The Cardiff XChallenge took place last Saturday at Llandaff Fields, with big fields in the senior races, and increased numbers taking part in the younger age groups. Photo by Paul Stillman, shows Charlotte Arter leading the field going into the last lap. Jenny Nesbitt is just behind Charlotte. Jenny finished 2nd at end of race. Charlotte was a clear winner moving away from a quality field of senior women runners, and a good confidence boost for the rest of her XC season. Jenny Nesbitt also an excellent performance. Except for one section of mud, the course was in good condition. Cardiff ladies team must have won the team race, with great backup from, see below.
