Race 3 - Adderbury

7th January 2018

Round 3 of the XC league season is held at the closest venue to Hooky of the series at Bo Peep Farm in Adderbury. A really good course, not as muddy as we were expecting! Many of the Harriers wore trail shoes as much of the course was hard, although our faster runners felt spikes gave better grip - judging by their results - they were right!. A special thanks to Sandra and Claire who spent a long morning in the cold, volunteering. All the runners were grateful to them both for the support and cheering - Claire provided fantastic individual photos for each Harrier. 

 

13 male finishers and 6 female finishers was a great turn-out from Hooky for Race 3! Hopefully see you all on 4th Feb at Lawns Park in Swindon

Race 2 - Carterton

3rd December 2017

Without a venue with just 2 weeks to go before round 2 of the XC league season we all assumed that we wouldn't have a round 2 to compete in. But, thanks to the very hard work of the Oxon XC team and some very kind offers of volunteer help at the last minute (including Sandra and Martyn from the Harriers) a venue was found (Killkenny Lane Country Park in Carterton) and the match was on! 

 

As a result it was a slightly depleted team from the Harriers with many already committed to other events or unavailable. Initially we only had 6 men, so not quite a team, but massive thanks goes out to Martyn who not only volunteered at the finish line in the cold until the last second, but also did a quick change into his running kit and joined the mens team for the race. We had 7 men and 4 ladies in the end, so well done everyone for making it happen.

 

We also saw our first outing of the new tent! It's huge! Comfortably fitting us all inside after the races had finished for a lovely hot cuppa. In fact, it was so cosy that by the time we all came out pretty much everyone else had left!! A big thank you also needs to go out to the ladies from Bicester Tri who kindly ran and crossed the line with Victoria when she was having a really tough run. Thank you ladies, you're all stars!

Race 1 - Newbury Show Ground

5th November 2017

This years XC season kicked off in style at Newbury showground. 20 Harriers turned up to race, some for the first time in this XC format. Newbury is a relatively flat course, but a testing one, and it's always windy! It was cool as well, and by the time the adult races were underway the ground was softening a bit. Despite all that every Harrier raced brilliantly, and another year of XC love/hate relationships were founded!!

 

There have been a few issues with results, so currently poor Simon doesn't have a position or time, but we will update them as we get more information. We were able to field a full mens team of 7 (plus a few) and 3 ladies teams of 3! Well done everyone. Hopefully we'll have even more at the next round.

 

UPDATE (13/11/2017): The results have been finalised!
