Just to say many thanks to all who supported us at the Herts County XC in Stevenage today. There were NHRR members stationed at key locations all around the course, and it was a big boost to hear you all. We runners all commented on how great the Squirrel support was today - so thank you very much! You made a tough race much easier!
We second and third that. The support round the course and the hot drinks and cake at the finish. Caroline took a great photo with Sue’s phone of a group of us cheering the men on in our NHRR jackets.
Echo this message.
A big thank you to everyone who cheered us over the finish / lap start line but also a special mention to Adam and Pete who placed themselves at the crossover to cheer us on and shout words of encouragement and advice.
Also to Jo and Katie who cheered us on at the back corner of the course where it was a little quiet. Those 4 big shouts each time we can to that corner kept us going at a point where we could have started to flag.
Many thanks to all the support which made wearing the squirrels vest even more motivational today.
Well done to all our XC runners today. It was a pleasure to support you all.
I've put an album of photos on our Flickr gallery - link from the homepage of our website or straight to the album at:
Boys, that looked so hard !! We were horrified on your behalf when you just kept coming round and round. Big up to you all, that was a toughie. And, well done to you all x
