It was a new years return to XC action at a very muddy and slippery Denbies vineyard. Given the congested calendar some teams were missing some key runners however all groups got out and represented GGAC.
An incredible haul of 3 individual medals and 2 team medals, including 2 county champions! As well as some great individual performances given the hard conditions, all runners have improved in ability and confidence.
