Northern Cross Country Championships
Saturday 24 January 2015
Well done to everyone in the Northern Cross Country Championships at Pontefract Race Course on Saturday. Favourable weather provided perfect cross country conditions and we had an outstanding result this year finishing 21st out of 58 teams with 6 runners in the first half of the field. Martin Dawson was our top
runner in 173rd place from 697 finishers and Paul Sorrell was just outside the top 200 finishing 205th. Other finishers were Tim Clayton, Michael Geoghegan,
Russ White, John Sanderson, Adam Darnell, Steve Bennett and Stuart Cunningham. Thanks to everyone for representing the club.

The final race is at Holmebrook Valley Park on Sunday 8th February and we are hosting so we will need plenty of helpers.
With 2 weeks to go we haven't got many volunteers. If you are not running and can spare a couple of hours then please let Mike Bravin know. You can email him at email@example.com or telephone 233019.

Hope everyone enjoyed the race.
Dry but cold with a biting wind, especially in the second half of the course, but that didn't stop Race winner Richard Weir of Derby AC posting 31:25 to follow up last months win at the Heanor 10k. The chip timing equipment didn't register as Richard crossed the finish line but eager chip timing marshals picked up that he was wearing his chip around his wrist and registered his time manually. A lesson there for all runners where chip timing is used. Lincoln Wellington then dominated the next 3 positions with Shane Robinson 32:16, Ronny Wilson 32:25 and Joe Wilk 33:37.
In the women's race Charnwood's Emily Whitmore was a clear winner in 36:32 ahead of Katja Eravisto of Sleaford Town in 38:05, also first female over 35. Veteran Huncote Harrier Nicki Nealon was third in 38:09 but was awarded the first over 45 prize.
Chris Adams was NDRC top man just sneaking into the top 10 with 34:56, Ian Monaghan ran 36:54 to take second vet 40 with Adam Darnell 38:57 and John Sanderson 39:23 also breaking 40 minutes. John Murray 48:16, Naomi Swain 51:05, Darren Toyn 54:37 and Bridget Bates 70:34 all set new PB times but special mention must go to Angela Barnston who ran 55:15, a PB, but she was also on the commemorative race t-shirt!
Thanks to everyone who ran, the many marshals and helpers around the course who, without them, we couldn't put on the event and thanks also to our sponsors The Derby Runner and Tesco. Hopefully see many of you again in 2015.
