Results and Videos from the
National XC Relays
The National Cross Country Relays were held on Saturday 2nd November at Berry Hill Park in Mansfield.
Event Report from Andy Carter:
"Well, that's the relays finished, and all of the coaches want to congratulate everyone who has taken part over the past month or so.
You have achieved some remarkably good results and the club has come away with medals from every meeting.
We have also been impressive in our turnout, on Saturday in the National Cross Country Relays we had athletes running in every race, and in 6 of the 10 races we finished 2 teams, we also had 6 top 10 finishes.
Pride of place has to go to the U17 Men's team of Sam Whitehead, Matt Sheen and Elliot Bowker who ran Trafford really close in taking the silver medal.
Elliot Bowker continued his rich vein of form in finishing 3rd fastest of the day.
It is especially pleasing to see 2
Senior Ladies teams competing and even better to see both finishing higher than
we have ever finished in this event.
This year they had moved the start which did cause us a little difficulty in the U20 Ladies race (where we must have lost 30 or 40 secs) but we still came 4th which was a brilliant effort.
It is interesting to see the results the club achieved on Saturday :-
20th & 51st
16th & 66th
9th & 32nd
2nd & 36th
24th & 38th
10th & 29th
Nearly every team finished in the
top half, I think everyone will agree a really great effort.
Well done to you all!"
