Saturday 9th January 2016
First, there was a lone tent and a flag….
Next came the runners, supporters and the mud (of course)! This year the County Cross Country Championships were in our own back yard at Burbage Common. So great to see so many Hinckley runners and supporters. Big thanks to all.
Both the ladies and the men’s team just missed out on a podium position and finished 4th. Team Results here.
Bethan Padbury ran in the U17 race and came 7th. Kate Perkins finished 8th in the Senior Ladies. Both had papers for the county team, well done. Full individual results can be found here. More details at www.lraa.org.uk
