Fantastic to see 34 runners turned out today in Wootton. Lovely route round Delapre Park. There was a bit of a hill on the lap. Despite the rain this week, it wasn't too muddy. Although it was windy, most of the route was sheltered, however one field was fairly windy, including the finish. Great to see some first time XC runners, including Marcus and Naimh, who joined the club yesterday in order to run today.
The mens scored 200 with Jim, Ed, Adam, John, Matt, Stewart, Ryan and Nick.
The women scored 920 with Jane, Sarah, Linda and Naimh.
Provisional results are the men were 2nd, the women 8th and overall 4th. Great job #TeamNHRR
Well done to everybody!
Hopefully I'll get confirmation, of the results and also the standings overall later on this evening. So will update then.

Well done to you. Great XC Captain.
A very enjoyable day.
Good work, John. And well done to everyone who ran - and Jo, Pete and Mark supporting. Special thanks to Geoff for driving!
Really enjoyed getting the spikes back on and being part of the NHRR XC effort again. Onwards to Dunstable!
Well done everyone...love my new mug!
Well done everyone - particularly the XC newbies.
I enjoyed the run and thought that was a great course - wish I'd been a bit quicker for scoring purposes, but you can't have everything .....
OK, full results for today are;
127, Ampthill & Flitwick
56, Ampthil & Flitwick
685, Ampthill & Flitwick
Overall after 2 races
26, Ampthill & Flitwick
This means that overall we are 3rd by one point. Bedford and Ampthill are joint top, Bedford have it on overall scoring points.
Great job team, we are still in a great position. Next race is in 2 weeks time!
Well done all! Big turnout needed next time to keep us in contention for the overall title!
Well done to everybody who ran! Still all to run for on all fronts!
well done everybody - so sorry we couldnt be there due to a conflict :-(
gutted especially because this is my (Astrid) favourite XC course and my first ever XC (even if strangely everybody called me Jamie that day)
Well done all. It was good to be back at their original course though it was a long way from the new HQ.
Looking ahead I managed to find a GPS of the next course at Dunstable:
I'm sure nearly all of you will go round it faster than me though I would hope to as well next time. It's pretty hilly and can get very muddy in places..
Well done everybody. Great running today. John A, do you have female positions?
Brian, I created a segment for the Dunstable route earlier, however, I am just getting clarification of the route, as it still refers to January in the description- which is a copy/paste issue. It used to be the January route. So I don’t know if any of that is indeed correct. I emailed the league and the details on the website are not confirmed by Dunstable, they are just the same as before. The course map link is also broken...
I will post a thread when I get confirmation of these details.
Hi Jane, I do for the scoring team, yes.
John, yes I also found the links not working, but I assume the January refers to Jan 2015 which is when we last did that route. It was the same route all three times I'd ran it previously, though sometimes they sneakily reverse the direction. Also in the trace I linked to they added a little out and back on the NW corner to increase the distance over 5 miles.
Achy legs this morning but very glad to have our first XC under our belts! Thanks for having us along team NHRR, so good to meet so many of you yesterday!
