Booths Cross Country League

Another good turnout for the cross country race at Chaddesden Park,  a fairly flat, mostly grass course but with the dreaded (for some) double stream crossings on each of the 2 laps of 2.2 miles.  Ian Monaghan was our top man and was 2nd v40 with Debbie Lock our top woman and 1st v40.  The men finished 11th and the women 4th.


Thanks to everyone for running with special thanks to Ian Carty for the post race disc collating.  Download results below.

Well done to our men on Saturday at Mansfield for the National Cross Country Relays.

Chris Adams was our quickest runner completing his 5k leg in 17:46 on what was a very dry Berry Hill Park.
