E.Mids XCountry Colwick

On Saturday evening Ruth Tall and her son James had great fun torch running at Clumber Park in the sold out National Trust Night Run.

Sunday morning saw nine intrepid Striders competing in event 3 of the East Midlands Cross Country League on a slipper, muddy and hilly course at Colwick Woods.
We worry about precisely how lightweight shoes are and what colour to buy when shopping for them…. then run around with a kilo of mud stuck around each foot – us runners eh ????

Official times from Colwick Woods.

Women; Nicola Bradley 26:16, Hannah Thomson 34:59, Holly Davis 35:07.

Men; Jan Bailey 38:32, Adam Clarke 43:10, Mark Winter 46:14, Peter Davis 46:34, Ben Barnard 49:28, Nick Harrison 77:10.

By all accounts only proper fell running would surpass the extreme conditions, so amazing results all round.
