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.
