On Saturday 24th October, 30 Athletes travelled to Manchester to compete in the Manchester University XC relays. The women were split into teams of 3 and the men were split into teams of 6. Each competitor had to complete the 3km cross country circuit. We entered 4 teams for the women and 3 teams for the men.
The rain cleared just as the race started which provided good racing conditions even if it was a bit muddy underfoot. Yet again there were brilliant performances all around by Uon Athletics Club with Aubree Piepmeier coming 2nd women overall. The womens A team comprising of Aubree Piepmeier (10:18), Chloe Bird (10:58) and Aoife Thorogood (10:57) came 3rd womens team overall. The womens B team came an impressive 17th overall and the womens D and C teams came 25th and 26th respectively.
The men’s teams did impressively too. With the Mens A team (Alex Bradford, Daniel Leng, Will Patterson, Tom Wocial, Sam Broomhead and Jack Millar) came 23rd out of 63 teams. The mens B team came 35th and Mens C team came 49th.
A fantastic turnout from the University of Nottingham Athletics Club. We hope to see all the runners back for the next XC race!
