Race Report W/E 26th January
Hopefully everyone got their racing and training in before the weather finally broke this afternoon. We had 4 events taking place over the weekend: cycling, trail running, cross country, and a 10k.
Southern Cross-Country Championships
Over at Parliament Hill, John Borton was racing in the South of England Cross Country Champs – 8.4 miles of muddy undulation. It looks like he did well, but we’ll confirm actual results in the week when they’re published.
At the slightly shorter (and less hilly) end of things, new club member Sami Niemi was racing in the RunThrough Brixton 10k in Brockwell Park.
He finished well within the top 20% of the field and top third of all men running, with a time of 47 min!!
Full Gas Crit Series
Joe Coleman and Calum Williams were both on their bikes this weekend at Lee Valley. Sounds like some fun fast racing from both, with Joe coming 10th.
Maverick West Sussex Trail Race
Over in the South Downs National Park, not far from Arundel, Krista Kojecky donned her trail shoes for the latest edition of the Maverick Trail Series.
She completed the 15km Medium course in a great time of 1hr 25min, finishing just outside the top 10% of women racing and well within the top 25% of the entire field!
And that’s your lot.
