30th - Southern CC Champs at Parliament Hill - Ant Budarkiewicz(M50) was yet again our sole rep.,finishing well in 283rd/806 in the Senior 9 Miles(64.41) - if he were not the loyal & committed stalwart,bred with the innate cross country championships ethos,one might wonder why he bothered any more with little or no support.To be fair,Gaby & Jenny Miles were all set to run there but it became logistically impossible and they ran successfully in the Belton Meet instead.
