On Saturday was the annual running of the Northern Athletics Cross Country Championships. This year held at Pontefract Racecourse. It was a heavy course in parts and testing. No major hills of note but a good tester for future cross countries this season. It was a good turnout from the club and excellent performances. Even before we left Heaton picked up Kelly Dodds from the Parkrun to ensure her monumental Parkrun streak continued. Doing two races in a day is quite remarkable.

In the senior men’s race, Rob Salter was first home in a position of 234th in a time of 47:24 closely followed by Wayne Fuller in a time of 48:08 finishing 267th. The lads finished 35th team overall. Cracking effort all round fellas.

Meanwhile in the senior ladies race, Nina Cameron was first home in a splendid time of 36:21 (108th Position). Next home was Fiona Robins with a time of 37:23 (130th Position). The ladies finished 19th team overall. Well done ladies.

In the junior races, Thomas Green finished 169th overall in the U15 Boys race and Holly Matheson finished 51st overall in the U15 Girls race. Sterling performances by both.

I feel a special mention is in order. A truly epic and legendary effort was witnessed in the Senior Mens race. I think we may have a Kenyan on our hands. Danny Routledge, after one shoe went by the way side 3 miles into the race care of the boggy conditions, chucked the other shoe is the river. Thus results running the remainder of the race with no shoes. Cries of hero and sign him up, were heard from the stands. Top effort sir. See the picture for the aftermath……
