National Cross-Country Championships, Saturday 21st February, Parliament Hill Fields, London

Posted 25 February 2015

Flat, firm and fast - all the factors that do not describe the 2015 National.

For those competitors choosing to start a little slower, problems were encountered within two minutes of the gun as over two thousand runners swept up the hill and tried to squeeze through a small gap in a hedge. Almost comical - certainly frustrating. Heavy conditions underfoot and several other pinch-points reduced the 7.5 mile race to a three mile event. However, for those who wished to get a good place at the finish, they were wise enough to shuffle near the front and storm off for the first half mile.

Birmingham & District Invitation Cross-Country League, Saturday 7th February 2015 Race Report

Posted Thursday 12 February 2015

The final race of the 2014 /2015 Birmingham League drew the smallest field of the season but one of the most exciting finishes with six runners belting across the line within 55 seconds. Cheltenham Harriers were denied individual glory on their home fixture as Brum Uni's Jon Davies won in 30 minutes dead, but Cheltenham put in a sub-100 score to win on the day and finish third overall behind Birmingham University and Loughborough Students. Jolly good, well done chaps.

Midland Cross-Country Championships race report

Bill Nock reports on the Senior Men’s race
Wollaton Park is a classic ‘big race’ venue, and the course for this year’s Midland Champs over a four lap, undulating, sinuous course with firm, fast grass and a short slog through thick mud was befitting of one of the ‘blue riband’ events of the cross-country season.
