Runners of the Day – Markfield XC

Well done to all who took part in the Markfield Cross Country. Having so many runners has made the selection of Runners of the Day for Andrea and me very difficult.

Many of those for whom it was their first time, I hope you enjoyed it, keep coming and tell everyone else; the more the merrier

For the men Kevin Higham gets runner of the day with another strong performance, well done keep it up (work permitting!).

There were many other impressive performances with George Birt 8th, Ben Harding 9th and Matthew Johnson 30th.

For the ladies, making her senior debut, Bethan Padbury is runner of the day. Beth was first lady back for Hinckley. She had a great race with a very good place, 15th,  and time

Katy Grainger, 31st, continues to improve and was 2nd lady for Hinckley. Kate Perkins continues to do really well too; the bump isn’t holding her back yet, looking good for her post baby personal bests.

Once again well done to Kevin Higham and Beth Padbury and thank you all who took part.

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.

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 […]
