Matt's Final Report from a successful winter
Full results includng all Team Positions on download from TPOT.
I don't think anyone who ran yesterday could deny that the course was interesting- winding paths, sticking out branches, dodgy ice covered hills. 12 of us braved it.
The day started well in the junior race, with Phil Bearman junior finishing 2nd, only 9 seconds behind the leading runner. Well done Phil.
In the senior race, in his first cross country for K&P in a while George Corcoran did us proud, placing 8th. Our next three runners home arrived within only 15 seconds of each other, James Robertson (25th), Richard Mathie (27th), and Jamie McCullagh (28th)- it's been a pretty similar pattern over the season for these guys, very little separating them.
I arrived next in 43rd, and was followed by Andy Arbour (48th) and then Mike Maranzano (58th), the latter appearing to be getting back to form and enjoying the varied course.
Ant arrived next and was followed by David Greenfield, Bob McDonough and Geoff Reed.
We finished 5th on the day, and overall place in the League was 3rd. This is a great result- meaning we are one of the best clubs in our division- on a good day, and with everyone out, I'm sure we can push for Division one. As ever, let's set our sights on this next winter..
