Yorkshire XC championship 4Th Jan 2020

Yesterday saw 10 QRC athletes head to Lightwater Valley for the Yorkshire County Cross Country Championships.

Although the standard of racing at the front is extremely high, it still attracts participants of all standards and they are great for putting QRC on the running map at more than just a local level.

Races range from U13’s to senior men/ladies, with the senior ladies racing over the start section and 4 medium laps (8250m) and the men over the start section and 5 medium laps (10320m). As Tom (cheers pal) mentioned earlier there is a top quality field with the winner of the men’s race finishing with a time of 30:59 and the ladies winner in a time of 28:22.

LADIES:
58th Lynne Robinson 35:26
102nd Jo Horan 39:11
150th Terri Mason 44:15

MEN:
40th Tom Collinge 34:34
94th Paul Greenwood 37:41
167th Simon Brady 41:24
175th Carl Heron 41:54
193rd Andy Dovernor 42:56
207th Chris Lane 43:02
211th Richard Brook 43:36

The NORTH OF ENGLAND XC champs takes place on the 25th January and is our next opportunity to get out to one of these events. If anyone is interested in entering, please let myself or Dovenor know before the middle of next week so everyone’s entries can be sorted out 🏃‍♂️🏃🏻‍♀️💪🏼
