Midland XC Championships, Prestwold Hall, Loughborough, Sat 30th January 2016 Print

ImageTough course, very soft underfoot with some gusty wind in places made for a fun day out at Prestwold Hall. A number of the usual faces were missing but all those who ran acquitted themselves really well over the course which, as is usual, was longer than the league ones we are used to.

A word of thanks and congratulations to MCAA for managing to stage the event at the new venue after Stafford Common was waterlogged.

Midland Womens Cross Country league - race 3, Gloucester, Sat 16th January 2016 Print

ImageIt was great to see that even with several of this season's regulars missing, there is currently the strength & depth at the Club to still record a full team in this third league race of the season held at Crypt School in Gloucester.  A smaller yet steadfast team braved the cold to take on the largely flat yet slippery and sticky course.

Unfortunately we didn't have enough Masters running to register a team this week, but the combined team finished 26th in the overall position.

Birmingham XC League, race#3, Droitwich Spa, Sat 16th January 2016 Print
ImageSome words of encouragement from Craig >

Another really positive race on Saturday.  The weather was kind but quite understandably the course got sticky as the race wore on.  I understand the descent through the wood was difficult.

It was a really great turnout with 21 runners finishing which was 11% of the field (186 runners).  We should be proud of this.

We counted 6 in 36 scoring 141 with Stuart and Paul improving on previous races and Andy having a fantastic run finishing just behind Darren.  Jonny ran really well and is now 6th best runner, so far, in the league this season.  Nick is starting to worry that after many years as a counter his days might be numbered.

The next 6 counters ranged from 52 to 87 which meant that once again the 'B' team outscored a good percentage of the 'A' teams for some clubs.  Daniel was first in finishing 52nd and is now the 3rd ranked junior in the league - well done Daniel.  A special mention to Eddie who also ran as a junior finishing 67th in his first league race.  It is a long time since we had 2 junior finishers.

Our 18th runner finished in 140th and this meant that our total from the 13th to the 18th runner was better than some 'A' teams.  This is showing that we have real strength in depth.  I am pondering over the possibility that Rob and Graham were holding hands when they crossed the line.  If so, please note that that sort of behaviour is best kept for fun runs.

Being part of a team is all about supporting each other and it is important for us all to note that Kevin, Mark and Mick ran well and contributed to the positive team spirit.  It is important that we have runners backing up in case of mishaps.

Again we had good away support with Dave, Bob, Martin, Gill, Paul, Bernard and Gavin cheering us on.  Big thanks to Gavin for standing at the finish to collect the tokens.  Graham was also there in his officiating capacity.

One last big effort required for Gloucester.  You never know, we might nick 2nd place in the league.
