Saturday 14th November was the second North Midlands XC race of the season, at Glebe Park in Corby. The weather was horrendous; raining, muddy and downright dismal. About 20 brave souls boarded the coach to Glebe Park. Just like in Derby, the women’s race was over a 6km course and the men’s race was over a 10km course, which had turned into somewhat of a mud bath due to the weather.
The highlight of the day came when our very own Aubree Piepmeier stormed to victory in the women’s race. Her performance was backed up by strong runs from the rest of the girls including Beth Neal, Alice Hughes, Katie Buckingham and Emma Nicholson. The men’s race was equally as exciting with Alex Bradford and Tom Wocial having a close finish, in 33rd and 34th place respectively. Very good performances from the rest of the team which included Mark Freeman, Ewan Mclachlan, Joshua Headley Scott, Joe Murray, Matthew Grammatico and Allan Wilson.
Well done to everyone who came despite the miserable weather! Hope to see more good performances at the next race!
