WHAT a terrific weekend it was for Chelsea Creak.
On Saturday the Bristol & West AC runner claimed her first ever win in the Gwent Cross Country League at Blaise Castle, improving on the third and second places she enjoyed at Brecon and Pembury before Christmas.
It means Creak now leads the overall women’s individual standings by 127 points from Chepstow Harriers’ Kath Matthews with another B&W runner, Hannah Dyer, currently third on 1060 points.
So, one more big performance at the fifth and final match at Singleton Park, Swansea, on Saturday March 19th should see Creak lift the title.
Then barely 24 hours after her success at Blaise Castle Creak headed over the Bristol Channel for the final race in the South Wales Winter Hill Series, the Pen Tir Drop.
Creak won that as well and on top of three previous wins and a second place was crowned overall women’s champion.
Creak’s Bristol & West AC team manager Chris Elson has already described her form this winter as a ‘revelation’ and it is hard not to agree with that judgement.
