East Mids Trent Meadows – Race Report

There was a good turnout of runners on the 21st Feb for the final race of the XC season. We got taxis to the race and arrived in ample time to walk the course. The course was one of the wettest courses consisting of large sections of deep puddles and mud which proved challenging during the race.

East Mids Colwick Woods – Race Report

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!

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.

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.
