Race Round Up #9 – 09/12/2018

We kicked off this weekend’s racing with more cross country, this time at the Greater Manchester Cross Country Championships at Boggart Hole Clough. I spoke too soon when I said last week that it looked like we’d escape any significant amount of mud this side of Christmas; it was very wet and very muddy. The course at Boggart is liked by many as it has it all; hills, mud and ditches, and it didn’t disappoint on Saturday. Well done to all who braved the weather, and thanks to Linda for the cakes!

Today the main event was the Stockport 10 mile – a firm favourite in the MFR race calendar and 13 of you journeyed down to Stockport early this morning. 6 of you ran the race (and the distance) for the first time, well done to Amy, Kunaal, Steve W, Laura, Darren and Alex. A big congratulations also to Billy who took nearly 7 minutes off his PB form last year!

In other news, Nick Markley jetted off to Malaga and ran the Malaga Marathon in an impressive 03:46!

Finally Tess, Claire and Rachel had some fun at the Winter Bible in the Park in Oldham dressed as Miss Piggy, the Little Mermaid and Kermit!
