Mansfield National XC 2Nd Nov 2019

The Saucony English Cross Country Relays

The Saucony English Cross Country Relays went ahead on Saturday 2nd November at Berry Hill Park, Mansfield where they have been staged since 1989. Again over a 1000 teams had entered over the 10 Races with 205 in the Senior Men’s event and 145 in the Senior Women’s.

This event is now part of the build up to the Trials at the end of November to get into the GB Team for the European Cross Country Championships so many a potential athlete for that Team will be in action.

With such a top elite field expected Queensbury’s fastest ladies and our fastest available gents were sent to scare the opposition and they certainly did that that with a top 100 finish for the guys but more impressive was the 55th place finish for our 3 ladies.
