YKH Round Up w.e 5th March – Medals won @ Yorkshire Vet’s XC Champs & more..

—Yorkshire Vets Cross Country Championships.

Loads of medals won at the YVAA XC at Doncaster on Saturday. 18 Harriers pitted themselves against a great, fast cross-country course at the Northern Racing College in Rossington. It was an interesting course with a variety of terrain – fast, flat downhill, twisting woodland paths, a short, grassy climb and a stream crossing. It wouldn’t be cross-country without some mud, but this was largely limited to the start/finish straight and the going was good to firm on the rest of the course.
