Well done, another great start to XCR season with top ten finished for most of the open men's and women's teams and some great results in the junior teams with 4 medals. We were lucky with the weather, perfect, not too warm or windy and the rain held off until the evening. It seemed that course was a little longer than last year and the course official said it was 3.1km... I’ll go with that, means I’m faster than last year!!
With many more teams in the competition than previous years our open men’s teams did well. Our Div 2, again led out by Jack Rayner and finishing a time of 18 minutes and 20 seconds was backed up well with solid performances from the other Div 2 men and a big improvement from Daniel Dunstone to sneak under 20 minutes. Our men’s Div 3 finished 8th, a fast finishing Adrian Jeffkins snuck in front of the Maccabi team to finish 4th and D7 was 13th amongst 31 teams!
