Medal haul at National Cross Country Championships, Herrington Park, Sunderland
There were some terrific individual and team results despite the wintry conditions. The day started with a couple of inches of snow underfoot and for the earlier races, it snowed continuously until about lunchtime. The snow underfoot quickly gave way to heavy, sludgy mud to make conditions difficult to run in, not too dissimilar to the snow at the Midland Championships at Stafford Common several weeks ago.
Despite the conditions, the athletes gave a great account of themselves and is was one of the most successful championships that the club has had in recent years.
