The penultimate NEHL XC took place on Saturday and the wind and mud ensured that ‘proper’ XC conditions were provided! The girls were slightly down on numbers but both Jenna and Hasina ran a superb race from the medium pack to ensure we still got a good result, finishing in places 37 and 40 respectively. Well done to Suzanne, 236, and Sheila, 253, who completed the team.
The men also had a good day. Fourteen turned out and counters were Raymond Christie, Andrew Forbes, Jamie Collin, Bill Bowman, Auld Ken and John Cook.
The final fixture is Alnwick. This is a beautiful route, not too difficult and with the most amazing backdrop of the Castle. So get yourselves up there and let’s finish on a high!
