Club 5 Mile Cross Country Race
We had a record turnout of 55 runners (plus one dog) at the Club 5 this year with the race being well supported by members of other local clubs; there were also quite a few unattached runners, perhaps some of them will be running in Cambridge vests by the time of the next race in the series on the 27th of December?
Joyden’s Wood looked at its best in autumn sunshine with the leaves beginning to change colour, it was also at its driest which should have resulted in a fast winning time but, after a year long absence through injury, Dean Lacy is still some way off his best form. Would there be anyone in the field able to take advantage of this? No, not this time. It was the youngsters who came closest to rising to the challenge with 18 year old Jamie Atkins of Dartford Harriers finishing second and Cambridge’s 17 year old Bayley Massey third (and second in the club championship). The theme was continued with the first female finisher being Dartford Harrier’s talented 16 year old Holly Page.
Gregory Hills of Dulwich was 4th and James MacDonald in 5th place took the bronze medal in the club championship. The first of the five of Cambridge’s women to finish was Emily Meins.
