National Cross Country Championships


Saturday 21 February 2015


Well done to our runners in the National Cross Country Championships at Parliament Hill, London on Saturday.  John Sanderson is still finding his feet with cross country but finished 844 out of 2005 runners completing the 12km course in 52:58.  Club Captain Steve Bennett just missed the hour in 1:00:47 and Stuart Cunningham ran 1:25:29.

Commiserations to Paul Sorrell who had a strong run finishing ahead of arch nemesis Dean Taylor of Ripley but unfortunately Paul lost his chip somewhere on the course so was not included in the results. He is suitably gutted but for the record Dean finished in 51:13 for 668th place so we know Paul was quicker than that and therefore our unofficial top runner on the day.  Thanks to all for representing the club.
