THE ladies’ veterans team at Barnet and District Athletics Club led the way as the final meeting of the Start Fitness Metropolitan cross country League took place at Alexandra Palace on Saturday.
Faced with freezing conditions on a wet and hilly course, the team maintained their 100 per cent record throughout the season by romping to victory to be crowned overall champions in their category.
Jo Kent again led the ladies home in tenth, taking first place in the W50 competition by more than two minutes.
She was followed by new recruit Zoe Levins in 16th and Karen Murphy in 18th, who also took second place in the W45 event.
The men’s race saw Alex Lepretre produce an excellent display to secure his highest ever finish in the Metropolitan League as he came home tenth.
Adrian Mason was first home in the M50 category, while Ed Price took third in the M40 race.
