2020 is kicking off, Race Report Fans! And - whilst it is a painfully British thing to say - who isn't relieved to finally have some cold, crisp, sunny weather?! I hope that all those who weren't racing this weekend enjoyed some time out of doors soaking up the Vitamin D.
Chiltern Harriers had a great day at Keysoe in the fourth, and penultimate, match of the cross country league season.
On soft courses that got increasingly muddy as the day went on, the senior women and juniors scored great points to move up their respective divisions. The club were fourth on the day and retain third place overall with one match remaining. The match acted as Chiltern Harriers club championships for the juniors, so there was added spice to some of the contests.
Good Evening, Race report Fans, and welcome to what feels like the first 'meaty' Race Report of 2020 with results from Cliveden, Country to Capital and Cebu (and Race Report HQ merrily rocking out to some slightly dubious Indy classics from the noughties).
There was a good deal of success for Chiltern Harriers at the Buckinghamshire Cross Country Championships at Shuttleworth on Saturday. There were five team wins and four individual wins, and several athletes booked their places in the Buckinghamshire teams at the National Inter Counties in March.
The weather was kind with clear skies and reasonable temperatures. The underfoot conditions were surprisingly firm given the recent heavy rain.
A small band of seven Chiltern Harriers braved grey and muddy conditions at Fairlands Valley Park in Stevenage on Sunday to contest the Herts Cross Country Championships.
Happy New Year, Race Report fans! May 2020 bring you happiness, health and running success (in that order).
It's actually quite a quiet one to kick the year off. A number of Harriers were competing in county cross country championships over the weekend (Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire). Report to follow by Steve Perkin. There was also a great turnout for last week's Pednor 10 by Arctic 1. Results are available here.
