17/03/2018  English Schools XC Champs, Leeds

Derek Darnell reports:  At the English Schools Champs yesterday Issy Wilkins improved from last year's 116th position to finish 54th (out of 342 in 12:19) in the Junior girls race despite taking a tumble into the mud mid way through the race. Issy was again first finisher for Cambs Schools. Conall McGinness (183/339 20:02)and Nicole Covell (287/323 21:13) finished further down their fields, finding it tough going as the weather and ground conditions worsened into the afternoon. Unfortunately, Joey Croft had to drop out early on but made the correct decision as he was clearly unwell.

Well done to all the Hunts runners (including Shannon who finished 14th in the Intermediate Girls race with 14:19) and spectators Rob, Alan, Sarah, Gaynor, Amelia and I, and the Waller family) for enduring the really cold wind and snow blowing across the course. Or should I call it the quagmire!

11/03/2018  Frostbite League, Jubilee Park, Huntingdon
The Huntingdonshire AC junior cross country runners made it the perfect season as they won the final Frostbite League race held at Jubilee Park Huntingdon.  Winning all six cross country races over the past six month against 15 other clubs, the Hunts AC junior team clinched the title for the second year in a row.  Leading the way for Hunts AC in 3rd place in the field of 184 which included 40 Hunts AC runners, Caspar Hiscock clocked 8:46 and was quickly followed in five seconds later by Shannon Flockhart who was the first girl to finish in 5th place overall. Seb Darnell (10th 9:05), Issy Wilkins (13th 9:09) and Spencer Taylor (15th 9:18) closed out the scoring team.  Kudos must go to Casper and Issy who both ran for Cambridgeshire AA in the Inter-Counties cross country championships near Loughborough.  Issy was a standout in this race as she placed 37th of 304 runner over the 4k course. This was the last junior race for Casper, Shannon and Seb before they move up to the senior distance next season.  Seb was given a special presentation for having competed in the most races ever in a junior career.  Out of 41 possible races over seven seasons, Seb ran in 38.  When the team race scores were tallied, Hunts AC ran out comfortable winners with 46 points to second-place Riverside Runners on 78 points with BRJ third with 102 points. With five previous wins, this team victory gave Hunts AC the maximum score in the final standings of 90 points with Riverside second with 82 points and BRJ third on 77 points.

Derek Darnell reports: Eight Hunts AC juniors represented Cambs AA in the Inter Counties XC at Prestwold Hall near Loughborough today. Conditions were tough with slushy mud everywhere. However, the this did not prevent Joey Croft and Issy Wilkins having great runs to finish 34th in the U20M and 37th in the U15G respectively. Unfortunately Nicole Covell was unable to finish her race but Katie Wright, Amelia Darnell, and Lucy Waller, Howard Croft, and Casper Hiscock all made it to the finish of their races, getting covered in plenty of mud on their way! Well done to all on their selection for this and running today.
