A classier and altogether more competitive field of over 400 runners confronted Ian Landucci and Adair Broughton at the UK Cross Country Nationals. It was a great day. Lots of mud and just as many smiles. I have a list of the complete results for all age categories if anyone wants me to send them a pdf file. Otherwise, as this race was also part of the Liverpool and District Series, a link to those results can be found here.
A trickier course with lots of heavy going in places and stated as 9.8km; quite a test but it stayed clear of rain and the two Helsby runners had some nice support from Paul Frodsham and David Alexander on the three lap route, as well as unknown faces cheering us along.
30th Adair Broughton 35.47 (189th in UK Nationals)
82nd Ian Landucci 40.10 (303rd in UK Nationals)
Please note that the next Cross Country Club Counter is the more relaxing Northwest Sunday League at Arrowe Park this coming Sunday at 11.30am. The incentive does not yet appear to be working, but free tea and biscuits and sandwiches to all participants after the race. Venue details here
Hope to see you soon and maybe at a race!
In the meantime enjoy the crisp, fresh winter air
