Why Kate will never forget her trip to Brussels

REPRESENTING England KATE Hulls finished a creditable 13th in the IRIS Lotto Cross Cup event in Brussels at the weekend.

“It was four laps of 1.5k with man-made barriers to jump and it was so fast,” said Hulls.

KateHulls2015BThe pace was just relentless and unfortunately I wasn’t good over the barriers. I jumped them like a pony rather than hurdle them and I lost ground every time we reached one.

It was an amazing hotel . . . a nice treat

“It was a really tough event but I enjoyed the trip especially as Eurostar put me up in the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel on Sunday night as they were delayed in getting back into London and I missed my connection to Gloucester.

“It is an amazing hotel and the breakfast was unbelievable. It was a nice treat.”

Bristol & West club Dan Studley was 20th in the senior men’s race.
