Midland cross country relays, Uttoxeter, Sat 17th October 2015 Print

ImageA new venue for the opening of the cross country season. Well done to débutantes Daniel and Jane.

A word from the ladies captain :

The eagerly awaited start of the X Country season didn't disappoint for the ladies team.  It was great to see some familiar faces in the Sparkhill vest and also some new additions to the team.  A promising start to the season on an interesting course (thanks to the water crossings!).  All are looking forward to the next challenge, where we hope to have a strong ladies contingent.

Well, what a mud-fest that was. Probably the most energy sapping course we have seen in many a year.

As usual, Sparkhill managed a great turnout for this end of season slip and slide. What Paul MacCabe was thinking in making this his cross country début is open to question.

Congratulation all.

Birmingham XC League, race#4, Wyken Croft Park, Coventry, Sat 7th February 2015 Print

ImageLast league race of the season and fine conditions greeted the athletes at our hosts Sphinx AC. The course was unusually firm and fast. As has been the way this season we were again dogged by illnesses and injuries. A quick check of the season's previous fixtures showed we were missing 5 previous scorers in Darren, Nick, Stuart, James and Rob. On a positive note it gave others a chance to shine and it was good to see Simon figure in the scoring 6 for the first time.
