Birchwood Cross Country Results

25th February 2018

The final race of the Cross Country season was at Birchwood on a cold and frosty Sunday morning. The course itself was slightly less muddier than usual but the 'water feature' was still a challenge. The combined men's team came 6th and the ladies came 5th

22nd February 2015

Snow was forecasted yet six members turned out for the Birchwood XC. The pool was a puddle but after running round the first lap, the mud began to appear and was definitely the sticking point on the final lap. Finally the snow appeared whist we were having the refreshments, that was timed well!

November 2012

This was a very muddy race. We turned up and it was cold wet and windy, not much hanging around at the start. The race hit mud within 5 seconds of starting and this set the tone for the rest of the race. Last years water feature was one of many this year. The weather improved and we all got around safely. It was cross country debuts for Tarja and Andy, literally thrown in at the deep end! Results below and there some pictures in our Flikr albums.
