BD Cross Country League
Holmebrook Valley Park S41 8XP
Great showing for the final cross country race with 33 turning out for NDRC on what was a cold morning and although the rain held off the course still provided plenty of mud for the real cross country folk.
Martin Dawson was our leading man followed by Nick Baker who has recently returned to running after a long layoff. Tim Clayton also made the top 20 and our men's team finished a fantastic 2nd. Whilst we had 28 men running we only had 5 ladies but what they lacked in numbers they made up for in quality with Rachel Burton, Hannah Barnett and Sarah Witham our top three counters bringing home the ladies team in 3rd place. Individual honours went to Matt Dawson & Nick Baker 1st & 2nd v40, Tim Clayton & Richard Corker 1st & 2nd v55, Rachel Burton 1st v45 and Sue Spencer 3rd v55.
The final table after the 5 race series leaves our men in 7th and our ladies in 4th. We finished with 4 trophy winners - Tim Clayton 1st v55, Hannah Barnett 2nd senior lady, Rachel Burton 2nd v45 and Maggie Gorman 1st v60. John Gorman finished 2nd v65 but alas there is only one trophy for v65 category.

TRAINING AT QUEEN'S PARK
Club Secretary Sarah Johnson has been asked to attend a meeting with the Manager of Queens Park Sports Centre to discuss the issue of parking at the centre. Like NDRC, they also have an influx of new members attending and car parking is a real issue. Therefore wherever possible can members please to use the 2 car parks on Boythorpe Road (the ones that belonged to the old sports centre). They are free to use after 6pm (or after 3pm with a CBC Residents Parking Pass).
Thank you for your co-operation
