National XC report from Temple Newsam Park, Saturday 16th March, 2019

A huge well done, to all the athletes who all ran their very best, on an exacting and very muddy course. Fortunately the rain was not too bad this year.

For some it was their first time, and they coped very well. Being surrounded by about 350 runners, knowing that they are with the best from each county is very daunting. However all ran very well and afterwards with many a muddy smile, the team managers were told that they look forward to more great performances in the future.

Well done especially to our seniors, many have been stalwart and reliable team members since year 7 at county level. Unfortunately they are moving after their A levels this summer. We wish them all the very best and hope that they will keep up the training.

I was delighted to see a past runner, who left last year and is now running for his university. He says that it helps him relax after studying- so good advice there.

Thank you to the 3 lady team managers who came for their first time. They have been inspired by you athletes and look forward to seeing your performances on the track this summer.

Finally if you have lost or found any kit just contact me, and I will try to get back to their owner.

Items I have got, which need a home:

  • Black ‘Nike’ trainers size 10
  • Small team tee shirt
  • Medium county running vest
  • Small Navy Blue England Rugby Hoody
  • Luminous Green small skin top
  • Small black skin and Canterbury track suit bottoms (were once jack Fitzpatrick’s)
  • Black padded Berghaus Coat

Thanks Andy
