Ben Phillips (U15) was the sole club representative at the South of England XC Championships held at Parliament Hill on Sat 25th Jan. The race is one of the most competitive in the XC calendar and Ben’s should feel very proud to come away with 88th out of 317 runners.
One race isn’t enough for Tony Bacon so he decided to compete in both the Velopark 5K (Sat 25th) and the Velopark 10K (Sun 26th). His 5K time was an impressive 18:04 (3rd place) and his 10K time was an even more impresive 35:38 (8th place). His 10K pace was only a few seconds slower than his 5K pace, which is quite a feat after one days recovery. It was also his 3rd fastest 10K time.
Karina Hunt also ran the Velopark 5K, finishing in 32:54. Well done Karina.
