HARDY representatives from Tring Running Club battled through the mud in Wing, recording some good results along the way.

The conditions were extremely testing on the course at the Chiltern League Cross Country fixture, but that did not stop Tring’s Mary Ward from posting a top-ten finish in the senior/veteran ladies’ race.

Mary came home in seventh place, and she was followed by Alison Harding in 12th, Eli Tweed in 14th, Kirsty Barnett in 17th, Rachel Lark in 24th, Ruth Rutt in 27th, Jane Porteous in 29th, Alice Ely in 30th, Maria Cook in 32nd and Carol Macdonald in 34th.

And Tring’s Ross Langley equalled Mary’s efforts as he also recorded a seventh-placed finish, in the senior/junior/veteran men’s race.

Greg O’Callaghan was the next finisher for the Tring side in 10th position, and he led home Nigel Bunn in 14th, Kevin Harding in 18th, Mark Hadaway in 22nd, Michael Burgess in 26th, Simon Barnett in 38th, Trevor Lark in 45th, Clive Cohen in 51st, John Manning in 53rd, Rob Brown in 59th, Jonathan Smith in 68th, David Sawyer in 81st, Brian Layton in 89th and Richard White in 95th.
