There’s been a lot of XC posts recently, so this one is an attempt to summarise the latest news and give you a timetable and links for upcoming events (all in the calendar in the sidebar too).
North Mids XC match at Shipley Country Park
Well done to everyone that took part at North Mids XC match at Shipley Country Park last Saturday! The course was more than a little muddy, so hard going for all the runners.
Tom Broadley achieved 7th place in the U11 boys, while Will Tucker and George Hatton came 40th and 79th in the Men’s event (8th and 16th in the U20 group) respectively, while Harry Denton came in 17th place in the U15 Boys.
Lincolnshire Runner Cross Country League
Match 4 of the Lincolnshire Runner Cross Country League has had to be postponed until next year. More details will be posted as and when we have them.
