Another great team performance from HRR at the second race in the 53-12 cross country league. Hosted by Harwich Runners, the 5 mile race was held on farmland near Ramsey and with very strong winds to contend with, the muddy course was tough to say the least.

In Pool B with 4 men and 2 women making up the team score, it was Hazel Buist 21st and Mel Candler 22nd (in her first cross country race) who ran well to place us 2nd, only 2 points behind 1st placed Witham Running Club. Our men’s team put in another great performance to place 3rd out of the 6 Pool B teams, leaving us 2nd overall. Nathan Roulson led the way in 43rd, closely followed by Jon Buist 45th and then Jim Clark 55th held off the late challenge of Bob Langley who crossed the line in 57th.
