North Midlands Cross Country League
The Last of the 4 Race series was held at Wollaton Park on the 17th of Jan a big turn out from Long Eaton saw 19 members running(16 men and 3 ladies). The 6.7 mile 3 lap mens course was nice to run on with a mixture of terrain with only one big puddle to deal with along with the ups and downs of the course. The Ladies did 2 laps. Good times were set by the LERCers and it was nice to see Monica Fee Back racing after her rest break over Christmas. The Senior Mens team finished 7th on the day, Vets were 9th and the Ladies were 12th.
The Results over the 4 races were as follows:-
Senior Men 8th
Vet Men 12th
Ladies competed with a full team in 3 of the 4 races.
On the whole LERC improved as each race came along with the seniors finishing 13th,16th,6th and 7th, Vets were 17th,14th,12th and 9th. The series was run by 34 different runners doing at least 1 of the races 27 men and 7 ladies. Captain Shaun Burton and Phil Abbott did all 4 along with Natalie Fryer for the Ladies who is rapidly becomming one of the fastest ladies in the club. All in all the NMXC league for 2008/2009 was a decent one.
Well done to those who took part.
