, knocking a minute off her PB but not changing her place on the "Any Other Marathon" list.  Michael ran 3:28, 3 minutes slower than his Rotterdam time.
 
Snowdonia Marathon
 
Bill Murphy ran 3:50:42 and Sara Dyer 4:21:10
 
This puts Bill 11th on the "Any Other Marathon" list and moves Sara up to 16th, overtaking Sheila Grant and Geoff Webster
 
Grand Prix Status
 
Just 4 races to go (Burley Bridge on 12th, Wakefield x/c on 19th, Abbey Dash on 27th, Guiseley x/c on Dec 4th)
 
In group A, Drew has 798 points and Brian 699.  This means that if they each win 2 of the last 4 races they would both finish with a perfect 800.  Drew is well clear in the M40 category.
 
In group B, Simon and Bob both have 775.  Bob is well clear in the M50 category
 
Group C and D have clear leaders in Eric Green and Bob Wilkes.
 
In group E, Peter Stevenson leads from Sheila Grant but Sheila has a race in hand.  John Bucktrout, Emma Jenkins and Sara Dyer are also in with a chance.
 
In the Wimin's section, Jules has 752 from 8 races, only Sam (470 from 5) can catch her.  In the Wimin Vets, it should be one of Sheila 543 from 7, Sara 467 from 6, Mary 460 from 5, Sylvia 415 from 5 (Mivvy 553 from 7 does not qualify as she turned 35 this year)
