TIM Iveson maintained his 100 per cent record in the Herefordshire Cross Country League with victory at Fforest Fields.

The Builth Wells runner recorded his fourth win of the championship with Ludlow’s Amy Fulford winning the women’s race.

Iveson had the company of two of his team mates. Maldwyn Harriers’ Joseph Murray and Croft Ambrey’s Mark Lamonby for the majority of the first lap as the runners tested out the safest way to negotiate the tricky underfoot conditions.

However as the race progressed Iveson injected more pace into his stride and broke the opposition to win by 14 seconds from Murray with Builth’s former league champion Jonny Pugh a distant third.

Builth Running Club finished their four counting team runners in the first 14 places to register a comprehensive victory and with just one race remaining in the series the South Powys club now hold a significant 43 points lead over reigning champions Maldwyn Harriers.

Fulford, running in her first race of the series, started conservatively but soon stormed past her rivals to eventually take victory by over a minute from Ledbury Harriers’ Holly Gourley with Ludlow’s Alice Godding overtaking Rhayader Jo Rees in a hazardous sprint finish.

Meanwhile Hay Hotfooters’ women’s team.celebrated their first ever team victor and led home by Bethan Logan in fifth place with Sarah Christensen in seventh and a best ever eighth place from Aderyn Carter earning their side a 12 point victory over Croft Ambrey.

The final race in the series will be held at Presteigne on Sunday, February 24.
