RESULTS Derby Runner XC League – Race 1 – Bagworth Heath – 22nd October 2017
Seniors ResultsTeam Tables – Juniors Results

The ladies team did particularly well finishing 2nd out of 25 teams, the men came a respectable 11th (7th in div 1) and combined team 9th (6th in div 1). I am also told the cakes Jenny and Kirsty brought were very good, and that our new hot drink facility provided welcome fortification against the high winds.

We have raised a query about the league tables as Hinckley ladies team are showing in division two despite winning the division last season. (Edit: Confirmed Edit 2: final tables now updated above) We also understand the juniors results may currently be incomplete due to some problems with duplicated/missing numbers.

The next XC league race is at Prestwold Hall on Sun 12th November – details to follow when available.

Conditioning & Injury Prevention Session

Rebecca will be doing another conditioning/injury prevention session on Tuesday November 7th – this will be in the downstairs room of the Leisure Centre after the usual training session. It should start about 7:45 pm and will focus on hips and knees and the muscles in between, with some drills too.

In honour of the Derby Runner cross country season starting this weekend, and with it being the club’s 30th anniversary — here’s a look back to how cross country was done 23 years ago. Apart from the hairstyles, not much has changed really. Scan provided by Penny Masser.
