    Witton Park XC pics 14/3/09

    Looked a tough course today with the extra hill. Due to a cold I opted for the photo option. Link to pics at Flickr site below:

    Thanks Ady - some good pics and very prompt.

    Feedback to the new climb was exellent. It was tough, but I enjoyed it.

    Hope everyone else did that had a go - Danbert, KevSpider definitely there and got around in one piece.

    This was a thoroughly enjoyable cross country route with some nice undulations - tough going up but great coming down!! It was decent under foot too, with just the odd bit of gloop and a nice splashy bog bit.

    Thanks to all at Mid Lancs League and host club, Blackburn harriers.

    So did you finish?

    What about your Rochdale buddy - let's face it Brian from Oldham managed fine and gave me a pat on the back afterwards for devising a cracking course.

    I think the U20 issue generally is affected by the Inter Counties last week and also the English Schools next week.

    It clearly was the case for some of my club's athletes, as was the fact that there was a Northern Endurance Junior Squad get together scheduled for this weekend that affected the numbers in the U17 and U20 categories.

    This end of season finale is traditionally more difficult for our U20's and under to fit in than our Seniors, as our seniors are now done for the year.

    But where were Ben Fish, Tom Cornthwaite, Tony Ford, Luke Minns, etc the Inter Counties athletes - so take nothing away from those that were there, but it's the "easiest" race of the season to get a high placing at.
