Ladies 7th at Northern XC Championships

The first club run of the year was the Northern XC Championships and we had a good turnout with 28 Harriers heading to Pontefract. The course was a lot muddier than three years ago which made for tough going.

The Ladies team was once again the star performers taking 7th place in the team competition, our best ever Ladies result at a Northerns. First back was Nik Vogan in 58th with the rest of the team comprising Andrea Lancaster, Anwen Darlington and Cassie Holmes. Also running were Sarah Attwood, Katy Godfrey, Liz Matthews and Maureen Medlar.

The Men’s team improved on the last couple of years by finishing 18th, led home by the returning Josh Beech who was backed up by Chris Roberts, Simon Collins, Alex Bedingham, Neil Stabbs and Barry Atkinson.

In the Men’s junior race Rob Judson was an impressive 43rd in a strong field.

The final XC race of the season is the big one, the Nationals at Parliment Hill, London on Saturday the 21st February.
