Fantastic turn out this morning! Great support out on the course! Especially loved the corner heading out of Standalone with the band! :heart_eyes:
Brilliant weather for it too, thanks to Lucy for arranging that. :sunny:
Thanks to all the helpers for the event. Thanks to all that helped enable runners to run.
I spoke to quite a few of the reps at the end and only heard positive feedback on the whole event. :+1:
Thanks to Jennie and Linsey for doing the scoring. :hand:
41 Squirrels ran. :chipmunk:
We actually got our best result of the season so far. Both the men and women scored the lowest scores so far. :boom:
This lead to both the men and women finishing 2nd place each, but the combined team won!
Thats 3 combined victories out of 3! We’re awesome! :+1:
Looking forward to the next race at Amptill...
I’ll post full results when available, and the overall league results.
So, on the day...

It was my first XC and I throughly enjoyed it I ran the whole thing and gave it my all even on the hills I really pushed myself and it paid off I over took loads of people just gutted I didn't look at the little plastic thing for my position! Great race great weather for it thanks all
Congratulations everyone, you’re an inspiring team!
Brilliant morning for our club. Great to get a cheery shout from every marshal.
Well done everyone, and let's have a special word for those who turned out in bitter conditions yesterday to start the set-up and mark out the course. Character-forming stuff.
Hayley - you were 356th. Good running!
Thanks James how many runners please lol 😂

Thanks for posting these, what a team!
I really enjoyed my run today and ran it considerably faster than I did last year! I definitely felt an advantage from wearing my mudclaws as I overtook some people who were slipping in the mud.
An extra big thanks to everyone who organised the race and marshaled so that us XC lovers were able to run!
Congratulations everyone on putting on another awesome event. So many people working so hard over the weekend to make it easy for the runners.... the marshals were brilliant! Love being apart of NHRR.
Wow I'm pretty flipping impressed with that then lol
Huge thanks to everyone who marshalled and helped today, enabling some of we xc freaks to run - I can't tell you how encouraging it was the be name-checked at virtually every marshal point!
I heartily agree with all the comments here about the organization today and a big thanks to all who stood out in the cold marshalling your encouragement was most appreciated.
Great team effort from a great team.
Fantastic race and support from everyone although my lower position wasn't help
when I did a somersault in the mud trying to pass another runner.
