2017 Oxfordshire XC Championships

A good turn out and strong performance from both the men’s & women’s teams at Stowe on Sat 7th Jan.

The 2017 Oxfordshire XC Championships were combined with Beds & Bucks at Stowe School, who provided an attractive course with plenty of hillsStowe XC Josie

We had a great turnout from both the Men’s & Women’s teams.  Both secured 5th position in the County, a creditable performance given the the injury issues several of our fastest runners experienced.

It was great to see Josie Harrison (5th) and Sophie Lloyd (13th) back from University.  Suzie (25th), Ros (13th V45) and Pippa (40th) continued their strong XC performances.  Welcome to Claire Nunn (23rd V35) & Becky Colliass (29th F45) who ran their first Cross Country race for the club.  Unfortunately Rachel Bennett pulled up after a strong start.

It was good to see Lucy Rycroft return to racing after injury (10th F17)
