On the 14th February we gathered at 9am on the Sunday and took taxis to Colwick woods – the penultimate race of the season. This race was very close to the University so a number of athletes also chose to cycle to the race. Colwick Woods was undoubtedly the hilliest XC race of the season, but the weather was clear and bright which meant good running conditions.
As usual there were lots of superb results from both the men and the women. The men’s team came third with Alex Bradford (2nd) , Adam Houchell (6th), Daniel Leng (9th) , Joe Harrison (32nd) and Allan Wilson (63rd). The women’s team consisting of Alice Hughes (3rd), Eleanor Bradbury (8th) and Hannah Fleet (9th) did exceptionally well to come 1st team. Well done to everyone for performing so well on a tough course!
