Markfield XC 2014 – Results

Men-MarkfieldXC

Ladies-markfieldXC

Well done everyone who took part or supported. We had 22 men and 10 ladies finish.

As a team we came 4th in League 1 (Based on 7 men (including 2 vets) and 3 ladies (including 1 vet)).

Men came 4th in League 1 and Ladies came 3rd in League 2. A good start to the season all-round!

Many people who had done the same course in previous years improved their time and position. There were also plenty of people for whom it was there first XC for the club. Well done and please tell everyone else how much fun you had.

As our Chairman, John Padbury, mentioned at the AGM, racing can be a very good form of training. Many people are looking to either build up to a main race in the Spring, or just improve their fitness generally. For me I find XC a great strength workout and I think it is important to try and vary your training, so a bit of off road work for most should help.

With 21 men Ed and I had our work cut out to pick Runner of the day (ROD). We will aim to announce it Thursday.

Jon Strong – Men’s Captain

League positions

LRRL league after Joy Cann 5 – one more race to go in the summer league!

The less good news first… Mens’ teams have suffered a little bit this season. We seem to yo-yo between division 1 and division 2, so after being promoted last season it did seem like relegation would be quite likely this season. Unfortunately the vet men’s team are already set to be relegated, but let’s put in a great final performance, and come back fighting next season, ready to win division 2! The men could POSSIBLY stay in division 1 with a truly heroic performance at John Fraser 10 – it’s Wigston Phoenix and Roadhoggs that you need to aim to beat!

The very good news – ladies are already confirmed champions of division 2, after winning all but two of the races so far. Ladies B are currently two points clear at the top of division 3, which is amazing – let’s keep it up and have two champion ladies teams! Vet ladies are comfortable in division 1, assured of safety next season after consistently amazing performances all year.

The next and final league race of the season is John Fraser 10 mile on Sunday 7th September. Entry and information can be found here:
