Saturday 7th January – Yorkshire Cross-Country Championships

The Yorkshire Cross-Country Championships took place at Thornes Park, Wakefield.

Andrew Robershaw texts in,

“Just me at the Yorkshires today. After all the recent rain the usual Thornes Park lap was shortened and made less hilly but the going was surprisingly firm underfoot.

The Brownlee brothers battled it out at the front with Alistair taking the honours (34.51).

I was a little further back and was pleased to finish 65th (41.23)”.
