10/03/2018  Inter-Counties XC Champs, Loughborough  details
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. U13B 3K Howard Croft 179th/309 U15G 4K Issy Wilkins 37th/304 U17W 5K Katie Wright 211th/278 U17M 6K Casper Hiscock 184th/281 U20W 6K Amelia Darnell 161st, Lucy Waller 166th/170 U20M 8K Joey Croft 34th/174

17/03/2018  English Schools XC Champs, Leeds  details

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!
