As well as Charlotte, there were 100% Awards for Emma Raven, Dale Jenkins, Dave Lodwick, Ben Milsom, Marcus Shaikh and James Thurman. Well done to all of our winners!

Holly Hayes XC

The woods were at their autumnal best and the course was technical but fast. If the rain had stayed away it would have been just perfect! George made his cross country debut and most of those who were new for this season came back for another go. Considering most of the runners had been at the club dinner the previous evening, no one seemed worse for wear. For the men, the oldies were to the fore with Richard G, Dave and Dale following Dave P home. Bec was top hoggette with Aruna, Helen and Janet making up the scoring four. Results.

Prestwold XC

team shot

We had a new course to enjoy. Whilst those who had run the Midlands or the Intercounties here where familiar with much of the terrain, the organisers had added a few little twists to add some interest to a diet of parkland. We had 7 ladies and 17 men, including some new starters. Richard G is an old hand at XC but it was Sam Crouchman's first race of any kind and Usha and Siobhan both had only a single 10K to their names. Beautiful sunshine compensated for a rather cold wind and our runners enjoyed the fast ground. Full report to follow. Results.

Bagworth Heath XC

What a joy to be back racing over the country! Shifting Bagworth to October meant that there was enough mud to add a bit of interest but not the endless, strength-sapping stuff we're used to. A marshalling mistake which shortened one of the laps also contributed to making this race slightly less of a challenge than usual. Our strong contingent of regular mud lovers was boosted by new second claimers Julie and John, plus we had Harry and Aruna making their XC debuts. Trudy and Julie provided the all important fuel and Kim kept everything running smoothly. Results.

League Champions!

Massive congratulations to our veteran ladies, who are Leicestershire Road Running League champions for 2017. They won every round, bar the first (our own race), and wrapped up the title with a race to spare. This is the first time in our history that one of our teams has won the league outright.
