Northern Athletics XC Relay – Graves Park results

Race Date: Saturday 22nd October 2016

Funny old game this running business innit? Here I am at Hillsborough park doing the parkrun in the Striders parkrun cup and smashing out my second best time ever, only my third ever sub 20 and finishing in 18th place out of 250+ runners and thinking hey, I’m maybe alright at this running business. Then I go to Graves park for the XC relays and get seriously put in my place. It was men against boys, but sadly the boys had far too much pace this this middle aged man who finished 64th out of 70. To put the quality of the field into perspective, Phil Skelton (and we all know how fast he is) finished 32nd out of 70. However, the most important thing about the cross country yesterday was that we all had good fun and enjoyed the experience. There are numerous groups of photos on facebook showing the full range of emotions and well worth a look.

Performance of the day has to be Fran Cummins who reeled in 12 other runners over 2 miles to bring her team from 50th place to 38th place. Awesome running Fran, well done.

Well done to all the runners and spectators who once again did the club proud.
