Sarah Dunn (W40 & W40 Sprint)
Joe Wright, Jake and Alistair Chapman (Class M Relay).
There were many other quality results. Some photos are in the MAROC 2012 photo gallery.
Great Results for Maroc Juniors
As a junior rep I thought I would take the chance to highlight some of the clubs good results over the past few weekends. This is always a busy time, and with many big races, the main one ofcourse being the Jk where Maroc juniors turned out in full force. The first day was a sprint in Livingston, where we dominated the M12 category, with Jake Chapman 2nd, Alistair Chapman 8th, and John Getliff 10th. We also had good results in W14, and 16 with both Abi Mason, and Jenny Rickets coming 5th.
The next day there were even more good results, so it seems we perform better in the tough technical terrain which was day 2. In M10A Grant McMurtrie came 5th, and Matthew Gooch came 8th. In M10B Ewan Musgrave came 1st. Then In M12A Jake Chapman got 1st. In M14A Ross McMurtrie cam 10th, then in the girls Abi Mason came 5th in W14A, with Megan Rickets in 10th.
Day Three was even tougher, and again more technical. this meant the people who are truly good at technical shone through, and it seems we have lots in that category. In M10A Matthew Gooch came 9th, but was beaten by Grant McMurtrie who came 5th. Ewan Musgrave again won M10B, whilst the boys in M12A dominated again, with Jake Chapman first, Joe Wright 2nd, Alistair Chapman 5th, and John Getliff 10th. Ross McMurtrie came 5th in M14A a good result in a tough category, as it gets harder to stay at the the top as you go up the ages. Josh Dudley came 8th in M18 elite which is a brilliant result. Then in the girls Abi came 5th in W14A great consistency, a key feature of good athletes. Finally Evie Mason got a great 8th in the very tough W16A category, she was also 5th Brit which is very good.
This of course led to many good overall results which were taken from day two and three. Ewan Musgrave secured 1st in M10B, whilst Grant Mcmurtrie got 5th In M10A with Matthew Gooch not far behind in 8th. Jake Chapman was another JK title holder, as he secured first in M12A, with Alistair receiving 8th, so a good weekend for the Chapman family. In M14A Ross got 8th, another good result. Josh also got 8th, but in M18 elite. Abi got an overall 6th in W14A. All in all it seems we like the numbers 5 and 8 but at such a big competition these are good numbers to have beside your name.
In the relay we had two teams which shone through, the team of Joe Wright, and both Chapmans, Alistair, and Jake won their category, whilst Frances Wright, and both Mason, Evie and Abi came 4th in theirs. Thank you to everyone who helped with parking especially the Getliffs, as they didn't get a run.
I know Trevor previously sent out an e-mail mentioning the British Sprints and Middles but I felt he left out a few good results. These include Abi Mason 6th In the W14 A final, and Evie Mason 9th in the W16 A final. Abi carried her success into the middles where she came 4th.
Let me know If i have missed anyone out I have tried my best but am tired after the long weekend.
The next things coming up are SOL 2, and Wednesday night training, so we can all get ready for the British Long where I am sure we will have great results as usual.
Hope everyone had a great Easter
