The second round of the Lincolnshire Cross Country League was held at the Castledyke Equestrian Centre near Boston, a venue that is notorious amongst local running clubs. On a challenging course that includes grass tracks, woodland paths, plenty of mud and a few water crossings, members were treated to a true Cross Country experience.
Unfortunately due to a clash of dates, many regular team members were racing elsewhere but this encouraged two members to make their Cross Country debuts for the club where they more than stepped up to the mark.
In the ladies race it was Jos Smith finished in a fine 4th place, just missing out on the top three by only one second. Andrea Ward had a good solid run for 25th place but with no other ladies racing no points were scored for the team.
In the men's race it was Piers Pye-Watson who made a fine start to his Cross Country season racing in the green and black with an excellent 9th place. Peter Bonner in 22nd and Joaquim Jeronimo 24th completed the scoring for the Men's A team and their tally of 55 points was the 3rd best team score of the round. Other finishers were Chris Toon 46th, Paul Davis 53rd, Samuel Jepson-Rivers 61st Nev Chamberlain 64th Paul Jepson 65th and Andrew McAllister 69th.
Attention now turns to Match 3 on the 18 Nov, in the far more familiar surroundings of Belton House.
