Birmingham XC League Div 1 – 11 November

Posted: November 14, 2017 by RSCAC in Race reports


A big thank you to all those who ran on Saturday at Cheltenham. The A team finished 13th out of 16 teams which puts us just above the relegation zone, not bad considering we were missing a number of regular A team counters. Well done to our x/c debutants Barry, Valentin and Ashley who all scored in the A team – something to live up to now lads (except for Valentin who will be leaving the UK this week to return to France – Thank you and all the best for the future, we hope you have some happy memories of RSCAC and English cross country to take home with you).

An even bigger thank you to Bob Owen who acted as our “Official” for the day, saving a penalty of 200 points had we not provided our “finish funnel” official.


The 2nd fixture is on Saturday 2nd December at Park Hall Country Park, Hulme Road, Weston Coyney, Stoke-on-Trent (post code for SAT-NAV ST3 5AX). Please let Steve know if you are planning to compete.

20171114_205925Here’s Roy’s report from the 1st women’s XC match at Coventry on Saturday.
An excellent performance by our team finishing in 13th position, with 6 runners turning out, our best for a long time. The team consisted off
  • Gemma Sidaway
  • Georgia Delaney
  • Rachel Thebridge
  • Kirsty Stygall
  • Lydia Sergiew
  • Lucy Stubbs
It was great to see Kirsty, Lydia and Lucy turning out for us for the first time and special thanks must go to Lydia completing the last lap with an extremely painful heal blister and Lucy turning up although recovering from illness.
So thank you all for running and I look forward to seeing you and others on the start line at Stratford on the 2nd December.

West Midlands Young Athletes XC

Posted: October 15, 2017 by RSCAC in Race reports

A fantastic effort by all our Young Athletes who kicked off the XC season at Hatton Country World today. Conditions were very “un-cross country like” with a fast rock hard course and mild temperatures – I’m sure it won’t be like that in December and January!!! The club finished 4th overall with lots of great individual and team performances. Well done everyone!
