Well done to the hardy group of athletes who made the long journey North for the National XC Championships in Sunderland. As with many races this year conditions (snow and mud this time) did not make for easy running! The highlight for the club was a 5th place finish by the junior women, with Katie Ingle 11th, Megan McBrien 18th and Miranda Stoddart 65th. The team was only 1 point behind the 3rd place team.

Well done to everyone else who competed. Videos of the races are available on the Athleticos website here. Results are available here.
