Cross Country Championships

Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire held their Cross Country championships at the same time at the same venue, Markeaton Park on a cold windy day, and given Long Eatonís location, Captain Rich Wilkinson was able to split the runners from Long Eaton, with 10 running in the Notts Championships and 13 in the Derbyshire Champs. As it was LERC took 2nd Place in 2 categories. The Ladies (Sharon Orridge, Monica Fee and Annette Trindell) took 2nd place in the Notts Champs with the Veteran Men doing likewise in the Derbys Champs, improving on 4th the year before and only missing 1st by 6 points. County Vests were achieved by Mark Boot who finished 4th in the under 17 race and Sharon Orridge who also finished 4th in the ladies 8k. There were many good individual performances from Long Eaton with times only just outside road 10k times, Andy McNeil was 2nd vet in the Derbys race and finished 10th overall. Rich Wilkinson was pleased with the LERC performances and a big thank you has to be given to him for all his hard work in organising the team.
