28 senior club members and 21 juniors ran in the first Derby Runner Cross Country League fixture at Bagworth Heath on 22nd October, with several members doing their first race with the club.
The ladies team did particularly well finishing 2nd out of 25 teams, the men came a respectable 11th (7th in div 1) and combined team 9th (6th in div 1). I am also told the cakes Jenny and Kirsty brought were very good, and that our new hot drink facility provided welcome fortification against the high winds.
We have raised a query about the league tables as Hinckley ladies team are showing in division two despite winning the division last season. (Edit: Confirmed Edit 2: final tables now updated above) We also understand the juniors results may currently be incomplete due to some problems with duplicated/missing numbers.
The next XC league race is at Prestwold Hall on Sun 12th November – details to follow when available.
