Despite being in the middle of exams, on the 16th January many of our athletes took some time out from revision to take part in the last North Midlands XC race of the season, which was conveniently located at Wollaton Park directly next to campus. The weather was beautiful, and the ground wasn’t too muddy creating good racing conditions.
There were lots of promising performances, especially with BUCS XC so close. The men’s team finished 5th in this race out of 28 teams. There were great performances by everyone and in particular Jack Millar (31st), Alex Bradford (34th), Will Morris (42nd) and Sam Broomhead (48th). Even though the women team was somewhat depleted they still managed a respectable team position of 6th with impressive individual performances. Megan Gildea finished 21st, closely followed by Hannah Hardy (26th), Katie Buckingham (37th), Hannah Fleet (48th) and Jules Servante (54th).
Well done to everyone who competed and good luck to everyone competing on 6th February at BUCS in Gloucester!
