Green and Gold X Country Stars!

nemaa1A small but perfectly formed team took to the hills of the Rising Sun Country Park for the NEMAA Open X-Country Championships on Saturday 4th Feb.

They all put in a fantastic effort with Keith O’Donnell 45th, Kris Stobbs 23rd and 6th v35. Elaine was 15th and 4th v35 so I’m hoping that means I was 5th v35 in 16th position.

We’d have been contenders for a team prize if we’d had just one more vet on each team. Such a shame with a competition like this on our doorstep. Come on vets, get your spikes on and let’s show ’em how it’s done next time!

A special mention must go to our awesome juniors Erin Prior and Sam Charlton who put in inspiring performances at the Schools X-Country in Cumbria. Erin was 7th overall and 2nd from Northumberland and Sam was 12th overall and 6th from Northumberland.

We are very proud to have these great young athletes as part of the Green and Gold family.

  • My first NEMAA XC and it was a proper XC course right on our doorstop. Hopefully we’ll get more vets there next year and bring back some prizes!

    Great running from Erin and Sam too.
