22/02/2020 National XC Champs, Wollaton Park, Nottingham
Derek reports: Well done to the seventeen Hunts runners at Wollaton Park, Nottingham, today for the National XC championships. It was the wettest, muddiest National course since Herrington Park in 2013! Tough going with a few logs to hurdle for good measure.
Our best placed finisher was Joseph Reindel in 84th place out of 364 U15boys.
Shelley Duffy and Simon Mead also had great runs to be our first senior woman and man to finish. Unfortunately a high level of withdrawals meant that our only complete team on the day was our senior mens team that finished 60th.
Results: (distances approx. Most races proved to be a bit longer than advertised!)
