Holme Pierrepoint was the first East Midlands XC race of the season. We congregated bright and early on the Sunday morning and took taxis to the race start. The weather didn’t look too promising, but, thankfully the rain held off. At 11 both men and women started the race together.
We had exceptional performances from all runners and came 1st Women’s and 1st Men’s team. The girls in particular had very good results with Beth Neal (2nd), Katie Buckingham (3rd), Jessica Heyward-Chaplin (4th) and Alex Newbury (29th). The men’s team came back with impressive results with Tom Wocial (6th), Jack Millar (9th), Will Morris (10th), Will Patterson (12th), Joe Harrison (40th), César Alegre (48th), Tom Welshman (59th), Matthew Grammatico (65th) and Michael McGill (73rd) bringing it home for the lads.
Thanks to everyone that competed for us and we hope to have another great turnout at the next East Midlands XC race on the 17th January at Bramcote Park.
