MMAC XC Championships 2012

A very successful cross country championships took place yesterday at Droitwich. Arriving at 9.00 am to help layout the course I thought that our runners were going to find it sticky going. But with a strong wind, which dropped off for the race, the course dried out considerably, making it ideal conditions.Coventry Godiva Harriers

I’ll let the results speak for themselves but I must thank all participants for making this such an enjoyable and friendly competitive event. Special thanks to Martin Smith, Droitwich AC, and his small band of helpers who laid out the course for us and to Tony Crocker whose friends made up the majority of marshals. Not forgetting our ever faithful officials. The sun came out to bless us and we couldn’t have organized the weather any better. If anyone who ran would like to write of their experience, I would be happy to post their article on to this page.

  1. Is there any matting or wood shavings over the river bridge this year? I have difficulty running on my heels with my toes stuck up in the air.

    • Alex, My guess is that it will be the same as last year, no mat. Droitwich AC put this event on for us and the course is left entirely to them. I do know that this course was used for the recent Worcester County CC Championships, as far as I’m aware with no difficulties. Not a satisfactory answer I know but the best I can do.
      I shall be marshaling at that point so please don’t shout at me!!!
      Have a good run and I’ll see you there.
