This year we were joined by Ian McCarthy, Mark Cross and Mark Newell and with yours truly running round a second time we were able to complete a "B" team, coming 43rd. We were also pleased to be joined by 3 of the club's women this being the first (and hopefully not the last) time that we had entered a ladies' team in this event (for which see separate race report).
As always it was an enjoyable afternoon, it is a lovely course and the heavy rain of the preceding night and morning gave way to better weather right on cue. Each leg is just 2.5 miles so after all the longer cross country races we have being doing it seems that no sooner have you started you have already finished (even the second time round!) and the relay format makes a nice change giving plenty of time to spectate and cheer as well as run.
